October 14, 2009 Leave a comment

There are few things you have to bear in mind if you plan to do this.

  1. You have to be a member of SharePoint Farm Administrators group.
  2. You can only change the Central Admin Website port using Stsadm command-line tool.

Stsadm tools location.
It is on the drive where SharePoint is installed, to go to the exact location, open a command line window and use the following command.

cd %CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\bin

To find out what is the current port number, use the following command.

stsadm –o getadminport

To change the port number, use the following command

stsadm –o setadminport –port <port> [-ssl] [-admapcreatenew] [-admapidname] <application pool name>



Plan alternate access mappings (Windows SharePoint Services 3.0)

The other day, I stumbled on this lovely WSS 3.0 article. It’s about alternate access mappings (includes screenshots). I thought it would be something nice to note down and also to share with others. I recommend it to everyone who are dealing with SharePoint’s alternate access mappings. It should make things easier to understand, and how to configure them properly.
