Skype, You may find difficulty when using Skype and Apache server on the same
computer at the same time. Your Apache server may not respond, its services may
not run properly.Both the Apache server and Skype are using port 80 for their service and
hence the conflict occurs.
I have just discovered 3 simple methods to solve Wamp and Skype conflict.Solution: 1 (from Skype)
You have to change the port number of Skype application manually is the first method.
Open Skype -> Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Connection
And uncheck option “use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming
connections”, and SAVE. That’s all.
Solution: 2 (from WAMP)
Second method is to change the Port number of Wamp Server. When you install
wamp server, by default port number 80
is set in your httpd.conf file. You can change that port number to some other
number, so that this problem won’t happen again.
Skype having alternate port numbers (80 or 443). If you run Wamp server
before Skype then you won’t get this conflict. That means when you are running
wamp first then it will take port 80 and then Skype will take 443.
Unfortunately Skype having option ‘to run Skype when open your windows’. So,
we can solve this issue by two methods,
1) Quit Skype -> Run Wamp
-> Run Skype
2) Open Skype -> Tools ->
Options -> General Settings and uncheck option ‘Start Skype when I start
These are the 3 steps to solve WampServer and Skype conflicts, Cheers.. !!
