Apache changing to random ports

Postby rjohnson1990 » 08. September 2012 20:31

I'm having a problem with Apache. It starts on ports 80 and 443. After a while, it changes ports. It currently says 01 and 51749

In short, that is normal.

Apache listens for and accepts requests on ports 80 and 443 but it does not service requests on those ports. When you or others connect to your servers, they will be handled by other connections usually using high ports. The control panel just looks for all ports associated with a module. It is just picking up those client ports and the box to show all the ports is just not big enough to show them all.
