I want to run an apache server and I watched a video tutorial to do so that says to move port forward port 80 to run it properly. I have tried doing so but in vain. I get locked out of my router and then I have to restart it. The router I am using is FiOS Actiontec SFU Model MI424WR-Gen2. Pls tell me how to solve this issue.

Run apache server but cannot move forward port 80

Hello There,

Once you start Apache (either in console or as service) it will use port 80 (unless we change configuration files or install Apache only for current user).

Now launch a browser and put

http://localhost/

Apache responds with welcome. If nothing happens or some error appears then look in the error.log file under the logs subdirectory. If your host is offline or there is some DNS issue, you may have to use this URL:

http://127.0.0.1/

If you need to run Apache on separate port put-

http://127.0.0.1:8080/

Once basic installation is sine, we should configure it. Point to note, if we change configuration Windows service for Apache, first start it from command line.

As, Apache cannot use same port with other TCP/IP applications, we need to stop/ uninstall/ reconfigure other services before running Apache.

For example, other WWW servers, firewall implementations, and some client applications (example Skype) which uses port
