Solve Xampp not Starting Apache (Port Issue)

As I am working in a corporate where developers faces firewall issues, So for me none of above resolved my issue.

As the port is not used by Skype, but by some other internal applications So I followed below steps to resolve issue:

Step 1 - From XAMPP Control Panel, under Apache, click the Config button, and select the Apache (httpd.conf).

Inside the httpd.conf file, somehow I found line that says:

	Listen 80

And change the 80 into any number / port you want. In my scenario I’m using port 8080.

	Listen 8080

Still from the httpd.conf file, I found another line that says:

	ServerName localhost:80

And change 80 to 8080.

ServerName localhost:8080

Step 2 - From XAMPP Control Panel, under Apache, click the Config button again, but this time select the Apache (httpd-ssl.conf). Inside the httpd-ssl.conf file, find line that says

	Listen 443

And change the 443 into any number / port you want. I’ll using 4433 as the new port number.

	Listen 4433

Still from the httpd-ssl.conf file, find another line that says

	<VirtualHost _default_:443>

ServerName localhost:443

And change 443 to 4433.

	<VirtualHost _default_:4433>

ServerName localhost:4433

Remember to save httpd.conf file and httpd-ssl.conf after you make some changes. Then restart the Apache service.
