    how to change listener port 8080

    Hi Friends,

    I got installed oracle 9i on NT and started its listener.
    I pressumed it uses the default port 8080.
    We noticed it got conflict with the port being used
    by the apps developer running on the same server.
    How can i change it to use other port no.?
    Its because one of the apps developer uses also port
    8080 and he said changing it would mean editing
    all his programs and recompile them.


    Thank you all in advance

    Hi,
    By default listener will not use 8080 port. It uses 1521 port.Probably u might have installed apache from oracle software which might be using 8080 port.Please uninstall or stop apache service

    And also check your listener configuratio in listener.ora file, there u would find the keyword PORT. Check the no after the word

    LISTENER =
    (DESCRIPTION_LIST =
    (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC))
    )
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = abcd)(PORT = 1521)(queuesize=200))

    I am not sure, but check for apache config file under oracle home directory, there u will have option to change the port no.

    But please check, i am not sure about this

    This is i would say is a bad practise... ask the developer not to hard code port numbers and URLs, they are to be picked from a property file...

    If this development is for a client then this is not at all accaptable as this can lead to problems, what if client does not want to open the port 8080... or they want some other port...

    As for changing the Apache port number, go to ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/conf and edit the httpd.conf file and search for 8080 or the words "Port" and "Listen" (without the quotes) and you will find the port numbers there, just change them and do a restart of your apache server from the service.
