Moving status page to another than 80 port, move skyview to 80 port

I’d like to achieve the following:

  • move default piaware status page to another port than 80
  • move skyview from 8080 to 80 port

How to get this done in the lighthttpd config?
Would appreciate any help at a level of a Linux user with basic skills.


Edit the appropriate files in this folder:


If you need more detail, someone else will have to provide it.

Oh to apply changes, restart lighttpd.

Thanks for your prompt reply.
I’ve already read lots of posts regarding files /etc/lighttpd/conf-enabled, but I’m not 100% sure which changes to apply in order not to mess up or brick my pi.

Well the real files are in


Copy them somewhere else and start experimenting.

(in conf-enabled are just symlinks)
Also try understanding the syntax, it’s not that complicated.

Would you like to correct me pls if I am wrong:

FILE: lighthttpd.conf:

server.port = 80

change to (let’s say):

server.port = 8484

FILE 89-dump90-fa.conf

Listen on port 8080 and serve the map there, too.

$SERVER[“socket”] == “:8080” {
alias.url += (
“/data/” => “/run/dump1090-fa/”,
“/” => “/usr/share/dump1090-fa/html/”

Not how i would do it, but might work :slight_smile:

You’ve got backups, just try it … how else would you learn?

Would you like to let me know your way of doing this ;-)?

The method I suggested here worked.
@wiedehopf - thnx for encouraging me to experiment :wink:
