How to Change Ephesoft’s Port Number

Sometimes it is necessary to change the port that Ephesoft operates on. This is to prevent conflicts with other programs that are using port:8080

First, shut down Ephesoft if it is currently running.

Navigate to the web.xml file found at


You will want to change this:


to this:(or the desired port number)


Next open the file C:\Ephesoft\Application\WEB-INF\classes\META-INF\dcma-workflows\

Change this:


To this:


Next open the file C:\Ephesoft\Application\WEB-INF\classes\META-INF\dcma-batch\

Change this:


To this:



Navigate to the server.xml file

Found here: C:\Ephesoft\JavaAppServer\conf\server.xml

Change the highlighted value below to match the port number in the previous files (8090 or the desired port number)

   <Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
              redirectPort="8443" />

Note: The easiest way to do this is to do a find/replace for “8080” and replace all cases of 8080 with 8090 (or the desired port number).

Change this:

<Server port=”8005″ shutdown=”SHUTDOWN”>

To this:

<Server port=”8006″ shutdown=”SHUTDOWN”>

Also change this:

   <Connector port="8009" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8443" />

To this: (or desired port)

   <Connector port="8019" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8443" />

Finally, restart Ephesoft
