Testrail 2.0 forwarding to port 8080 on page submit after update


I just updated to 2.0 and every time I click on Save on the test case edit screen it forwards me to port 8080. It goes from http://server/testrail/ to http://server:8080/testrail/ which cannot be found by my browser. We did not have this issue in the previous release. Is there a setting I can change to fix this?



Hello Matt,

Thanks for your message. Could you please provide us with the following information (either via the forum or email):

  1. The exact version of your TestRail installation (you can check this on the Administration page)
  2. Is TestRail directly installed on the machine mentioned in your URL or is this a reverse proxy and TestRail is in fact installed on another system (which uses port 8080)?

Thanks and I’m sure we can find the root issue quickly. We might need to send some diagnostic information back and forth so feel free to directly contact us via email (contact (at)



Applied the patch. Issue fixed. Thanks Dennis!
