Change port?

Postby weez1414 » 18. October 2011 00:07

Pretty basic question...<I'm new>

I downloaded Bitnami for another project. And I recently went to start up XAMPP and it won't connect. I googled the problem, and it was suggested that the Bitnami is likely using the same port.

Would this be the case? And if so, how do I change the port for XAMPP?

Thanks in advance, much appreciated.

Best to try and change the port in Bitnami if possible and if that is the cause of the conflict (the Bitnami forums may help with this) as a web server, like Apache in XAMPP, default is always port 80 and port 443.

As far as I can tell the Apache2 in Bitnami listens on port 8080 by default unless you have changef this already..

Or start Apache and MySQL manually before starting Bitnami if that is possible the Bitnami may use other ports - works with Skype using this method.

If you have any ticks in the Svc boxes in the Control Panel then best remove them to uninstall their respective Windows services as starting XAMPP components at every boot may not be desirable and could help to compound your starting issues - best starting manually from the Control panel when you suspect conflicts.

If the above is not to your liking then open the httpd.conf found in the apache\conf folder and change the listening port also you may have to change the https listening port in the apache\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf to say 4433 for every instance of port 443 you find.

Make copy of any configuration file before editing, then save any edited files and restart Apache.
