localhost:8080

Last Update:
open   http://localhost:8080 ➚

localhost:8080 refers to a specific network address and port number on your local machine. Let's break it down:

  1. localhost: As mentioned earlier, "localhost" is a hostname that refers to the current device you are using. When used in a URL, it points to the loopback address (127.0.0.1), meaning it connects to services on the same device.

  2. 8080: This is a port number. Ports are used to differentiate between different services or processes on the same machine. Port 8080 is commonly used for web servers as an alternative to the default HTTP port (port 80). It is often chosen to avoid conflicts with other services that might be using port 80.

So, when you access localhost:8080 in a web browser, you are telling the browser to connect to the web server running on your local machine through port 8080.

For example, if you have a web server (like Apache or Nginx) running on your computer and configured to listen on port 8080, accessing localhost:8080 in your browser would display the content served by that web server.

Keep in mind that the specific use of localhost:8080 can vary based on your local setup, and you may need to check your web server configuration to determine which port it is configured to use.

Which apps uses localhost port 8080 ?

The use of port 8080 on localhost can vary based on your system configuration and the applications you have installed. Here are some common types of applications or services that might use localhost port 8080:

  1. Web Servers:

    • Web servers like Apache or Nginx may use port 8080 as an alternative HTTP port for serving web content.
  2. Application Servers:

    • Java application servers like Tomcat or GlassFish often use port 8080 for HTTP traffic.
  3. Development Servers:

    • During software development, developers might use port 8080 for testing and debugging purposes. Tools like the Python http.server or Node.js http-server may use this port by default.
  4. Containerized Applications:

    • Containers managed by Docker or other containerization platforms may expose services on localhost:8080.
  5. Integrated Development Environments (IDEs):

    • Some integrated development environments or tools may use port 8080 for hosting web-based components or services.
  6. Proxy Servers:

    • Proxy servers, either standalone or as part of networking tools, may use port 8080.
  7. IoT Devices or Network Devices:

    • Some Internet of Things (IoT) devices or network devices with web-based interfaces may use port 8080 for local access.
  8. Database Management Systems:

    • Some database management systems or tools may use port 8080 for web-based interfaces.

Remember that these are general categories, and specific applications within these categories may or may not use port 8080. If you're trying to determine which application is using localhost port 8080 on your system, you can use command-line tools or graphical interfaces to check active network connections, or consult the documentation of specific applications or services installed on your machine.
