What file can be modified in order for Apache Tomcat to listen on a different port than the default 8080 to use the Web Console?


The port that  Apache Tomcat is listening on is port 8080 by default .  You can change the listening port by modifying the Server.xml file Tomcat4\conf directory or Tomcat5\conf.
Once that is modified, stop and restart the Apache tomcat service and log back into the web console.  Any URL's with the port number in them that users are using will need to be modified with the new port number being used by the Web Console.
