Xampp Starting Error

Try to start xampp on some day and getting below error

"Port 80 in use by "unable to open process" with PID 4:

How to proceed:
  • Open Task manager
  • Look for the PID with number 4, probable it will be "NT Kernel and system"
  • Open CMD and check the processes that are running with port number 80
netstat -o -n -a | findstr 0.0:80

  • After searching on google, came to know that the PID process is related to SQL server Reporting server. 
  • Go to services
  • Stop all services related to SQLServer
  • Stop and start services for apache and mysql
  • It Works!!!!

Other Possible Processes :

VMWork Station
