Hi
I am trying to run a DSL server from home. My ISP is blocking my port 80, so I need to change the default port number Xampp (apache). I was using apache (2.2.X)before and it was working( not xampp). Furthermore I was trying to change the Document root ( web files) from (C/xampp/…… to D). I was able to do this all in apache 2.2.X but not on XAMPP.
Help Please
Thank you

Why not in XAMPP (there is an error or somthing else?)?
--> part of XAMPP is a normal Apache 2.2.X. So must must do the same changes.

Well, this can't work. Port 443 is allready used for SSL (HTTPS).

Apache doesnt restart.

Why not?
