How to change the website port for Pyramid 2018

In this article, we will explain how you can change the web site port from the default 8181 to a port of your choice.

This article assumes that you are using a local Postgres instance for the repository.

  1. Login to the Pyramid 2018 server and navigate to "C:\Program Files\Pyramid 2018\"
    • Open and edit Config.ini
    • Search for "wwwport=8181" and update it with your chosen port
  2. Navigate to "C:\Program Files\Pyramid 2018\postgres\pgsql\bin".
    • Open a command prompt from this location by holding down the shift key and right clicking > open "Command Prompt" 
    • Run the following command:
      psql -h localhost -d pyramidg2 -U pyramid -p 12130
    • You will be asked to enter a password which you can take from the Config.ini file look for the line that starts with "[data]"
  3. Run the below command:
    delete from public server_instances where Server_description ='Web Server';
  4. Restart the Pyramid 2018 Web Server service found under windows services, this will reset the port to what you set it as in the config.ini.

It may take about to a minute or two for the port to take effect, so you may need to refresh and or close the browser a few times.
