Question Lampp won't start Apache..."another web server daemon running". Ubuntu 9.10

I installed LAMPP a couple of weeks ago and was working fine. Today when I try to start lampp, it will only start MySql and ProFTPD. It says "XAMPP: Another web server daemon is already running." How can I find out where this other server is located and stop it?

You could try :

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop

sudo /usr/sbin/apache2ctl stop

Have you installed another apache server ?

sudo ps -u apache


sudo ps -u nobody

To see a list of processes owned by the usual apache owners.

If it's the xampp apache running then it doesn't matter, leave it running.

Or stop all the servers and then try starting them again.

Check ps -e for this web server. Then try to figure out which one of the startup scripts starts it (use PID's to figure out boot sequence).
