How do I modify the jdbc connection string for Confluence 4.2?

We are modifying our postgresql server to listen on port 5433 instead of port 5432, so I need to update the jdbc connection string that confluence uses to connect to our database. Where/How do I do this? Is it the web app's administration interface or just a config file somewhere? The docs only seem to cover this when using the installation wizard, not on how to modify an existing installation.
