    Hi i have just installed xampp but when i tried to run it it says there is already a service running on port 80

    when i run netstat -tulpn | grep :80 it shows a service running httpd but its not apache2 as i havent installed it

    what else could it be ? and how can i remove it??

    many thanks

    Does netstat give you the 'PID/Program name' or just a dash (if just a dash run it as root).

    Then using top see what the PID is for, e.g. for a PID of 26336:
    top -b -n 1 -p26336 -c
    or look at /proc/<PID>/cmdline:
    cat /proc/26336/cmdline; echo
