Finding out the port for websphere portal

If your looking at a portal installed by someone else and want to find out the port no.s you can follow these steps

  • Go to the wp_profile/ConfigEngine and execute ./ConfigEngine.sh list-server-ports config task.

  • This task will create wp_PortMatrix.txt file in the wp_profile/ConfigEngine/log directory

  • In my case with default portal installation this is how the file looks like


    WC_defaulthost=10040
    WC_adminhost=10027
    WC_defaulthost_secure=10035
    WC_adminhost_secure=10041
    BOOTSTRAP_ADDRESS=10031
    SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS=10033




Once you know the port nos you can connect to portal by using http://localhost:<WC_defaulthost>/wps/portal and admin console by going to https://localhost:<WC_adminhost_secure>/ibm/console.

Helpful post!

Depending on your environment, you may need to add username and password to the end:

C:\IBM\WebSphere\wp_profile\ConfigEngine>ConfigEngine list-server-ports -DWasUse
rId=wpsadmin -DWasPassword=mypassword
