XAMPP : Another web server daemon with ssl is already running

XAMPP ERROR : Another web server daemon with ssl is already running


If you are facing this error, it means your ssl port is already busy.
This is very simple problem and you do not need to change your apache port.

ssl service uses port 443. If you are running a process which is using this port and after that you are starting xampp, xampp doesn't start. The reason is xampp's Apache uses 80 & 443 both ports.

Solution :
Step-1
You need to stop the service which is using port 443.
Step-2
Start the XAMPP.
Step-3
Start that service again.

If you do not know about that service which is using port 443, find it using
# netstat -lnp | grep :443
It will list the service which is using port 443. Now you can stop it.

If you do not know how to stop it, just kill the service using
# killall service-name
I am giving you an example of this.
I am getting this error and I tried to find which service is using port 443. I found it using netstat command and kill it using killall command.

You can kill it using it's pid too.
See the screenshot what I did to solve the problem.
