6.9. Network Configuration

Available in Nexus Repository Manager OSS and Nexus Repository Manager

By default, the repository manager listens on port 8081. You can change this port, by changing the value in the $NEXUS_HOME/conf/nexus.properties file shown in Contents of conf/nexus.properties. To change the port, stop the repository manager, change the value of applicationPort in this file, and then restart it. Once you do this, you should see a log statement in $NEXUS_HOME/logs/wrapper.log telling you that the repository manager is listening on the altered port.
