xampp 1.8.3 ports

Postby rickeboii » 19. January 2014 12:17

Hello! I have a question. Is it possible to use port 8080 without 8080 in the ending of the domain? Like http://mydomain.com not http://mydomain.com:8080

Sorry for my bad english

Hi.

The answer is no. If you are using the http protocol the used port is defined by the official port 80 for this protocol.
If you want to use http with a different port, you have to add it to the domain.
Otherwise how should your browser know which service to request?

best wishes,

Strange question. Do you see an IP here:

http://mydomain.com:8080

The answer is still the same:
If you want to use HTTP and don't want to add any port to the domain, you MUST use port 80

It does not work, if 8047 is not applied in the URL. Port numbers must be specified in the URL, it is omitted, the browser takes port 80. You CANNOT use Port 8047 and omit it in the URL. Thats all.

Of course, but after forwarding (i.e. "forward" is not the right word for it, it is called "redirect"), so after redirecting the browser URL changes to mydomain.com:8080

If you forward to mydomain.com (only), then mydomain.com must run on port 80.
