If you are a programmer working in any technology that required a web server then you must have come across this scenario where you get an error “Port 80 is in use by other process”.
The firs step you do is to find out which process are using port 80 and our good old netstat command comes into picture which is kinda cool but doesn’t always show you which process is responsible
You can save lot of time by executing command “net Stop Http”.
This will stop all Http operations using port 80 as well as show you list of services using port 80 which you can disable if not needed.
Hope this helps
