View Full Version : Initial Configuration
03-11-2008, 01:03 AM
Installed and started ES successfully on red hat linux webserver. Unable to get it correctly configured to view the web-based admin. Opened up the ES4Configuration.xml file, attempted numerous configurations, not sure what I am doing wrong?
1.) Should the host be the IP address or domain address?
2.) I set the port to 80 (which is a TCP HTTP port) Server does have a firewall set-up
3.) Does Ssl enabled need to be set to "true"
4.) If set up correctly, where will this admin area reside? ( ex. http://domain: port/admin )

If you will be using a browser on the box itself, you can leave the IP as "localhost". If you will be using a browser that is on the same side of the router as the box, use the local IP address. If you are using a browser on the other side of the router, use either the external IP address or the words version of the IP.
Normally the port is left at 8080, or else moved to another port that is nowhere near port 80. If this is a webserver as well as ElectroServer, port 80 is already being used for other things.
Ssl enabled just changes the to https from http. Ssl enabled is more secure of course, so that somebody with a packet sniffer can't pick up your admin username and password.
The default admin address with Ssl enabled is:
Replace "localhost" with the IP address (either numbers or words). Replace "8080" with the port you specified. Replace "https" with "http" if you do not enable Ssl.
Also, after you finish editing ES4Configuration.xml, you will need to reboot ElectroServer or it will continue using the old version.
edit: If you are working from the other side of a router, you will need to make sure the firewall allows you access to the port you specified.
