I tried to open a HTML page I had created and was given this message:
Starting Apache httpd, serving…
(98)Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:8080
(98)Address already in use: AH00072: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:8080
no listening sockets available, shutting down
AH00015: Unable to open logs
Background: I was attempting to use a python file using Flask on a page, attempting to open on port 8080. This was working fine but had suddenly stopped and gave an error message that the ports were blocked.
I attempted to fully close the Apache2 connection and re-open it, and the same error message. I have also ran netstat -a in the Windows command prompt and there appears to be nothing on port 8080.
