Moving apps to port 80? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've setup MOSS 2007 on a spare PC with the Central Admin page coming up as: http://sharepoint:3577/default.aspx. I've also created some apps on this same port (Board of Directors, etc...), and would like to move the apps that I created onto port 80. (Example: move http://sharepoint:3577/BOD to http://sharepoint/BOD).
    Can someone help?
    thanks,
    Carlton.

  • Hello Carlton,

     

    You can try the following steps, but please note to do enough backup before it, in case of any potential risks:

     

    1.       Export data from web application "sharepoint";

    2.       Delete and recreate a new web application with the same name ( "sharepoint");

    3.       Setting up the new port (80) during the creation;

    4.       Import the data previously exported.

     

    Hope it helps! Let us know the result if possible. Thanks!

  • supposing that you want to change your url from http://sharepoint:365
    to http://mywebapp,

    pls follow the following steps:

    Create a DNS host record for the new host name of mywebapp and assign it the ip address of the sharepoint server.
    Goto IIS Manager.Expand the list of websites and find SharePoint-365.  Right-click on it and select properties.
    From the website tab, make sure that the IP address you assigned the host record in DNS is selected here.  
    Change the port number to 80 and click Advanced.
    Click on the IP address and select edit.
    In the host header value field type the hostname you desire, in this case mywebapp.  Click OK, then click OK on the web properties.
    Now go into your SharePoint Central Administration and click on Operations.
    Now click Alternate Access Mappings under Global Configuration.
    In the top right corner, select the web application you wish to work with, in this case it is SharePoint-365.
    Now all Internal URL's associated with that site should be listed.  In my case there was only one, http://sharepoint:365.  Click on the URL.
    Now in the URL protocol, host and port field type http://mywebapp/ and click ok.  Dont change the zone.  Leave it on default.
    Now close SharePoint Central Administration and open your web browser and type in the new URL, http://mywebapp.

    Hope this helps!

  • Carltonw,
         If you would like to physically move the site then you have a couple of choices. 

    If your BOD site is a site collection then you can back it up with STSADM and restore it to a new web application on port 80. 

    If your BOD site is a site (like web site, not a site collection) you could use the STSADM Export command to export it and then import it to a subsite on a new site collection under port 80.

    HTH.

  • This won't work since I'm changing the port for the Central Admin page. How can I move/change the port for the admin and apps pages?
