Modify Alfresco external URL

Hello,

i need to modify the external link of Alfresco.

Actually is reachable from an external network using the following link:

my_public_ip:8080/alfresco

Is it possible to change the "my_public_ip:8080"  to something i decide, like my FQDN ?

Thanks in advance

Re: Modify Alfresco external URL

Sure - you just need to have a domain name assigned to that IP, and you should be good to go. In order to avoid the non-standard / technical port 8080, it is common to put a web server in front of Alfresco as a proxy, so you can use ports 80/443 (SSL). Technically speaking though, you could configure the Alfresco Tomcat to bind to port 80, but that requires running the process as root on Linux, which is not recommended for security reasons.

Don't forget to change alfresco.host, alfresco.port, share.host, and share.port in alfresco-global.properties so that Alfresco will build the proper URLs.

If you are connecting via CMIS you may also have to set some of the opencmis properties, like this:

opencmis.context.override=false
opencmis.context.value=
opencmis.servletpath.override=false
opencmis.servletpath.value=
opencmis.server.override=true
opencmis.server.value=http://your-fqdn-goes-here
