Skype is borking Foswiki on a stick

Lately my foswiki on the stick has been throwing this error whenever I try launch it, looking into C:\xampp\apache\logs\error.log, this comes up:

(OS 10048)Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted. : make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

Skipping the long winded troubleshooting narrative, I remember that I just upgraded Skype to After shutting down Skype, I am able to bring Foswiki up again.

It's interesting that Skype uses port 80 to do it's business.


Skype uses whatever it can get its hands on to do its dirty work.

Heya :)

I keep thinking about changing the Foswiki on a USB stick to use Plack, and to auto pick a port, but i only rarely find out that anyone's using it :)

Cheers for the ack
Foswiki on a Stick, on debian, on rpm, and well, developer :)
