Because i'm using windows XP, on my own OS i run IIS (in port 80). I need change port of apache as 8080. I've been change port for apache in httpd.conf (80 -> 8080), but when i run xampp-control.exe, start apache not run. Screen message:

Apache started [Port 80]

I don't understand :shock: ,when i've been change 8080, apache not change. :evil:

I guess you changed ServerName xxx:80 to ServerName xxx:8080, correct? In this case you should change the correct setting, which is named Listen.

Actually this is just a bug in the control applet.

I fixed this in the version here:


Set the Apache port in XAMPP.INI.

NB this doesn't change the port Apache listens on, but it does fix a few things in the control applet.
