[How to] Ispconfig change port 8080

ispconfig3-logoIspconfig is open source hosting panel used by many Hosting providers.Though Cpanel is best , Ispconfig is also far better than other free hosting panel.By defalut the admin panel of Ispconfig is accessed by using http://ip-addresss:8080. If any one using Ispconfig I first suggest to change that port to another for security reason.For changing 8080 is quite easy. Follow the steps for this:

1.Open your terminal and login as root.

2.vi /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-ispconfig.vhost

here you will see as : Listen 8080
NameVirtualHost *:8080

Now change 8080 as your desired port. For e.g. 8000

Similarly change 8080 in sites-available also.

Then restart your apache2. Now browse Ispconfig in new port as http://ip-addresss:8000.

Cheers 🙂

  1. Why do you suggest to use IspConfig3 on port 80 instead of 8080 ? It is a nice tutorial but isn’t it better to take a more non-logic, not easy to think about, port like 8082 or 81 or what ever ?

    Thank you for the information. I am using IspConfig3 for a long time now and wrote a lot of extensions to be able to use/configure HAProxy hosts, Galera MariaDb 10.1 Cluster nodes, relocating a host from server A to server B, etc.
