Warning: expect a follow up question, or at least a thank you for fixing me.
At best, I'm a novice but capable, just ask and you shall recieve answers to any questions you might have.
Good luck with helping me.
I found the httpd.conf file and changed the listen 80 and the ServerName localhost:80 setting.
I have gone back and forth between both settings and tried every combo using port number 1111.
Despite the xampp control panel saying apache is always running on port 80 it worked normally on 1111I have a joomla folder that works fine on 1111
However, mybboard was placed in the default htdocs folder and worked fine until I changed to 1111.
I can access the localhost:1111/admin (for the board) but it wont keep any settings changes to the board and it keeps asking for a login after each nav. (i suspect a permissions issue)
I went into the board and changed a setting telling it what the new url is now. ie http://name.com:1111
It still doesnt work and now I can't change the board setting back to normal port 80 ie http://name.com
What went wrong, can we fix it or should I plan a new install of the whole thing from xampp to mybboard ?
I find the xampp, apache, mysql, php thing is awsome as it has done what I have failed to do time after time,
The relationships between content manager, php and mysql is still my biggest challenge.
Thank you for reading.
BTW I posted somthing simliar to this at the mybboard help forum, but so far they have nothing.
