Change Nginx Listening Port from 80 to another port (ex : 81)


This is how to run Nginx web server on the custom port :

sudo vi  /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default

server {
listen 81 default_server;
listen [::]:81 default_server ipv6only=on;

root /usr/share/nginx/html;
index index.html index.htm;

# Make site accessible from http://localhost/
server_name localhost;

location / {
# First attempt to serve request as file, then
# as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
# Uncomment to enable naxsi on this location
# include /etc/nginx/naxsi.rules
}
