Running WordPress as an Internet?

  • This is how I want to use WordPress with WAMP Server and I need to run it on a different port other than port 80.

    WAMP Server runs fine, but WordPress will not recognise this new port number. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Thanks Daniel.

    Nope. I use port 8080 to run about 4 or 5 local sites without the slightest problem. What site urls are you using?

    Sorry I meant Intranet no Internet. Does that shed any light on the problem?

    Thanks for your reply.

    Daniel.

    WAMP Server runs fine, but WordPress will not recognise this new port number.

    Where are you setting the port number? In the WAMP server or in the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) via http://your-intranet-wordpress-url/wp-admin/options-general.php?

    I have set the port number in the wp-config.php.

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

    when I look in options-general.php, it looks like garbage and when I searched in the file for localhost it wasn’t there. Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks Daniel

    I have set the port number in the wp-config.php.

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost:1024');

    Sorry its like this not my previous post. I am using port 1024 for Apache.

    Thanks Daniel

    Sigh. I should have checked your profile first.

    Daniel, please do not create multiple threads for the same topic. It makes it harder for us volunteers to support you when we have to jump all over the place.

    You’re not just discussing moving WordPress to another port you’re asking about moving Mysql and having WordPress use that mysql port instead.

    Please continue on your other topic, I’m closing this one.
