Apache Reference: http_core, Port
Canonical Port Number
Syntax: Port A
Example: Port 8080
Since: Apache 1.0
This directive configures the canonical port of the server (in addition to the ServerName directive, which configures the canonical host name). A Port setting never affects the ports on which a <VirtualHost> actually responds; the <VirtualHost> and Listen directives are used for that purpose. The number argument is a numerical value ranging from
65535. The standard port for the HTTP protocol is
80. All ports numbered below 1024 are reserved for system use under UNIX. That is, regular (non-privileged) users cannot use them; instead, they can use only higher port numbers. To use such low-numbered ports, one must start the server from the ``root'' account.
