Hi Caitlin,

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm fairly sure the answer to 
your question is "No". You should not need to configure your server 
to exit on port 80 in order to run a hidden service.

In any case, this should be fairly easy to test. Once you have your 
hidden service configured, set your server to NOT exit to port 80, 
and then try to access your hidden service through the Tor network.

Hope that helps.

Best regards,
