How do I remove the port number from the URL when self hosting Confluence on a subdomain?

I'm running confluence on a DO droplet and I can't seem to figure out how to change the port number of my confluence installation from :8090 to just plain :80.

Any ideas?

For what it's worth, option 1 is a lot easier and safer, as with 2 you have to start messing around with process and user permissions to run it securely on a port lower than 1024 on a Unix based machine.

Hey Nick,

Since ports lower than 1024 is only for root, you can redirect the 8090 port to the 80 one as it was suggested in this documentation.
