XAMPP and VMWARE Workstation on Windows

copied from: http://edwardsamuel.wordpress.com/2012/06/27/port-conflict-vmware-8-workstation-vs-apache-2-xampp/




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.

Apache 2 Configuration
1) Open your Apache 2 configuration directory (if you use XAMPP for Windows, the default directory C:\xampp\apache\conf)

2) Open extra folder

3) Edit httpd-ssl.conf

4) Find all 443 and replace with 4431 (or else)

5) Restart Apache

Conclusion: Apache SSL module usually use port 433. By editing the Apache configuration, you can configure port usage. And now, SSL module use port 4431 (or else).
