    Here you go:

    If Skype is installed on your machine, then follow following steps:
    Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Connection.

    Disable the "Use port 80 and 443 for alternatives for incoming connections"

    Sign Out and Close all Skype windows. Then restart your Apache Server.


    Change the port of Apache Server , by default it is "80", you can change to "82"
    same changes needed in config file "httpd.conf"
