YouTrack Standalone 7.0 Help

Configure Network Interface Binding for MSI and ZIP Distributions

By default, the Jetty servlet engine and HTTP server used in YouTrack bind on the 0.0.0.0 network interface. For security reasons, this action may be restricted in some environments.

You can use the configure command to change the listen-address property for your YouTrack server. Execute this command on behalf of the same OS user that runs the YouTrack service. This command creates configuration files and folders. The YouTrack service user must have permission to access the files and folders that are created by this command.

To customize the network interface binding for an MSI distribution:

  1. Stop the YouTrack service.
  2. Open the Command Prompt window as an administrator.
  3. In the command line, change the directory to <YouTrack installation directory>\bin.

    The default installation directory location is C:\YouTrack.

  4. Enter the following command:
    youtrack.bat configure -listen-address=<new network interface address>
  5. Start the YouTrack service.

To customize the network interface binding for a ZIP distribution:

  1. Stop the YouTrack service.
  2. Open the command-line interface that is supported by your operating system.
  3. In the command line, change the directory to <YouTrack installation directory>/bin.
  4. Enter the following command:
    youtrack.sh configure -listen-address=<new network interface address>
  5. Start the YouTrack service.
