Windows 10: http binds to port 80 in Win 10, and cannot be disabled

    http binds to port 80 in Win 10, and cannot be disabled


    Having upgraded to Win 10, I was pleasantly surprised at how well everything went, until I tried to start my Apache web server. Even though IIS is not installed, there is a http daemon running, that is (a) bound to port 80, and (b) doesn't appear in the services panel. So I stopped the service, using 'net stop http', and got a load of warnings about dependencies. Great, Apache now runs .. yay! However, i then tried to print something, and Windows declared that I had no printers, even though they could be seen in the control panel. So, web services, on port 80, are used internally for things like Upnp, SSDP, and cannot be used for 'normal' web servers ........ great!

    What's the problem with using, let's say, 8080? I get it that port 80 being blocked by default is subpar. Need to check that on my machine.

    That's exactly what I've done, but I should have the choice of what's running on port 80. Also, it took me a while to work out why Apache wouldn't start, and assumed that it was a Win 10 incompatibility; It should be the Windows services that avoid port 80, not the user!

    Is skype running? Skype likes to use port 80 for some reason. Just turn off skype and run your server then run skype again.

    I refer you to my original post .... it's the http daemon.
