Port 80/443 Used Already -- What Do I Do?

Postby Critical Compound » 28. March 2008 16:54

Hey guys.

The title pretty much says it all. My system is already currently using ports 80/443, therefore I cannot get Apache Web Service to run.

Any ideas on how I can get Apache to point to a different port that will work with the service?


P.S. -- Picture of the port check:

I am noob, so probably I wont say anything useful to you, but I figure the only port you can use for web server is port 80, if you use another one, the browsers wont find the server...

But, the big question is: Have you tested if apache is working? I mean, maybe it is showing apache running as system service... put an index.html file and try http://localhost and see if you can see the page... or put a txt file and try http://localhost/filename.txt and the browser should show you the txt file...

You may want to pop up your Command Prompt (CMD) and type "netstat -ab". Tap enter, and you'll see a list of applications/processes and what port they use.

Simply take down the application/pros. and you should be ready to go! Note, be sure to schek what the thingy is you're going to 'end', you might never know you'd need it!

While searching the forum to find an answer to my problem, I found something about changing the ports using dtx controller...
