Parameter: httpsPort

Startup parameters change the behavior of the Service Manager server. You can always set a startup parameter from the server's operating system command prompt.




This parameter defines the communications port that a servlet container process uses to communicate with clients using HTTPS (SSL-encrypted HTTP). A servlet container process can only have one HTTPS port open at a time. Servlet container processes can only use an HTTPS communications port if the sslConnector parameter is enabled. This parameter requires the use of the sslConnector parameter.

It is best practice to use this parameter from the command line or configuration file for each individual servlet container process you start. This practice makes it easy to identify the HTTPS communications port each servlet container uses.
