Before you begin

Note: Remember the port number. You need to specify the port number in the Configuration Manager.

About this task

WebSphere Commerce DeveloperImportant: This topic does not apply to IBM WebSphere Commerce Developer. You must set the port for the IBM Knowledge Center to 8001 in for context-sensitive help to work in the WebSphere Commerce tools when running a WebSphere Commerce test environment.

If you specify a port other than 8001 for the IBM Knowledge Center, you must change the port that is used for context-sensitive help in the WebSphere Commerce tools in Configuration Manager. If the port used for context-sensitive help in the WebSphere Commerce tools does not match the port number on which you started the IBM Knowledge Center, you will not be able to access context-sensitive help in the WebSphere Commerce tools, such as the WebSphere Commerce Accelerator.
