    Apache Port (80) Error


    I am a totally new programmer. I bought the Simply Rails 2 book from Sitepoint and am trying to build Shovell. Every time I try to launch the InstantRails.exe app, I get an error message stating that the "Apache Port (80) is used by "" inetinfo.exe". Instant Rails boots up anyway after I click the "ok" button and seems to be working, but I am wondering if this is going to cause problems later or what I should do about it.

    I have attached a screenshot of this problem.

    Also, I am wondering what I should do when I have a typing error in the Ruby Console Window. Many times I will be trying to type code out of the book will hit enter and then realize I have made an error. Should I just retype the command or do I need to exit (hit CTRL+D), type ".quit"?

    I am a total beginner so I apologize if these seem like stupid questions.

    Thanks so much for the help!
