If you need to do batch or unattended installations, you can install Appweb silently. Use the /silent switch to suppress questions and /verysilent to suppress all visual output.

Running Appweb

Appweb will start when the installation procedure completes and will launch your browser directed at the Appweb local home page. Thereafter, Appweb will automatically start if the system is rebooted.

If you wish to manually stop Appweb, right click on the Appweb Monitor icon in the system tray (lower left corner of the task bar) and select the Stop Appweb option. To restart Appweb, select the Start Appweb option.

Alternatively, you can run appweb manually in a command window.:

cd \Program Files\Embedthis Appweb
bin\appweb

Appweb is configured by default to listen on port 7777. To test that it is serving pages, point your browser at http://localhost:7777. To tailor the Embedthis Appweb configuration, including the default port, you may wish to edit the appweb.conf configuration file.

To get all the options for Appweb, run:

bin\appweb --help
