Installing WAPT Server on Windows

Attention

  • The WAPT Server can not be installed on a computer with services already listening on ports 80 and 443 (example WSUS with IIS).

  • ports 80, 443 and 8080 are used by the WAPT Server and must be available;

  • If ports 80 and 443 are already occupied by another web service, you should take a look at the Microsoft official documentation for changing the default ports on Windows

  • port 8088 is used on client machines by the WAPT agent and must be available;

  • The WAPT server will not run on a x86 version of Windows;

  • The installation of the WAPT server must be done using a Local Administrator account on the host

Attention

From WAPT Server 1.5 onward, Nginx is the ONLY supported web server. Apache or IIS (with or without WSUS) are no longer supported in WAPT.

In case of problems when installing WAPT, visit the Frequently Asked Questions.

Note

  • installing WAPT on a Linux server is the recommended method, unless you are trialling WAPT and you are not familiar with Linux

  • the WAPT Server may be installed on 64bit system only for Windows version currently supported by Microsoft

Hint

the server component of WAPT works just as well on a win10 client VM or physical machine as it does on a Windows server version.

  • Discovery: WAPT Discovery will be released later in April. For the time being the free Edition of WAPT please refer to WAPT-1.8 documentation https://www.wapt.fr/fr/doc-1.8/
