Change WAMP server default port:80

After some time, suddenly WAMP server is not working so I searched on the internet why it was happened? Finally I found because of the MS SQL Server installation, yes MS SQL server is using the port:80 because of that WAMP server couldn’t use this port:80. Then I decided to change default port:80 on WAMP Server.

Now I am going to explain how to change default port: 80 on WampServer to different one – for example: 7080.

First check your WAMP Server is running?

wamp server not working

Yes, it’s running but not working. So we need to change the port.

I installed apache version is 2.4.9, we need to find the installed location and config file.

In my laptop it was in below path

C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.4.9\conf

Now can see the files.

WAMP server conf files

Right click on the httpd.conf file and open it using Text Editor like Notepad++

WAMP server conf files

Look at the line 61 and you can see the IP address with port:80 now change that port as 7080

#Listen 12.34.56.78:7080

Listen 0.0.0.0:7080

Listen [::0]:7080

Save the httpd.conf file and restart your WAMP server.

Now your WAMP Server will work and enjoy t!
