I just installed mountain lion server. By default it's listening to https port 443. Even if I deacitivate all the services. I want to install rumpus FTP but I also want it to listen to https. How do I change the default web server port of mountain lion server?

Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

    The equivalent of https for ftp is sftp which is basically ftp running with ssh encryption. It would normally use port 22.


    The following may help.

    Rather than change the server OS why don't you change Rumpus instead? By default Rumpus' Web based FTP portal (what you should be using) listens on port 8000. This makes sense as you would not want it to conflict with anything else being hosted on port 80. It's been a while but IIRC Rumpus' interface does offer secure http via port 8443. If not the interface allows easy configurable options for the port suggested or any other port you like.
