Configure Apache to listen multiple ports

The listen directive in the Apache configuration file can be used to make Apache to listen in a particular port or IP address or port combination.

Listen 80
Listen 8000

In this format the Apache server listens on the given ports on all interfaces (IP addresses) which are up in the server. If you mention the above two directives in the Apache configuration file then the Apache server will listen on both the ports 80 and 8000. Multiple Listen directives may be used to specify a number of addresses and ports to listen to.

Listen IP:80

You need to replace the IP address in this example with the IP address you want the Apache service to listen. In this format an IP address is given as well as a port. In this case the server will listen on the given port and interface( IP address ). If you want the Apache service to listen on two IP addresses in the server you can use multiple listen directive in the configuration file.

Listen IP1:80
Listen IP2:80

Please remember to restart the Apache service in the server once the changes are made to the configuration file.
