Thanks for your reply.

I had already browsed intensely around the Net before initiating this tread, but this morning I did come around the following solution:

Step 1 - From XAMPP Control Panel, under Apache, click the Config button, and select the Apache (httpd.conf).

Inside the httpd.conf file, find the line that says:
Listen 80
And change the 80 into any number / port you want, for example 8080.
Listen 8080
Still from the httpd.conf file, there is another line that says:
ServerName localhost:80

And change 80 to 8080.

ServerName localhost:8080

Step 2 - From XAMPP Control Panel, under Apache, click the Config button again, but this time select the Apache (httpd-ssl.conf). Inside the httpd-ssl.conf file, find line that says
Listen 443
And change the 443 into any number / port you want. Foe example 4433 as the new port number.
Listen 4433
Still from the httpd-ssl.conf file, find another line that says
<VirtualHost _default_:443>

ServerName localhost:443
And change 443 to 4433.
<VirtualHost _default_:4433>

ServerName localhost:4433

Remember to save httpd.conf file and httpd-ssl.conf after you make some changes. Then restart the Apache service.

XAMPP (Apache) is now running fine.
