By default, Web Help Desk runs on port 8081. If Apache Tomcat is not required and you prefer to run the application on port 80, perform the following steps:

  1. Stop Apache.
  2. Set the DEFAULT_PORT variable in webhelpdesk/conf/whd.conf to 80.
  3. Restart Web Help Desk.

    Execute:

    /usr/local/webhelpdesk/whdstart

  4. Enable Apache to run on port 80 by allowing it to proxy requests to the Web Help Desk on port 8081.

     

    See Apache Module mod_proxy on the Apache Software Foundation site for more information.

    ]>ProxyPass /helpdesk http://localhost:8081/helpdeskProxyPassReverse /helpdesk http://localhost:8081/helpdesk 

    When completed, the application will appear as if it is running on port 80.

    1. Open the webhelpdesk/conf/whd.conf file.
    2. In the file, set the URL_DEFAULT_PORT setting to 80
    3. Save the webhelpdesk/conf/whd.conf file.
    4. Enable mod_proxy as described in the Apache HTTP Server Version 2.0.
    5. Add the following lines at the end of your Apache httpd.conf configuration file:
    6. Save the file.
