WSUS - Changed Port from 80 to 8080, now an error

I had WSUS running fine with the default configuration.  I wanted to use the same server as a web server also, but couldn't on the default port of 80 since WSUS was using it.  I changed WSUS to 8080 and it seems to be operating fine, all clients are reporting in.  I also updated our group policy to point to 8080 as well.  

Here is my only issue.  When I go to the WSUS admin page, now on port 8080, I get the error below:

###################################
Check your server configuration
One or more Update Service components could not be contacted. Check your server status and ensure that the Windows Server Update Service is running. Non-running services: SelfUpdate
###################################

Any ideas?

The SelfUpdate tree MUST be installed on port 80 regardless of whether you are running WSUS itself on port  80 / 8530 or whatever.

Sorry but that is true.  Sucks of course...

No, especially if it isn't through IIS.

I believe if it is IIS you can still have a SelfUpdate virtual directory on the default port 80 site though...but I'm not certain on that.

I've tried to do the same thing because I wanted to run ePolicy Orchestrator on the same box...didn't happen.  In the end I went with virtualizing the 2 "servers" on the same hardware just because of this.
