WAMP is a windows web development environment that allows you to create web applications with Apache , Php Mysql. (Windows – Apache – Php – Mysql ). You can install it after you download a compatible file from http://www.wampserver.com/en/ . Wamp is very easy to install and takes about an avarage of 5 minutes to complete depending on your computer’s hardware configuration. If there is an IIS (internet information server) or another application using port 80 already installed, wamp server won’t start apache server after installation. To solve this problem you can change the port used by Apache Server.
How can I change Apache Port in WAMP?
To do this, open http.conf file in wamp directory with text editor. (C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.4.9\conf\httpd.conf this is my directory path, your path may be a little different). And change Listen 0.0.0.0:80 , Listen [::0]:80 lines to Listen 0.0.0.0:8888, Listen [::0]:8888. Then click “restart all services” button on Wamp Server tryicon menu. That’s all.
You can test new port with the following Url : http://localhost:8888/
