I'm running the slimp3 server on a dedicated box. there
are no other web servers running on this box. (why
should there be? it's a music server.)
yet the setup for the web interface thinks that port 80
is an invalid setting to run the http server on. I
couldn't find the "yes I really do know what I'm doing"
button either.
hacking the preferences file by hand verifies that it
can be made to run on port 80, but the interface still
whines about it everytime you go into server settings.

    The problem here is that using ports below 1025 on Unix
    systems requires root level access (at least during the time
    the port is opened). For this reason, the input validation
    for ports disallows port choices below 1025.

    Modifications to the prefs file outside the setup pages are
    not validated. As long as the setting isn't changed it
    shouldn't complain about it, so that could most likely be
    corrected.
