Customize Jetty Port

This page describes how to change the default port binding for the eXist-db backend standalone server jetty.

As far as we know, the default option to to change the port does not work--at least with the stable version 1.4.0. The quick-and-dirty way to force jetty to bind to another port is to directly edit the jetty.xml configuration file found in tools/jetty/etc/jetty.xml under the eXist-db installation root. The value you want to edit is found in the xml tag

<SystemProperty name="jetty.port" default="8080"/>

Simply change the value of default="8080" to the port number you wish to use with eXist.
