Title: Changing listen ports for chef server?

I would like my open-source chef server to change the ports it listens to. The goal is for it to coexist with a regular Web server.

Apparently, there are entries in chef-server.rb that accomplish this:

 nginx['non_ssl_port'] = 4080
 nginx['ssl_port'] = 4443

However, when I do this (and of course change the client URL correspondingly), Chef reports internal errors. The nginx log file shows that an internal connection fails:

 [error] 15162#0: *1 connect() failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client:, server: <redacted>, request: "GET /organizations/<redacted>/cookbooks/base_files/0.3.2 HTTP/1.1", upstream: "<redacted>/cookbooks/base_files/0.3.2", host: "<redacted>:4443"

When I remove the entries in chef-server.rb, everything goes back to normal.

Is there something else I have to do in order to change the listen ports?
