RPM Port Configuration


#1

I wonder if someone can clarify a couple of issues when installing Open Source
Chef Server and Workstation that I’m not clear about.

I’ve installed Chef Server using the RPM chef-server-11.0.6-1.el6.x86_64.rpm.
It’s all installed and running perfectly, so now I’m installing the Workstation
and I’m about to configure knife and I’m looking at;
http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Installing+Chef+Server+Manually#InstallingChefServerManually-ConfiguretheCommandLineClient

It states that Chef Server is on port 4000 and Chef Server WebUI is on port
4040, but this appears not to be the case on the RPM install as nothing is
listening on these two ports. So my question is 1) What ports are they
configured on in the RPM is installation and 2) where are these located in the
config files?

Thanks in advance.

Hi.

That’s because the wiki page you’re looking at is for Chef 10 server.
Chef 11 runs on 80/443.

Here’s an example knife config

Here’s a ticket to update the wiki

Here is the URL for the new docs site.

on similar note, the current default configurations ship with
localhost:4000 as chef_server_url, i was planning to submit a pull request,
but im not sure if this is applicable for 10.x branch as well.
