OK, I need to run Apache on a different port number, on a CPanel server. I simply need the port 80 available for something else so that's the reason I first need to move Apache from port 80 to say, port 81. I tried changing the "port" and "listen" values in the httpd.conf but then Apache refused to start. It may have something to do with the specific CPanel setup but that's just a guess.

My server runs CentOS 4.4 i686 and the newest stable version of WHM/CPanel.

Any ideas how to accomplish this?
