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 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.
