server.port in has no effect

Trying to setup Bitbucket Server behind an IIS reverse proxy and running into some trouble. I've updated my file with "server.port=8443" per the instructions here:

But when I run start-bitbucket.bat to test, I see "starting server on port 7990."

Why is the server.port setting having no effect?


Bitbucket Server 6.2.0

Hi @Bob Rzadzki ,

first of all check if you're managing file in the correct path BITBUCKET_HOME_FOLDER/shared/ (read here)

Please verify that you correctly restarted the application. 

For a reverse proxy configuration I know that there are two different ports, one for the application and one for the reverse proxy.

Here an example of my current configuration :


Hope this helps,


Hi Fabio, thanks for your help.

The "find your home directory" link in the page you sent is dead, unfortunately. I am editing the file in the directory referred to in set-bitbucket-home.bat; that should be the right one, correct?

I tried the config you provided, with my proxy's hostname, and there's no change in the behavior.

Fabio, I had to iterate through some other options but it's working now. Thank you for your help, that got me on the right track.

I'm happy for that @Bob Rzadzki !
