change HipChat Datacenter base URL

Does anybody know how I can change the hipchat datacenter base url, wich is entered in the last step of the configuration wizard?

Already searched google and the docs but can't find anything.

Hi Frank, 

You can re-execute the steps from Configure Hipchat Data Center using a config file and use an updated public-dns value in configuration.json. For instance: 

"shared-storage-location": "",
"public-dns": "",
"database-server": "",
"database-name": "hipchat_postgres",
"database-user": "hipchat_user",
"database-password": "hipchat"

I hope this helps. Keep in mind that your public-dns value has to match the DNS name of your reverse proxy/load balancer. 

I hope this helps. 

Thank you very much - It works. Exactly as documented. I was distracted from the line in the documentation, stating:

If you're deploying Hipchat Data Center v 3.0.1 or earlier, the configuration file requires the following two additional keys.

But it works perfect with version 3.1.3!


Thank you very much,
