Does anybody know which port does Apache uses for its administration?

ummm...not sure what you are looking for.
Hope you agree that Apache runs on port 80 as
a web server by default. Looks like this is not
what you are looking for.
could you pl. elaborate...

I know that port 80 is on which Apache listens for all the request. But I wanted to know the port no for doing administartion work, like setting the properties which are used by an Apache administrator.

Hello
As far as I know , There is nothing as admin port , yeah I agree the same is there in java webserver and even on jrun.
But In case of apache web server u need to make changes in the conf file .

There's no admin port for apache. That's why it's supposed to be an "inferior" web server - the server is controlled by text config files and you restart the server when you change them (which isn't as awful as it seems - apache comes up quick).
Of course, not having a tcp/ip port and GUI config program also has meant one less possible hacker target...
