The following is from the Apache install instructions. It must
therefore be possible to get Apache to listen to port 8080. I did the
set up as indicated.

Brian

For whom to install Apache Select for All Users, on Port 80, as a
Service - Recommended if you'd like your new Apache to listen at port
80 for incoming traffic. It will run as a service (that is, Apache
will run even if no one is logged in on the server at the moment)
Select only for the Current User, on Port 8080, when started Manually
if you'd like to install Apache for your personal experimenting or if
you already have another WWW server running on port 80.
