Changing default port 80

Postby tputhusserry » Mon Oct 05, 2015 7:24 am

I am a new user of the Netspectrum Ubuntu 14.04 desktop instance. I need to install Apache2 and make port 80 as the default one, however this port is already in use by Netspectrum. How do I change Netspectrum to use another port (say 81) ?

I'm sorry that the BB did not send out email alert on pending messages and caused the delay. Here is the answer which I already replied to you over email, but I'll post it here just for the record. Thanks again.


Suppose you like to change the port to 8080, run the following command after you log into the machine

> sed -i -e "s#80 localhost:#8080 localhost:#" /opt/netspectrum/aws/ubuntu-desktop/bin/
> sudo reboot

Of course you need to make sure port 8080 is open for access. By default only TCP ports 22, 80, 443, 5900~5920 are open for outside access.
