I have my Joomla website up and running, it's running on php port 80, now I want to change that port.

So I want to know whether it will affect in any way my existing Joomla website, or not?

A port change is transparent at Joomla level. You can change it without affecting your Joomla site

Most probably you have Joomla installed on XAMPP server in your local machine which is using port 80. Changing that port would not affect Joomla! website. See here. Also you can easily change Skype to use different port if that is your problem.

  • on local machine the port change won't affect anything, but i want to know on server side will it affect the existing website..? Commented Jun 8, 2015 at 4:43
  • Since your server is working normally, your site will be OK also.
