That sounds like you are using a Unix variant (Linux?), which generally won't let you run things below port 1024 unless you are running the server as root.

It's a bad idea to run a web-application as root, you should run it as a dedicated user, but

  • Run it behind Apache, with Apache proxying port 80 to whatever you're running Jira on
  • Use Authbind
  • Use setcap
  • Use a firewall port-forwarding rule
  • (I'm sure there's another one that still avoids running Tomcat as root, but I can't remember it)

The best solution by far is the Apache one though.

Oh. Um, this is the same question you've already asked at https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/111216/jira-port-issue

Please don't repeat yourself just because you don't understand a previous answer. Go back and read the responses you've had - they are correct, and you need to follow them up instead of just asking the same question again, as the answers have not changed
