How would I change the port to 80? This is my config so far:
Not a good idea. restrict this to your local network, which would generally be 192.168.x.0/24 (255.255.255.0)
set rpcport to a value higher than 1024. You may have an application already bound to port 80 (Personal Web Server, or IIS.)
To run the server, do I run litecoin-qt.exe? or do I have to run litecoind? Finally can people connect to me with cpuminer?
I've used the above config and even when litecoin-qt gui is running, cpuminer can't connect. Secondly, running litecoind, I just get a black screen that closes by itself after a few seconds.
check the db.log and debug.log to find out why. These are located in %appdata%\litecoin.
