changing Apache port


After searching the forums, I found that I am supposed to change the line in httpd.conf that reads
Port <number>

Well, I went into httpd.conf, and found

"<IfDefine !APACHEPROXIED>
Port 80
Listen 80
</IfDefine>
<IfDefine APACHEPROXIED>
Port 8080
Listen 8080
</IfDefine>"

I changed the above to

<IfDefine !APACHEPROXIED>
Port 81
Listen 81
</IfDefine>
<IfDefine APACHEPROXIED>
Port 81
Listen 81
</IfDefine>

I ran "/usr/sbin/apachectl restart" and "/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart"

I can connect to my server by typing localhost, but if I try localhost:81, it says,

"Could not conenct to host localhost (port 81)"

You don't have to tell me how to do it, just a little advice is all I am looking for.

Try this

"<IfDefine !APACHEPROXIED>
Port 80
Listen 80
Listen 81
</IfDefine>
<IfDefine APACHEPROXIED>
Port 8080
Listen 8080
</IfDefine>"

Regards,
Peter

Nope, that didn't do it. Is there some special procedure that I have to follow? I ran a netstat and port 81 didn't even show up.

Do I have to .configure apache?

Try the 2 Listen Directives by themselves, just before those <IfDefine > ones...
(Then, of course, restart httpd.)

Did you try a complete stop and start (as opposed to simple restart)? I've noticed that some of my directive changes don't take affect when just a restart is done.

I completely stopped httpd and then edited the httpd.conf so that references to port 80 were commented:

.....
# BindAddress *

Port 81
Listen 81

<IfDefine !APACHEPROXIED>
# Port 80
# Listen 80

Port 81
Listen 81
</IfDefine>

.....

Then I started httpd and looked at netconf. It says its listening on port 81. However, trying to connect to localhost:81 yields the can't connect to host error. Netstat shows port 80 but not 81.
