XAMPP: Another web server daemon with SSL is already running

Problem/Error:

XAMPP: Another web server daemon with SSL is already running - This is a peculiar error you will get sometimes when you run XAMPP in LINUX.
























Assumption:
XAMPP is unzipped @ /opt/ folder.

Reason:
There is another instance of the web server running in your preventing your new service to intiate.

Solution:
If you get the error "XAMPP: Another web server daemon with SSL is already running" when you run "./lampp start". Simply follow the steps below to get rid of this error:

  1. Open the file /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf
  2. Search the "Listen 80" and change it to some other port (e.g. Listen 2145)  (Line No. 40)
  3. Open the file /opt/lampp/etc/extra/httpd-ssl.conf
  4. Search the "Listen 443" and change it to some other port (e.g. Listen 16443) (Line No. 39)
  5. Open the file "/opt/lampp/lampp"
  6. Search for the port "testport 80" and replace it to "testport 2145". Also change the "testport 443" to "testport 16443". (Happens to be the Line No. 197, 214)
  7. Now go and run "/opt/lampp/lampp start". (It should work now).
