Another Web Server Daemon is Already Running
XAMPP displays a message like:
Another web server daemon is already running.
To solve this problem, follow these steps:
Open a new Linux terminal.
Use the netstat command to identify which other service is currently using port 80 and/or 443.
sudo netstat -tunap | grep LISTEN
Terminate services currently using those ports - for example, using a command like service [process-name] stop.
You should now be able to start Apache successfully.
