Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

service runs on port 80, even when httpd.conf says 8080

I want to run both IIS7 and XAMPP Apache on a Win7 OS. To make both work parallell I have changed the httpd.conf to port 8080.

Listen 8080
ServerName localhost:8080

If I run Apache manually i get it to run on port 8080 like expected, but if I run it as a service it runs on port 80 and it appears it does not look in the http.conf for the right port. Any idéa how I could run Apache as a service on port 8080? That would be my prefered configuration…

Thanks!

Ok. I think I figured this one out myself. I installed XAMPP in the "C:\Program Files" folder, and it seems that make Windows interfer a bit to much. When I changed it to the default C:\xampp it works well.
