The site is actually for a friend of mine and he only has Windows/ASP 
hosting at the moment but since he needed a CMS site to be able to 
update the page himself I thought about using a free CMS and started 
playing with Apache/PHP CMSs....
I just wanted to show him what it can become and he will eventually 
change to Apache/PHP hosting but he can't just take the current site 
down or put an unfinished site online.....
How would I go about changing the port ?

Thanks again,
