Allow the private web server to start, if one is present.



Versions of InterSystems IRIS® prior to 2023.2 included a private web server that served built-in web applications such as the Management Portal. Beginning with 2023.2, new installations of InterSystems IRIS no longer include a private web server. See this section of the Web Gateway Guide for more information.

[Startup]    WebServer=n

n is either 1 (true) or 0 (false). The default value is 0 for new installations, 1 for upgrades.


When WebServer is enabled (n = 1), InterSystems IRIS attempts to start the Apache private web server upon startup.

Changing This Parameter

On the Startup page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Additional Settings > Startup), in the WebServer row, select Edit. Select WebServer to enable the private web server.

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change WebServer in the Config.StartupOpens in a new tab class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in Editing the Active CPF).


A restart is required for this setting to take effect.
