I need to change the Apache's Port running under WAMP, because it is Clashing with the IIS, I tried to edit the httpd.conf and change the port 80 to some other port, but the WAMP seems to use the same port not matter what. :(

I am not being able to use the WAMP, without the Apache module running, both MYSQL and PHP are running but I cannot the register APACHE Service, unless it uses a free port.

Can you guys help me out?

It should be trivial: on the httpd.conf change the Listen 80 directive to other port, but looking at the forums seems to be a little more complicated than that. I suggest you to check the thread and see if you can get anything out of it.

Didn't you read my question, I have changed the port from httpd.conf, but no matter what, Wamp server uses the same port. – Starx Sep 11 '10 at 5:08
I read, and suggested that if you already changed the port you should read that thread and make sense of what they say there. – coredump Sep 11 '10 at 14:07
