Problem With My Port 80, Please Help

Alright, heres my problem, i'm running Apache webserver and all of a sudden one day it stoped responding. i tried reinstalling and all that stuff and a friend told me that the port is probably being used by something else. the day before the server stoped responding, i installed a program called Brewsky8900. THis program trasfers stuff between my comp and phone. i think its using a com port but not really sure. i just scanned my ports and it said that the port 80 is open, that would make sense cuz the apache server is on but its not responding for some odd reason. cold Brewsky8900 be blocking the port to my webserver? if it is how do i clear it up and get the webserver running?

it could be the problem and if it is - the best solution is to go for a format and clean install =)

It could be that the Firewall is stopping it. It sounds more that you are running Linux, not Microsoft OS product.

You may wish to post over in the Unix/Linux forum for more help. Also you may wish to post your Apache Config if requested so that you may be better assisted in your situation.

As for the Format/Reinstall Anon User, you cannot just do something that simple with a Linux box. Linux is easier to repair items then Microsoft OS products.

I doubt formatting the drive would be necessary.

I think that was a rather facesious(sp) reply. reformatting is always an extreme solution to a computer problem.

Um......isn't port 80 the standard internet traffic port? if you can surf it's not being blocked.

Out goign wont be blocked incoming could very wel be blocked by his isp.
So his isp could block incoming port 80 and it would not effect his web browesing in the least

Why not try using something other than port 80? Just to rule it out as the problem.

Some ISPs filter port 80 to stop people from running servers.

I'd just bind it to :8080 or something else.

aight thanx everyone for all the posts, u've been a lot of help, i reinstalled apache and reconfigured it over again. it works now. also stupid isp (cable) for some unknown reason changed my ip. that also affected it.
btw this problem occured on windows xp. even tho i'm dual booting mandrake linux, the server at mandrake was unaffected. thats a mistery i will never solve. but anyways, thanx again.

Uh sorry DrifterMaximus, but why is the ISP stupid because they are using Dynamic IP addressing? Sounds like you are partially violating Shaw Cable's TOS in trying to run a server off of their system.

Get some webspace with someone if you are wanting to host webpages, other wise you will not be able to do what you are doing.

some isps have also found a way to block in coming http get requests heh. Meaning they can block servers no matter what port you use.

If it's dynamic ip why not using dyndns.org or no-ip.org ?
However the name no-ip is a confusion as in principle it's used to just target your domain name to your dynamically changeable ip, so something like leaving a session on ftp and download something using this no-ip service and that hostname (bind to it and using it with ftp client) doesn't resolve dynamic ip problem as the other ftp server side looks sometimes for host ip and not for a hostname (revdns)...

Rergards,
