Issue:

Orchid was installed to the wrong port or the port needs to be changed.

 

Resolution:

Operating System: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (GUI)

1. Open a new terminal window.
2. Type 'sudo gedit' and enter the server password.
3. GEdit will open. Click 'open'. Choose 'computer' under devices on the left column. Navigate to:

/etc/opt/orchid_server.properties

Note: If you are unsure of how to edit the file, feel free to read our guides on how to edit Orchid's configuration files in Linux.

4. Add webserver.port = 81 to the end of the file, changing 81 to the port you would like Orchid set to. (eg. webserver.port = 85 for port 85).
5. Open the browser and navigate to http://localhost:2812
6. Choose 'orchid_server' and then 'restart service' at the bottom.

You should now be able to access the Orchid UI on the new port.
