How to Bind Port 80 to Tomcat 7 in Ubuntu

Default tomcat installation uses 8080 port. This is not preferred way when you present your web application over a top-level domain. I needed this information for my new sites gamenism.com/game and onlineuml.net/modeler. Below I am describing how to bind port 80 to Tomcat 7.
  • Backup /var/lib/tomcat7/conf/server.xml
  • Open /var/lib/tomcat7/conf/server.xml for editing. Find the part beginning with "<Connector"
    As highlighted below, change the value of port attribute to 80.

    <Connector port="80" protocol="HTTP/1.1"    connectionTimeout="20000"   
        redirectPort="8443" />
  • Backup /etc/default/tomcat7 file
  • Open /etc/default/tomcat7 file for editing. 
    • Find the line containing "AUTHBIND" property. This line should be commented. Uncomment it.
    • Set AUTHBIND property to YES. This is required to bind a port to a process which is less than 1023.

  • Restart tomcat 7

    sudo /etc/init.t/tomcat7 restart
