Go Up to Configuring the Embarcadero License Center


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

  • Internet Explorer 6.0 and newer. NOTE - Internet Explorer 11 is not supported.
  • Firefox 1.5 and newer
  • Safari 2.0 and newer
  • Chrome

Check that your browser has JavaScript enabled and that it accepts cookies from your server page. Starting the ELC server automatically starts Web Admin. To access the Web Admin, launch a web browser on your computer, and enter the server's machine name, for example:

http://machine-name:5580

The webAdminBindAddress property in elise.properties file specifies what IP address the Web Admin server uses. The default is 0.0.0.0. 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 elise.properties 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]. If you set the port to 80, you do not need a port number in the URL.

If you have problems starting Web Admin, check to make sure you installed it. By default it is part of the normal install, but if you did a custom install it may have not been included.

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

To login as one of the default Web Admin Users

Web Admin defines two default users:

  • Username: admin

  • Username: viewer
Password: viewer

To login for the first time, use the default username admin and default password admin.
