Changing the default port

  • I have a Tomcat/Dim Dim newbie question...

    I hosting an email server on my home network and have port 80 directing to my exchnage servers owa so I can access my email via the web. I want to setup dim dim so that tomcat will run on another port. I am very good with windows and IIS but not so much with tomcat.

    I am running Windows 2003 server with a default install of dim dim using tomcat to serve. How can I chnage this web server app to use a different port, like 8080 or something? Thanks.

    • I saw somewhere in the documentation that when you specify the URL that clients see, during the installation, that you could specify a different port there.  Unfortunately, I tried it on the Open Source version and it does NOT appear to work.  All the components continue to try to setup for port 80.

        Well you can change the default port for TOMCAT in the conf folder and open the server.xml search a word like this "https coyote default port 8080"

        Change the port for example:

        Connector port ="8090"

        Afther that change the port in the dimdim.propeties file  to the same port that you change in server.xml of tomcat server:
