I'm a newbie to xampp and apache and I'm starting to build a website for my personal use. The problem is that I'm currently connected to the university network at my graduate school and they do not allow me to run webservers on their network. I just need to run xampp to test my website before putting it live on a third party host. I emailed them about this and they said as long as I'm using a private port for my apache web server( so that outsiders can't get into the network through my webserve ), I will be fine. So, now I need to know how I can run xampp (apache) on a private port, not on port 80. How do I do that? Please let me know. Also, if I do that, will I be able to test my website properly before putting it live on my host server?
Thanks in advance.
