Subject Re: port 80 !!?? Running !
Date Tue, 30 Apr 2002 08:53:06 GMT
Tevfik , I have mine running on port 80, I just grepped Server.xml and 
changed the port number from 8080 to 80 no the non ssl http config. It 
only needs to be changed in one spot.
I just ran apachectl stop the startup.sh and everything is fine.
