Is it possible to use the standard http/ssh ports on stash?

I would like to use the standard http / ssh ports on Stash, but from what I've been able to read in the docs, a port above 1024 is required for ssh. It looks like I could use port 80/443 for http/https, but I don't see an option for using port 22 for ssh.

In order for Stash to run bind to port 80/443 for HTTP and 22 for SSH, it would have to run as the root user. This is highly discouraged and in the case of SSH hosting not supported at all for this very reason.

You can still access Stash on these ports by using port forwarding.

For SSH you can find details at

For HTTP we have details on how to set up a Apache proxy at

Yes, you can install frontent (Apache or Nginx) to proxy 80/443 to 7990 port. And also you can use haproxy for forward 22 port to 7999 port.

See prepared Debian package, it make it automatically:

Hi David,

As Alexey mentioned, you can use HAProxy to forward port 22. See Stash's SSH documentation for more details:



It looks like I'll have to bite the bullet and do port forwarding. Thanks for the replies.

A question regarding the port forwarding solution...

The machine that runs my Stash installation also runs other services e.g. Jira and some others.

I administer the machine by ssh-ing to it with Putty through port 22.

If I implement the forwarding of port 22 to 7999, won't I lose the possibility to access the machine via Putty??

Hi mathlaslarsson73,

Yes that's right. If you intend to do that could simply rebind port 22 for the real SSH to another port. Ideally Stash could hook into a specific user (ie git) via OpenSSL, but that isn't on our radar at the moment.
