    Default Port 80 is already in use

    When running alpha6 locally, I try to start the web application server and get the following message:
    The server cannot be started. Port 80 is already in use. Make sure no other server software is configured to use this port and try again.

    you probably have some other product that is using port 80. just configure a5 to use a different port. say 81.

    go to the control panel. tools menu. web application server. the dialog will allow you to set the port.
