Configuring Network Ports in Posit Package Manager#

RStudio is now Posit!

Our professional products have been renamed to Posit Connect, Posit Workbench, Posit Package Manager, Posit Cloud, and Posit Academy so it’s easier for folks to understand that we support more than just R. Please review our Blog post/FAQ to answer commonly asked questions about the rebrand.

By default, Posit Package Manager, formerly RStudio Package Manager, uses port 4242 for HTTP and port 443 for HTTPS.

Configuring a custom HTTP port#

You can configure custom network ports by editing the configuration file and restarting Package Manager.

To change the HTTP port to 80, add the following lines to the Package Manager configuration file:

File: /etc/rstudio-pm/rstudio-pm.gcfg
Listen = :80

Then restart Package Manager by running the following command:

$ sudo systemctl restart rstudio-pm
