Change the default port VestaCP 8083


The following command line will change the default port VestaCP 8083 to 2083, you can change it as you wish, for example 65001 or 2087 and so on.

Open a terminal, connect SSH and run the following command:

sed -i 's/8083;/2083;/' /usr/local/vesta/nginx/conf/nginx.conf && v-add-firewall-rule ACCEPT 2083 TCP && service vesta restart

Do not forget to update all VestaCP packages, which should be done earlier before running the command to change the default Vesta control panel port.


Check, open control panel vesta with new port in setup.

    I’m going to start my own bloog iin the near future but I’m
    having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution annd
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your
    design and stygle seemns diffferent then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
