Is that the right way to set the port to 8080? It doesn't seem to be working. Any other ideas?
Yes, thats the correct setting.
Make sure you change the setting ServerName
too. It's in the same file.
A few more hints:
- After changing the Apache configuration files, you have to restart the Apache server. Otherwise the changes doesn't take effect.
- 8080 is the default port for the Apache Tomcat server. If you want to use this too, you have to find a different solution.
- Port 443 (default port for HTTPS/SSL) must be changed too. You can find its Listen setting in file \xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf

The monitoring for blocked ports must be changed too. In the new CPv3 you can simply configure the new ports to look at in it's configuration dialog.
