localhost:8080 vs localhost

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

localhost:8080 vs localhost

Postby stman » 12. January 2016 02:15

As of now my xampp installation opens the index.html page using localhost:8080 (made the changes in config file from 80 to 8080). How can I make localhost/index.html work?

Thanks

change Apache to listen on port 80. Thats the only way.

Well how does the computer know localhost is port 80?
Is that coded into xampp or into Windows?

If no port is given in the URL it is defined by the used protocol.
If your URL starts with http:// port 80 is used, if it is https:// port 443 is used, ftp:// port 21, etc.

Port 80 is the default Port for protocoll http, thus http://localhost:80 is the same as http://localhost
