I would like to run my Apache server on port xxx rather then the default port 80. I have verified that my ISP blocks the following:
FTP - 21 Error: TimedOut
SMTP - 25 Error: TimedOut
HTTP - 80 Error: TimedOut
POP3 - 110 Error: TimedOut
IMAP - 143 Error: TimedOut
I have picked an alternate port and completed the following:
*configured my router to forward to my webserver's IP
* edited the httpd.conf to "listen" on the alternate port (example Listen 1234)
I can then start my apache successfully after my above modifications however I have noticed that clicking the admin button in the Xampp control panel yields a "Connection Interrupted" in firefox and seems to be trying to open http://www.localhost.com
If I type http://localhost:xxxx in the address bar it brings up the Xampp for windows "homepage". So this means to me that editing the httpd.conf file is not the end of my task.
I need to know what else I need to edit to complete the port change. Also at this point I have a clean install except that I have entered passwords and made the mod to the httpd.conf file (i saved the origional).
Thanks for any advice provided.
