Understand the default port configuration

A port is an endpoint of communication in an operating system that identifies a specific process or a type of service. Bitnami stacks include several services or servers that require a port.

The defaults ports for the main servers are the following:

| | | |–|–| | Apache | 80 or 8080 | | MySQL or MariaDB | 3306| | PostgreSQL | 5432| | Tomcat | 8080|

When installing the stack as a non-privileged user (that is, a user apart from the root user or the system administrator), the default Apache port is 8080.

If these ports are already in use by other applications, the installer will prompt for alternate ports to use during the installation process.

NOTE: To run applications as a non-privileged user, select port numbers above 1024.
