Change default Apache port

Postby superwad » 21. February 2008 22:34

I'm trying to set up Apache to start on a port other than the default port 80. I change the "Listen 80" line to "Listen 8080" and the "ServerName localhost:80" to "ServerName localhost:8080". I start Apache, and it still starts on port 80.

I'm using XAMPP on a USB key, so I can't always be sure that port 80 is available. I also can't stop existing services on some computers I may use.

Thank you

You can use this controller on a USB removable drive too.

... There is a fairly complete set of instructions in the readme both on the site and in the download zip ...
