Pro Tip: Apache Won’t Start If Skype’s Running

protipnoskypeapache

If you’re using Xampp for your localhost and you can’t get Apache to start up check to see if Skype’s already running. Apache runs on Port 80 by default (or something like that) and that port’s saved for web servers, something that Skype will hog.

The Tip

Close Skype, start Apache, and then you can run Skype again. But make sure Apache’s up and running before going anywhere near Skype.
