My Oracle 10G XE is on port 8080. Can I change the port?

If you have port conflict and you want to change Oracle 10G XE’s HTTP port (default is 8080) you can change it.

This is what you do in the Windows XP machine.

Make sure OracleServiceXE and OracleXETNSListener have started in the Control Panel.

From Start | Run open a command window.
Assuming your environmental variables are set correctly start with the following: (Reds are what you type-in and blues are what the computer writes to screen)
