Configuring Network Ports in RStudio Workbench#

By default, RStudio Workbench, formerly RStudio Server Pro1, uses port 8787 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 Workbench.

To change the HTTP port to 80, add the following line to the RStudio Workbench configuration file:

File: /etc/rstudio/rserver.conf

www-port=80

Then restart RStudio Workbench by running the following command:

Terminal

$ sudo rstudio-server restart

Additional documentation#

For more information on network ports and other related settings, refer to the Network Port and Address section in the RStudio Workbench Administration Guide.
