disable ISS in vista


Recommended Posts

i used search and couldn't find anything about this problem

i have a friend of mine who is wanting to use uniserver to host a small website i have used 4.3 mona for ages but i'm on xp so it wasn't a problem with me but his is becoming a pain in my side i'm also using the new version of uniserver 5.7.4-Nano i tried to install mona as well still have this same issue


now keep in mind it is vista and i hate vista i start the server and it says i cant start apache because "IIS is running skype may also cause this issue"

ok no problem i go into his features to disable the IIS but to my surprise IIS is already disabled and wont start up when windows start.. i tried to dump cookies , cache and other stuff but still getting that same error

is there another program that will be interfering with this and is there a way to run the uniserver without having to change the ports cause he don't want to have to give people a URL that looks like this http://his_site.com:8080 he just wants to be normal http://his_site.com

i hope i am making since on this or perhaps i'm over looking something

any help would be great

thank you

You said IIS is currently off so it isn't IIS the service running on port 80.


Open a command prompt window and type: netstat -anbp tcp (press enter) {edited}

You should have an idea of who's running on that port.


By the way, it could easily be skype running in port 80 (I hate skype :) )
