Cannot change port from 8080 in YT 6.0

I want to change the port from 8080 to something else (say 8181). I tried to follow instructions at this page:

but there are a number of problems:
1. It talks about "conf/internal/" but I only have "internal/conf/"
2. Editing "" and adding listen-port makes no difference to the port being listened on for connections.

I can see that various other configuration files are changed upon service restart, but I can also see from netstat that nothing is listening on port 8181, and the service is still running on 8080. None of the base-urls are changed. I suspect I am missing something in my install (?) to not have "", but no errors were given and everything seems to be running fine, apart from the port.

Can anyone help please?

i think you are using the wrong path, please go to %programdata%

Thanks Oscar

I have the right path from what I can tell. I was asked where to install (strange that it didn't default to %programdata%\YouTrack6.0 or something), and I chose C:\YouTrack.

The YouTrack installation inside %programdata% is definitely 5.0.

Any more ideas?

My upgrade steps:
1. please uninstall old youtrack
2. install 6.0 as per screen instruction
3. 6.0 will use 8080 as default without asking, just upgrade with 8080
4. go to %programdata% (yupe, i was selected C:\YouTrack too for installation path)
5. stop youtrack service.
6. add listen-port pair value.
7. start youtrack service.

Thanks Oscar, I misread %programdata% as %programfiles%. It's now working.
