Apache server is the most popular web server on the internet because of its flexibility, stability and features it serve.
By default, Apache web server listens to incoming connection and bind with port 80 and port 443 for the secured TLS connections. Every IT person knows this and that’s great. But the thing is, the hackers even know about the same. And, sadly your Apache web server is vulnerable to port 80 attacks.
What if you want to secure your Apache web server by changing the port to non-standard one?
