Question for the pros!....

I am new to using Caddy Web Server and when I try to start the Caddy server, it shows me this error message, does anyone know how to fix it?

listen tcp :80: bind: An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions.

That error means there's already something listening on that port (80), most likely another web server.

Are you running another instance of Caddy already? An NGINX server? You didn't mention what OS you're using; if it's Windows, do you have IIS installed / running? You can press the Start Button and start typing IIS to get the IIS Manager where you can stop it from running in the box at the right.

Other than that, you can grab an 'open ports' type of app, like Nirsoft's Currports to see which program is listening on port 80.

it was IIS! Thank you. I guess it just starts all on it's own when I start Windows, is there a way to stop that?

IIS runs as a Windows Service that you can toggle. Have a look at this thread. How to Stop IIS from Starting with Windows
