Change or remove the Central Administration Web site port number in SharePoint

During the SharePoint Foundation Installation, the Central Administration Web application is established on a PORT that you have assigned or randomly assigned port if you don’t select.

You can change this Web site port number or delete the port number complete from Central Administration Web application Server.

Follow the steps if you want to change the port number 80, means when you launch you Web application you no need to specify the port number for ex:-

1. Open “SharePoint 2013 Management Shell” as Administrator

2. Run below command

PS C:\Users\svc-sharepoint> stsadm -o setadminport -port 80

You should receive the message “Operation completed successfully”

3. Reset IIS using below command

C :\> iisreset

4. Now you should be able to launch your Central Administration Web application without port number i.e http://Application_Server_Name
