The Web Admin lets you configure and manage the ELC from a Web browser. The following browsers are compatible with the Web Admin:

  • Firefox
  • Safari
  • Chrome
  • Internet Explorer 8.0 and newer

Important! Check that your browser has JavaScript enabled and that it accepts cookies from your server page.

To access the Web Admin, launch a web browser on your computer, and enter the server's machine name, for example:


The webAdminBindAddress property in file specifies what IP address the Web Admin server uses. The default is If there is more than one hostname and/or IP on the machine where the ELC is installed, the default value ensures the Web Admin is reachable on all of them. If no value is defined the address is taken from server slip(s).

The default port for the Web Admin server is 5580. It can be changed by modifying the file. Change the line webAdminHttpPort = 5580 to webAdminHttpPort = [your port]. After modifying the port, you can access the Web Admin by clicking http://machine-name:[your port]/loginAdmin.jsp. If you set the port to 80, you do not need a port number in the URL.

You can disable Web Admin by changing the webAdminEnable property the file to False.
