By default, when you install VMWare 8 Workstation and Apache 2 (or XAMPP), you can’t run these programs in same host. Both of them use port 443. So, when you have Apache 2 running, you can’t start VMWare 8 Workstation and vice versa. If you want to run both, you must tell one of them to not use port 443. In this post, I tell you how to make Apache 2 so Apache 2 doesn’t use post 443.
Apache 2 Configuration
- Open your Apache 2 configuration directory (if you use XAMPP for Windows, the default directory C:\xampp\apache\conf)
- Open extra folder
- Edit httpd-sll.conf
- Find all 443 and replace with 4430 (or else)
- Restart Apache
Apache SLL module usually use port 433. By editing the Apache configuration, you can configure port usage. And now, SLL module use port 4430 (or else).
