How to change WAMP server port number windows 7

Port Issue WAMP Server Offline

It is always good to know which port is used by wamp server.

Apache>Service>Test Port 80

If you get the message “Your port 80 is not actually used” then port 80 is free.  If the port used by some other program then change the wamp server port number.

To change the port on WAMP server:

  • Go to d:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.2.11\conf
  • Open httpd.conf file
  • Search for Listen 80
  • Change the line “Listen 80” to “Listen 8080” (or Listen You can use any no)
  • Save the file and close it
  • Then open http://localhost:8080/ , next to the localhost place the port no you changed in the httpd.conf file
