    How to change port?

    Lisa Farley Newbie


      I was using jboss 3.2.3 without problem until I installed Oracle 9i. An Oracle service seems to be running on port 8080 in conflict. When I try to start up my jboss server I get a JVM Bind exception. I think the easiest way to resolve is to change my jboss port to a use a different one than 8080. I tried going ot the jboss_home_dir/server/default/deploy/jbossweb-tomcat41.sar/Meta_inf/jboss-service.xml file and changing the port to from 8080 to 80. However, when I start up my server I am getting the same error. Do I need to unpack and repack certain files? How do I do this correctly? Is there any other steps I am missing?

      Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

          hello Lisa

          just a shot in the dark.
          maybe you are running a webserver listening on port 80 on your box?

          try something like 18080

            hi lisa,

            oracle 9i has an http server installed running on port 80.

              Thanks for your help! When I started up my server the JVM Bind error was on port 8080. With your ideas I was able to do a bit more searching and found the problem. It turned out that I needed to update the service.xml file in the jboss-3.2.3\server\all\deploy\jbossweb-tomcat41.sar\META-INF folder instead of in the jboss-3.2.3\server\default\deploy\jbossweb-tomcat41.sar\META-INF folder. I'm new to jboss so I don't know if it's something we have in out environment setup here or if this would always be correct. It solved the problem and I'm using port 80.

              Have a good day.
