How to change the default port of Tomcat?

Tomcat by default runs on port number 8080, However there is high chance get a port conflict with others program. Sometime we just need to change the Tomcat port number.
1) Locate server.xml in {Tomcat installation folder}\ conf \
2) Find following similar statement
<!-- Define a non-SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8180 -->
<Connector port="8080" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"
maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="100"
connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true" />


<!-- A "Connector" represents an endpoint by which requests are received
and responses are returned. Documentation at :
Java HTTP Connector: /docs/config/http.html (blocking & non-blocking)
Java AJP Connector: /docs/config/ajp.html
APR (HTTP/AJP) Connector: /docs/apr.html
Define a non-SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8080
<Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
redirectPort="8443" />

3) About Tomcat’s server.xml file cites it’s runs on port 8080. Change the Connector port=”8080″ port to any other port number.
4) Edit and save the server.xml file. Restart Tomcat. Done.
