GpsServer - Change website port

Sat Aug 25, 2007 7:40 pm

I installed GpsGate Server and then changed to port in the default web site
to :8083. The admin page and the vehicle tracker admin page worked fine...
but it would not find the next link. Example:
'http://server:8083/gpsgateserver/Index.aspx' brings me to the GpsGate
Server - Login page, when I Select the Application and click the 'Go to
Application button it can't find
'http://server:8083/gpsgateserver/Index.aspx'. When the port is at the
default 80, everything works. Where else do it have to make the port
change(s), besides the default web site to get to work?
I don't know if I should change the port back to 80, uninstall, the change
the default web site port to 8083, then reinstall.??

Update:
The port change problem has been identified and will be fixed in the next release.
If you're reading this and urgently need it before then, please send us an email and we should be able to provide you with a custom pre-release build.

Thanks for the report Alan!

Fredrik

>>We have now investigated the port change problem and put together a custom build that fixes it.

Download it here: [Moderator edit: the link is available upon request, it's not yet a public release]
I ran this install over the old one. The web site will not run. I have uninstalled it
and went back to the older ver.

Alan:
When you say your site doesn't run, did you notice if it was because of some new kind of problem or just the same port problem you had previously? We've successfully swapped ports using the custom build and that makes me fear something else went wrong (that's also why I disabled the temporary link you gave.)
We'll get back to you tomorrow to see if we can narrow it down!

Fredrik

After the install, over the top on the existing working gpsgate server web site, I could not open any of the pages, admin, vehiletracker, and viewer.
ie: http://server/gpsgateserver/Index.aspx
http://server/gpsgateserver/Index.aspx
http://server/gpsgateserver/VehicleTracker/,,
Uninstalled what the link that you sent me.
Reinstalled the gpsgateserver ver. from last week.
All of the above listed links now work again...

Update:
Alan's upgrade problems, as described above, were caused by an error in the custom pre-release build of GpsGateServer (intended to address port allocation). The error has been fixed and will not affect users upgrading from the current version (build 148) to the upcoming release.

Fredrik
