Subject Re: [users@httpd] port 80 or port 8080
Date Sun, 14 Nov 2010 12:02:06 GMT
You can tell skype to use another port. (Somewhre onder settings,
alteast on linux and mac)
Then you can install httpd on port 80.

You can use other ports like 8080 but if you do this you will need to
include them in the URL.
