Skype doesn't let Apache Start!

We found any issue with Apache startup when Skype is up.

Skype by default uses port 80 and port 443 for incoming connections,

unfortunately we want the same ports used for Apache in general.

You can change the preferences of Skype to work on different port in the preferences,
(Tools -> Options)

and keep your Apache running on port 80 or 443.

Some references:

[Thanks for Puneeth to figure out about changing skype preference on port]
