I have installed the latest version of XAMPP, 1.6.2.
I find that the "XAMPP Control Panel Application" cannot detect my changes in httpd.conf file.
Why I say so? Because I have changed the listen port from 80 to 8888. But the "XAMPP Control Panel Application" still showing "Apache started [Port 80]". After that, I test the apache using IE.
when I type http://locathost in IE, it can't open the page.
but when I type http://localhost:8888, it can open the page.
At first, I think this is a bug for the display in xampp control panel only, however, it is not.
I run my IIS on port 80, normally, it shouldn't crash the port 8888. But the fact is, it crash! It seems that the "XAMPP Control Panel Application" will detect if port 80 is free or not before it really start the apache, whatever what port I set, it must run the port 80 scan first.
Therefore, I must stop my IIS running, and start the apache, and start the IIS again. It seems very stupid, is there any solution?
