Webserver Installation

When you install Kwickserver Web and Database Server be aware that the harddisk of your computer will be deleted and overwritten! Be sure that you do not have any data you still need on the harddisk!

Put the install CD in your CD device and reboot the computer. After a notice that you will delete your harddisk, which you can confirm with the Enter key the installation runs almost fully automatically. If the computer is connected to a network with a DHCP server, no interaction is necessary while installing. If not, you will need to type in the necessary IP informations like IP address, network mask etc.

Compared to the other Kwickservers (Firewall, Mail, Fileserver) there has been a change in the installation process. While the old process ran fully automatically but offered no way for experts to change important settings, there is now a way to make setting. To make the installation process as easy as before for non-experts, we provide all steps to make a default installation here with screenshots:

After booting the CD you see the following screen where you select the very first entry in the menu (Install):



 After a short time you see the following screen where you select the first entry (Guided - use entire disk):


 In the next screen you select the harddisk you want to use. Usually there will be only one.



 In the next screen you again select the first entry (All files in one partition):


 Then confirm all settings with "Finish partitioning and write changes to disk:



Finally confirm a last time with "Yes":



After installation you can access the web administration via http://yourip/admin . This address will be displayed on the screen after the installation. The username is admin and the password is admin. You should change this password as soon as possible.
