=== Starting Jetty ===
+
 
+
To start Jetty open a command shell, go to your Jetty installation directory, and type:
+
java -jar start.jar
+
 
+
This starts Jetty running on port 8080.
+
 
+
{{warning|Jetty will not start if another process is using port 8080|The port number can be changed by editing the <tt>$JETTY_HOME/etc/jetty.xml</tt> file. Please see the [[#Setting Jetty's Port]] section below or for more details see [[Jetty/Howto/Configure Jetty|How to Configure Jetty]]. The rest of the instructions in this wiki will assume that you are using port 8080}}

+
=== Stopping Jetty ===
+
 
+
From the command shell where Jetty is running type: <tt><ctrl-c></tt>.
+
 
+
=== Testing Jetty ===
+
 
+
When Jetty starts, it deploys a test web application on port 8080.  To check if Jetty is running properly navigate to localhost from a browser. For example:
+
 
+
http://localhost:8080/
+
 
+
{{note|Port and host defaults|If you started Jetty on another host, substitute that host name for <var>localhost</var>. If you used a different port number you will also need to change <var>8080</var> to the correct number. Unless otherwise noted, the rest of the instructions in this wiki will assume that you are using <var>localhost</var> and port <var>8080</var>
+
}}
+
 
+
=== Setting Jetty's Port ===
+
 
+
To change Jetty's default port, edit <tt>$JETTY_HOME/etc/jetty.xml</tt> and change the port number in this line, then start Jetty:
+
<source lang="xml">
+
<Set name="port"><SystemProperty name="jetty.port" default="8080"/></Set>
+
</source>
+
Alternatively you can set the port on the command line. Please see [[Jetty/Howto/Configure Jetty|How to Configure Jetty]] for more details.
