Xampp With Custom Port Setup

Usually IIS will occupied port 80 for those ASP.NET developer or some other reason, other application had grab over the port e.g: Skype.

In this case, we might need to use different port for Apache web server.
Recommend to port 88, 8088, 8888 and so on ( 8 looks and feel goods for me )

What changes need to be done?

1. Get your httpd.conf, usually located inside apache installation and inner conf folder.

Example of my httpd.conf location and I am planning to use 8088 as my custom port:

2. Change the default Listen 80 to your custom port
# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the
# directive.
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses (
Listen 8088

3. Change Server Name with the correct port too.
# ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify itself.
# This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you specify
# it explicitly to prevent problems during startup.
# If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here.
ServerName localhost:8088

4. Restart Apache server and you can browser with http://localhost:8088/

Incase you have problem to check your port, you can always run this application bundle with XAMPP named: xampp-portcheck.exe

It will shown you which port are occupied by which programs.

In case your 443 port being use by IIS and you are not using SSL on IIS.
You can try to stop your IIS and start Apache before IIS.
Hope this help.
