How to modify the Apache port in bitnami?

Today, let us see the steps followed by our Support Techs to modify port depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages, or if it is a self-contained installation.

To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:

test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."

 

Approach A: Bitnami installations using system packages

HTTP port

Under the default configuration, Apache will listen for HTTP requests on port 80.

To change the port number, follow the steps below:

  • Edit the /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/httpd.conf file and modify the value specified in the Port directive. For example:
Listen 8080
ServerName localhost:8080
  • Edit the /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/bitnami/bitnami.conf file and modify the value specified in the VirtualHost directive. For example:
<VirtualHost _default_:8080>
  • Edit all non-SSL virtual host files inside the /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/vhosts/ directory and modify the value specified in the VirtualHost directive.

Please do not edit virtual host files containing the SSLEngine on directive.

<VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:8080 _default_:8080>
  • Finally, restart the Apache server for changes to take effect:
sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart apache

HTTPS port

Apache listens for HTTPS requests on port 443.

To change the port number, follow the steps below:

  • Edit the /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/bitnami/bitnami-ssl.conf file and modify the value specified in the VirtualHost directive. For example:
<VirtualHost _default_:8443>
  • Edit all SSL virtual host files inside the /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/vhosts/ directory and modify the value specified in the VirtualHost directive. For example:

NOTE: Only edit virtual host files containing the SSLEngine on directive.

<VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:8443 _default_:8443>
  • Finally, restart the Apache server for changes to take effect:

sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart apache

Approach B: Self-contained Bitnami installations
