Tip: If we use a nonstandard web server port (that is, a port other than the default port of 80) we must also perform the following procedure:

  1. Using the administrative console, add the nonstandard port to any required virtual host in WAS, including the default_host if applications are mapped to it.
  2. Regenerate the plug-in.
  3. Propagate the plug-in.
  4. Restart the application server.
  5. Restart the web server.
