Configuring Network Ports in RStudio Package Manager

By default, RStudio Package Manager uses port 4242 for HTTP and port 443 for HTTPS.

Configuring a custom HTTP port

You can configure custom network ports by editing the configuration file and restarting RStudio Package Manager.

To change the HTTP port to 80, add the following lines to the RStudio Package Manager configuration file:

File: /etc/rstudio-pm/rstudio-pm.gcfg

[HTTP]
Listen = :80

Then restart RStudio Package Manager by running the following command:

Terminal

$ sudo systemctl restart rstudio-pm
