Similar to changing localhost parameters, how do I serve web pages externally through a port other than port 80?

Also similar to configuring Apache to listen to an alternate port.

Of course, the navigation should keep to the specified port and not revert to port 80.

  • Have you tried changing the site URL to add a port number? I assume you've already adjusted your web server so that pages are served on that port? – Tom J Nowell May 8 '18 at 19:45
  • This is done by configuring your web server to use another port to serve up the pages. And not a WP development question, which will probably earn you a downvote (by others). Better to search this question on the Webmasters stack: webmasters.stackexchange.com – Rick Hellewell May 8 '18 at 19:52
  • @TomJNowell I haven't set this up yet, so asking before I dive in. – Thufir May 8 '18 at 20:29
  • @RickHellewell hmm, as I read the FAQ it relates to server configuration for WordPress does it not? – Thufir May 8 '18 at 20:30
  • Well, maybe @Thufir . But some people around here get excitable about any question that doesn't relate to "WP Development". Not me; I'll chime in on any question that I feel that I can answer if the question has anything to do with WP. But I won't be surprised if I see downvotes on the question... or holds. – Rick Hellewell May 8 '18 at 21:30
