Borland Search won"t start or you need to change the default port to be other than port 80

Borland Search won"t start or you need to change the default port to be other than port 80

Problem:

Borland Search won"t start or you need to change the default port to be other than port 80

Resolution:

If you have an application, such as IIS or Apache, already running on port 80 then Borland Search won"t start. This is because Borland Search tries to use port 80 by default. You can change the port that Borland Search uses by performing the following steps.

First, stop Borland Search if it is running. Then go to the following directory: C:\Program Files\Borland\Borland Search\conf. You may need to adjust this path according to where you installed Borland Search.

Open the file server.xml with notepad and search for the following string:

Change the port from 80 to whatever you want to use. When you start Borland Search again, it will use this port. This will resolve any conflict that you may have had with another web server already running on port 80.

Please note that you will need to alter the URL that you use to access Borland Search to include the port that you selected. For instance, if you selected port 8080 then the URL would look like the following:

:8080/bss/login.borl">http://:8080/bss/login.borl
