    Hello Dear All,

    I have changed httpd.conf to i\listen to port 70

    Listen 70

    Now to access localhost we need to put Open Source and Linux Forums

    Is is possible to access localhost with Open Source and Linux Forums instead?


    When we use Listen 80 we were able to access localhost by Open Source and Linux Forums itself.


    Plz help.

    The default HTTP port is port 80, so when you visit http://localhost in your browser it is silently translated to http://localhost:80 as everything needs to know which port to use. Once you move away from using the default port, you must always tell everything where to find it.
