The reasoning behind port 8080 Edited

This is something that has been "bothering" me for a while and I just can't seem to find a clear answer for it.

 

What is the reasoning behind JIRA using port 8080 instead of the default 80 (HTTP-non S)?

I can understand this being needed in a multi tenant environment but other than that it just doens't make sense in my mind to use 8080 as a default port.

What's everybody's take on this? Are you actually using port 8080 (and perhaps using a reverse proxy to redirect) or did you change it to a more common sense 80/433?

 

Would you love to hear your thoughts on this.

Hi,

on Linux all ports below 1024 are privileged & need some extra configuration.

See

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10182798/why-are-ports-below-1024-privileged

We use port 8009 via AJP with an Apache HTTPD reserve proxy to handle all the SSL/TLS stuff.

Best

Great!

That clears things up. I'm working mainly in a windows environment and there we don't really need to take this in to account.
