Changing the port numbers for the application server
If you do not want to use the default port numbers for the application servers, you can change them.
Before you begin
You must be able to stop and start the application server.
For WebSphere® Application Server, you must be an application server administrator and have access to the Integrated Solutions Console.
About this task
This must be done before setting the Public URI (that includes the port number) of your applications; after you have set the Public URI of your applications, you cannot change the Public URI. For more information, see Planning your URIs. If you must change the port number while also maintaining URL stability, consider using a reverse proxy to route requests using the old port number to the appropriate new location; for more information, see Reverse proxy servers in topologies.
- Stop the application server.
- In a text editor, open JazzInstallDir/server/liberty/servers/clm/server.xml.
Note: In a fresh installation the JazzInstallDir/server/liberty/servers/clm/server.xml does not exist. It is created the first time you start the server. It can also be created by running the following command:
cd JazzInstallDir/server ./server.startup -create
cd JazzInstallDir\server server.startup.bat -create
- Search for the
<httpEndpoint>element and change the
httpsPortaccordingly.The default looks like this:
<httpEndpoint id="defaultHttpEndpoint" host="*" httpPort="9080" httpsPort="9443" />
- Save the server.xml file.
