Unknown webserver listening on port 80

Posted on

QUESTION :

I was trying to install Apache, and I noticed it was forced to port 8080 because IIS was already using port 80. So I disabled the IIS service, and now there’s some other server that’s still using the same port. It contains no files, I can’t see any related services, and the only hint I have is this Server respose header:

Server: Microsoft-HTTPAPI/2.0

How can I get rid of this other server, or at least get it to move? I’ve never seen it on any other computers with the same setup.

ANSWER :

You may have Web Deployment Tool running.

Go to Control Panel > Security > Administrative Tools and disable it, or

net stop msdepsvc

cports is a very useful tool on Windows. It will list all programs and the port numbers used by the programs.
