Nginx doesnt work on windows 10, Port 80 in use

JUNE 5TH 2016

I ran into a problem where nginx did not work on windows 10. Turns out port 80 was in use. Here's how I fixed it.

Oh wow
follow me — @malcolmtyson
Open up a command prompt as a admin
Run net stop WAS -- then type Y
If you use skype go to Tools / Options / Advanced / Connection and uncheck "Use Port 80 and 443 for additional incoming connections"
Open a command prompt
cd into your nginx directory; then do start nginx
Go make yourself a sandwich, you are all done.
