Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP10 Getting Started Guide

Accessing the Administration Server

After you have started the Administration Server, you can access it by specifying the Administration Server address in a browser window: http://server_name:administration_port .

For Instance, if the server name specified during installation is acme and the default port 8888 as the port for the Administration Server to run on, open a browser and type http://acme:8888.

The Administration Server prompts you to authenticate yourself through a login screen. Type your username and password (you specified these when you installed the server). Once authentication is complete, you are ready to get started.

You can manage your Web Server, using the following user interfaces:
