Both MAMP and XAMPP default to port 80 for apache. Similar things happen with Skype, as Skype defaults to port 80 as well.

You have change either MAMP or XAMPP to use a different port. You can't have both trying to use port 80, thus the error it's giving you. You could try changing one of them to run on port 8080, 8000, etc it doesn't really matter. It could be port 3458, as long as the port is open. It's common to use port 8080 or 8000 as that's usually a safe bet.

It begs the question though, why do you have XAMPP and MAMP installed, and why are you trying to run them at the same time? They do the exact same thing, there is really no reason to have them both.

Hello. Ok I will use only MAMP. I didn't know that I need only one of them. Thanks.
