I want to access jira using startard port 80. So I amended the server.xml from port 8080 to 80 and restartd jira (as a service).
But after the change I cannot access jira.
What are the changes that i need to make to fix this?
It seems that apache is not listening to this port. Can anyone help please?
Note:If I use any other port say 8091 , 8092 etc it works. but not 80
If you're using a linux OS then you need to run JIRA as a root user. Only root is allowed to run applications on ports lower than 1024.
If you're running on windows, you could have another service running on that port already.
Eithery way, the change you're making is most likely correct, but an environment variable could ne holding you up.
sudo iptables -A PREROUTING -t nat -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8080.
This will just fit your bill, redirect everything from 8080 to 80 and you can access it over http without any issues. Ex : (www.jira.mydomain.com) as compared to default (www.jira.mydomain.com:8080)
In any case take a look at this documentation, is always better to read the official information, at least to understand:
