Modifying Application Ports

Changing the default port

  1. Shut down Cascade CMS.
  2. Edit the /tomcat/conf/server.xml file.
  3. Locate the HTTP/1.1 Connector:
    <Connector port="8080" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" ../>
  4. Change the port attribute (the default is 8080) and save the file.
  5. Restart Cascade CMS.
  6. Repeat the same steps for any other Connector used within the configuration (e.g. SSL and.or AJP).

Multiple instances of Cascade CMS

While running multiple instances on one machine is discouraged, it is possible to do so if the HTTP and shutdown ports are modified to prevent the instances from interfering with one another.

Warning: Running multiple environments on a production machine is not supported.
In addition to modifying the HTTP port (as mentioned above), administrators must also modify the shutdown port:
  1. Edit the /tomcat/conf/server.xml file.
  2. Change the port attribute (the default is 8005): <Server port="8005" shutdown="SHUTDOWN">
  3. Save the file.
  4. Restart Cascade CMS.
