How to change the default ports for admin login to only URL
« on: February 07, 2019, 03:30:26 AM »
Hello,

I was wondering how can I change my.server.com:2030 port for admin login to only on an url my.server.com.
And also how to change the port 2082 customer login to any plain url as well...

Hello,

You can login using a domain instead of IP.
setup hostname by going to server settings > Change Hostname

Please ensure hostname resolves to public IP and has A record

Hi, Thanks for reply, Actually I meant how to remove 2030 port and just make that on a plain url without :2030 port.

I do not recommend to do it, unless you have your firewall scripts tested and up to date, and you be a paranoic reader of your logfiles, to react to them in case of problems.
Although the "security by obscurity" question, the virtual harassment of your server connected to internet 24x7 will be one step less from crackers, more commonly checked in port 80 than in another port.

I would recommend just to change it to another port, and additionally install something like vddos, and have a "recaptcha" to prevent robots and unknown people from testing your root password all the time.
