How do you change the listing port in apache?
Problem detected!
8:05:15 PM [Apache] Port 80 in use by "system"!
8:05:15 PM [Apache] Apache WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
8:05:15 PM [Apache] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
8:05:15 PM [Apache] or reconfigure Apache to listen on a different port

I will need to know how to reconfigure apache to a different port on windows 7.
