Every time I need to figure out what process stole port 80 from my local server I have to look up the command again, so I’m going to share it here for my fellow windows users in hopes I’ll finally remember it :)

From a command shell running as admin:

netstat -anob

Thanks as usual to stackoverflow, where the collective memory of nerds lives.

And here’s another fun fact for windows users: Skype may well be the process that’s hogging port 80. It uses ports 80 and 443 by default because they’re usually not blocked by firewalls and hey, it’s not like developers use IM >:(
