Port will not update

Postby DonVito186 » 01. April 2011 23:38

I have a problem with both XAMPP and Apache. I followed countless tutorials on how to change your port and how to tell it what web adress it needs to look for, but it wont work. I currently have the httpd.conf file with the port under 8080, and have my ports forwarded, and have a domain for my IP. Yet every single time i edit the port, with all services from XAMPP not running, and XAMPP not open, it will not go to the port i specified. It continues to stay on port 80. When i go into apache its self and edit the detail information, it still runs off port 80 and i cant run apache from XAMPP anylonger. I would need to reinstall XAMPP again and replace my documents.

Is there any kind of solution to this?

I've ran XAMPP on 3 diffrent systems with the same results. I've ran it on Windows 7 64-bit and 32-bit. I've also ran it on Windows XP Pro 32-bit SP3, and no diffrence between each system.

Thanks in advance.

What stays on port 80 - are you talking about the XAMPP Control Panel?

What happens when you change the Listen directive in the httpd.conf file to Listen 8080 and then go to http://localhost:8080 in your browser?
