apache administartion

I changed apache listening port from 80 to 8088 in httpd.conf file.
And then,I pressed admin... button and my IE explorer navigated me to URL "http://localhost/" even it should be "http://localhost:8088".

Does xampp read the config file of apache server before it navigetes me to perform administration jobs?

I think xampp should notice the changes by itself.

Please do not cross post as this is deemed to be bad forum etiquette, especially cross posting to a forum that is not in the language of your post - German language forum.
Thanks.

Did you save the httpd.conf file and then restart Apache to have the changes you made recognized?

Also it is not enough just to change the listening port setting.

Look for any other instance of :80 in the httpd.conf file and change it to :8080
for example and obviously very important:
ServerName localhost:80
to
ServerName localhost:8080

Your address will now be http://localhost:8080 and this should also be recognized by the Control Panel's Admin... link.

If not then use another Control Panel like the one at DTX.

Read the Readme file link from the above site and it will give full instructions how to use alternative porting in XAMPP.

Please post again with any feedback if you use the DTX-Launcher.
Thanks.
