localhost port reassignment?

Postby tyty1234 » 17. June 2009 09:17

I recently installed Skype, and found out that Skype uses Port 80, the same port Apache (HTTP) uses. So in Skype, I unchecked the port 80 as alternates, and now I check the portcheck.exe file, and it says that Apache (HTTP) Port 80 is free. What I would like to know is how do i re-assign Port 80 to Apache?

I am aware I can change the Listen directive in httpd.conf in the conf directory of apache, but that requires me to put the port number I choose after localhost, which is what I DO NOT want.

Have you changed the Apache config?
(With a default Apache config, Apache is allways using port 80.)

Hi

I found this

The solution is to first start Apache, then start Skype. If that case Skype will search for some other port for communication as Apache will already have captured port 80. Hope this help for anyone using Skype and XAMPP.
