xampp tomcat

When I look at the xampp control panel I see the following error:

20:12:53  [Tomcat]       Problem detected!
20:12:53  [Tomcat]       Port 8080 in use by ""C:\Program Files (x86)\PostgreSQL\EnterpriseDB-ApachePHP\apache\bin\httpd.exe" -k runservice"!
20:12:53  [Tomcat]       Tomcat WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
20:12:53  [Tomcat]       You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
20:12:53  [Tomcat]       or reconfigure Tomcat and the Control Panel to listen on a different port

 I have already configured Tomcat to run on different ports - see attached server.xml file
So why the error message
Can someone please explain what is going on here
Thhis is running on Windows

You might want to change the apache port from httpd.conf

Thanks for that - I just realised that I was looking at the incorrect conf file
I tried to change the listening port to 890 (which is unused at present) and restarted the postgre service but I now get a page not displayed for the following:


Postgre conf file which was changed:
C:\Program Files (x86)\PostgreSQL\EnterpriseDB-ApachePHP\apache\conf\httpd.conf

I changed the reference in the following places:
Listen 890
ServerName localhost:890

I am now really confused:

I open the following file:
C:\Program Files (x86)\PostgreSQL\EnterpriseDB-ApachePHP\apache\conf\httpd.conf

If I change the  following ports or even disable them:
Listen 8080
ServerName localhost:8080

The following still works even after doing the above and restarting the postgre services (and emptying web caches):

Where is the postgre server getting it's port info from ??????
