Modifying Application Ports

By default, Cascade Server will attempt to listen on port 8080. If another application is already listening on this port, administrators may wish to change it so that there are no port conflicts on the system. To change ports, follow the steps below:

  • Shut down Cascade Server
  • Navigate to \tomcat\conf
  • Edit the file server.xml
  • Locate the HTTP/1.1 Connector:

<Connector port="8080" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" ../>

  • Change the port attribute (default is 8080) and save the file
  • Restart Cascade Server

NOTE: While running multiple instances on one machine is discouraged (do not ever run multiple instances on a production machine!), it is possible to do so if the HTTP and Shutdown ports are modified to prevent the instances from interfering with one another. In addition to modifying the HTTP port (as mentioned above), administrators must also modify the shutdown port:

  • Edit the file /tomcat/conf/server.xml
  • Change the port attribute around line 20 (default is 8005):

<Server port="8005" shutdown="SHUTDOWN">

  • Save the file
  • Restart Cascade Server
