"Would it be ok to configure the "new" httpd to listen on port 8080? "

  Looks like a nice idea ! To this end, I edited "Listen 80" to
"Listen 8080" in httpd.conf, but then I got a more laconic and
surprising behavior :

$ sudo bin/apachectl -k restart
httpd not running, trying to start
$ sudo bin/apachectl -k start
httpd (pid 2823) already running

But when I type http://localhost or http://localhost:8080 in my
browser, I still get the 403:Forbidden
If I type in my browser (because of the line
ServerName in my httpd.conf), it gets stuck (the
loading takes forever, and the browser eventually gives up with a "too
long to respond" message).
