Configuring your web server

After installation, we recommend setting up the web server URL. This is necessary to use many of the features of Burp Suite Enterprise Edition. For example, the web server URL is used to generate links sent by email from the server, such as password reset emails.

To configure the web server, do the following:

  1. From the settings menu , select Network.
  2. Enter the Web server URL.

The first time you log in as an administrator, change the web server URL to http://your-web-server-IP:8080 or the fully qualified domain name of the machine on which you installed the web server. The default port number is 8080.


For standard deployments, you can change these settings later if necessary. If you change some of the settings, you need to wait for the web server to restart. When the web server restarts, change the URL in the browser, and log in again.

You cannot change web server ports on a Kubernetes deployment, as your external port should be configured as part of your ingress solution setup.

Enabling TLS

By default, the web server is configured to use unencrypted HTTP. We recommend that you enable TLS for production use so that your traffic is encrypted.

  1. Select the Use TLS switch.
  2. When prompted, upload a PKCS#12 certificate.
  3. Enter the password for the certificate file.
  4. If you have already set the web server URL, change the scheme to HTTPS.


Make sure the certificate has a .p12 file extension. The .psx format is not supported.

If you have extra infrastructure in front of the Enterprise server, such as a load balancer, additional configuration may be required.

If necessary, you can configure an HTTP proxy server to allow you to connect to the public internet.
