changing the port number

I changed the port number where the Apache server listens to requests.

(default) " Listen : 80 ",
and I changed it as " Listen : 8080 "

But still Apache listens on port 80 only. Why is it so ? Do I need to restart the computer for change to be affective ? If not, then why is change not working ?

thanks

Yes. You should.

Are you talking about the Apache Web Server
or
Apache Tomcat?

They're two completely different products.

Vijitha: You´re wrong. You don´t need to restart the computer for that. That´s way too drastic. Just restart the server instance.

Ben: Looking at the setting name "Listen" and the default port number of 80, he´s talking about Apache HTTP Server.

Ooops. Sorry. Yes I mean the server instance though I didn't notice the "computer" part.
