Subject Re: [PATCH] Remove Port from httpd.conf
Date Sat, 08 Mar 2003 19:23:21 GMT
IIUC, we still require Port for any non-standard listeners to create the correct
server name (e.g. http://ServerName:Port/{redirect}) references.

If this is not true, then I agree, remove it.  But do we now pick up the Port
from the ServerName directive in 1.3?

If they can follow the Apache 2 conventions, it makes migration easier, so
if my fears are unfounded, +1.
