Changing the default port

  • Shut down Cascade CMS
  • 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 CMS

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 (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 CMS
