Running Guacamole on port 80

I have a perfectly good Guacamole web server instance running on CentOS using port 8080. I would like to be able to access it on port 80 but apparently that would require root privileges. I read the following article:
http://guacamole.incubator.apache.org/doc/gug/proxying-guacamole.html
which explained that I could do something called reverse proxy. However this is over my head. I'm not much of a linux user. Can anyone point me to or provide step-by-step instructions on how to alter my system's configuration to serve this website over port 80?

P.S. I don't care about SSL for this case. It's a closed lab environment.

do you have root access to the system?

do you know how to configure it to listen / user port 80?

If your answer id yes to bot questions then you can change the port to listen to and start it as root.

If the start happen during system boot then root can add a start  script to get it started while booting.

If you need to sart, stop, or restart as different user then you can ask root userto letyou do that with sudo

Yes to the first question, no to the second.

I do not know how to start the application as root nor am I sure how to configure it on port 80.

I searched and found that you can configure port in guacamole.properties file. Please see below:

# Hostname and port of guacamole proxy
guacd-hostname: localhost
guacd-port:     4822
