Hi everyone,

Is it possible to run CC and view the dashboard webapp on a port other than 8080?

I edited [cc_home]/wrapper.conf and set to the desired port (ex: 8087)

I edited [cc_home]/etc/jetty.xml and set the addConnector section with this:
<Set name="port"><SystemProperty name="jetty.port" default="8087"/></Set>

I get this error in my logs: [cc]Jul-14 09:48:43 atusReportTask- Failed to reach dashboard instance : http://localhost:8080/dashboard/buildloop/listener, either the dashboard has not started up or there is a network problem.

? How is it printing an output error message looking for port 8080 when I've set properties for a different port? Was it compiled with java code that uses 8080 that is ending up in the error message?

|--> maybe it's related to this?: -->

I can see the dashboard in my browser at http://localhost:8087/dashboard, but all my projects are "grayed out" (instead of green) The CC docs say that grey projects on the dasboard: indicates an inactive or discontinued project*.

* Inactive projects are ones that are defined in CruiseControl's configuration file but have never been built (in other words, CruiseControl can't find any logs corresponding to this project). A discontinued build is one that has log files from previous builds, but is not defined in CruiseControl's configuration file

I also tried running running the cruisecontrol.bat from the command line and specifying the options: webport and -dashboardurl to which I get the same result(that same exception and greyed out projects on my dashboard)

I'm running Dell Lattitude WinXP 32 bit w/Intel Celluron Duo and Java 1.6u14

Thanks for any help!
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
