Question

When I change the Port Number, I lose Access To My Site?

Good morning. I am following this guide: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-configure-nginx-as-a-web-server-and-reverse-proxy-for-apache-on-one-ubuntu-16-04-server. I am stuck on Steps 2/3. In step 2, whenever I try to change my port from 80 to 8080, I lose access to my server. Apache is supposed to be able to listen to the port 8080, but for whatever reason it does not and and it makes it so I can not access my webpage.

I also allowed the new ports through my apache firewall and they still don’t work.
