Subject Re: [users@httpd] Port Number and Aldephia user?
Date Fri, 03 Jan 2003 20:39:21 GMT
I'm not using Adelphia.

To answer your other question...
You can use any port not already in use.

It is best to pick something over 1024 because it probably won't
be in use by anything else.

8080 is used simply because its easy to remember.
In fact, if you install apache with a non root account
it will default to 8080.
