  1. LINUX ONLY: Stop the server before doing any change. This is not required on macOS nor Windows.


    If you omit this step on Linux, the old port will still be kept open in the firewall until you close it manually or reboot the server.

    • Open a terminal and type:

      Code Block
      sudo fwcontrol server stop

  2. Open the folder where the Apache configuration is located:
    • Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\FileWave\Apache\conf
    • macOS and Linux: /usr/local/filewave/apache/conf

  3. Copy "httpd_webadmin.conf.example" to "httpd_webadmin.conf".


    httpd_webadmin.conf.example is ignored by Apache and will be overwritten on the next server upgrade. On the other hand, httpd_webadmin.conf will be preserved across server upgrades.

  4. If you just want to serve the web console on port 20440443, you can omit this step. Otherwise:
    1. Open httpd_webadmin.conf in a text editor.
    2. Locate the following line:

      Code Block
      Define WEB_ADMIN_PORT 443

    3. Change the port number from 443 to whatever port you want to use such as 20440.

  5. Start/restart the server:
    • Windows: open a command prompt and type:

      Code Block
      fwcontrol server restart

    • macOS and Linux: open a terminal and type:

      Code Block
      sudo fwcontrol server restart
