Allow the web server to start.


[Startup]    WebServer=n

n is either 1 (true) or 0 (false). The default value is 1.


When Webserver is enabled (n = 1), the web server starts when InterSystems IRIS® data platform starts. The web server is necessary to enable REST and SOAP APIs, as well as the Management Portal. For information on the private web server, see the section Minimal Apache Web Server or Private Web Server in the Web Gateway Configuration Guide.

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 this setting.

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change WebServer in the Config.Startup class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in the Editing the Active CPF section of the “Introduction to the Configuration Parameter File” chapter in this book).
