How to change port number for apache in WAMP

I am new to WAMP server and installed it on my system but after installing it when I check it by going to localhost url like this

in the browser it is not working. I am getting a 404 error and blank page.

This is because my 80 port which default in
Wamp server
is being used by IIS server. So please let me know how to change port number in Wamp server and solved this problem.

Answer Source

Click on the WAMP server icon and from the menu under Config Files select httpd.conf. A long text file will open up in notepad. In this file scroll down to the line that reads Port 80 and change this to read Port 8080, Save the file and close notepad. Once again click on the wamp server icon and select restart all services. One more change needs to be made before we are done. In Windows Explorer find the location where WAMP server was installed which is by Default C:\Wamp.

Update : On a newer version of WAMP, click the WAMP server icon > Apache > httpd.conf, then change the line Listen 80 to Listen 8080 or any port you want.
