What do you mean by "I am getting sorts of errors"??? Nobody get sorts of errors. Error messages are ALWAYS issued by certain products and or scripts. We still have NO idea, which software or script you are running, which gives you these error messages. It is definately impossible to help you any further, if you are not able to give a precise description of what you are doing there. Error messages dont fall from the sky or similar
P.S.: You *MUST NOT* change the port settings for Apache/MySQL. If you do so, you will NEVER succeed to install any foreign scripts (like wordpress or so). Instead you MUST find out, why Port 80 etc. are blocked and you MUST change these applications (or even stop or delete them), which are blocking these ports, as ALL these ports are standard ports for Apache and so on.
