Urchin WebAnalytics Software is discontinued and is no longer supported. All Urchin documentation applies only to the Urchin product as it was at the time of discontinuation, and does not apply to any Google Analytics products or services.

Setting the Urchin Port Number

The default port number that the Urchin webserver will listen on is 9999. Changing this number consists of two basic steps:

  • Changing the port number in the Server Settings screen
  • Stopping and starting the Urchin services, which will be a slightly different process for Windows versus UNIX-type systems

The detailed process is as follows:

  • Login to the Urchin administration interface
  • Navigate to Configuration->Settings->Access Settings and click on the Server Settings tab
  • Set your new port number in the Server Port Number box
  • Click on the Update button

Now you must restart the Urchin services:

  • On Unix-type systems go to the bin directory of your Urchin 4 distribution and run:
    ./urchinctl -w stop
    ./urchinctl -w start
  • On Windows systems, from the console, go to Start->Programs- >Urchin and choose Disable Services, then choose Enable Services.

The webserver should now be listening for connection requests on the new port number. This means that the URL used to view reports and configure the Urchin software has changed, and your users should be notified regarding the new URL.
