    changing port

    substring Newbie

      Hello All,

      Can someone please tell me how to change the port number for JBoss? When I installed Oracle 9i, it took the port 8080. Therefore, I have to use a different port for JBoss.

      I have gone thru the folder where I unzipped JBoss to (i.e. C:\jboss-3.2.1_tomcat-4.1.24), and I can't find anywhere that I can change the port number.

      I am quite new to these and any help will be very much appreciated.

            I am using "jboss-3.0.6_tomcat-4.1.18" and had the same problem. Oracle 9i server had occupied port 8080 and JBoss (tomcat in fact) was trying to listen on the same port and could not.

            Well, after wondering here and there - changing this .xml file and that .xml file, I finally foud the one that solved my problem:

            In the "...\server\default\deploy" directory, I found a file called "tomcat41-service.xml". I updated this file and replaced 8080 with another number - say - 8181, restarted JBoss - IT WORKED!

            I am not sure if this is THE right way to configure JBoss to listen on a different port rather than on default (8080), but it worked for me.

            If this is not the right way, I'd much appreciate feedback.
