Settings on a Domino Web server

To change the settings of the Domino Web server, use the following steps:

1. Start the Domino Administrator.

2. Choose the server you want to reconfigure.

3. Choose the Configuration tab.

4. Choose server - All Server Documents.

5. Double-click the Domino server you want to change or select the server and click Edit Server.

Figure 6-1 Web server configuration

To change the Domino Web server port, click Ports - Internet Ports in the server document. The Web tab should be selected by default.

It is best to use the default port 80 for a non-secure Web server and port 443 for a secure Web server.

Note: The secure server will not run until you create a server certificate. See the section "Setting up SSL on a Domino server" in the Domino 6 Administration online help.

Here you can also choose if you want to allow name and password authentication for clients connecting over TCP/IP; the default is "Yes." Also specify whether you will allow anonymous connection over TCP/IP; again, the default is "Yes." The same is true for the SSL protocol.

Next, select Internet Protocols - HTTP. In this section, you should make at least the following changes:

► In the Basic section enter a hostname and select the "Bind to host name" option if you use a Domino partitioned environment. The parameters

"Maximum request over a single connection" and "Number of active threads," which are discussed later in this chapter, should be set.

► In the Enable Logging section, enable either log files or Domlog.nsf, if you want to create statistics telling you about, for example, who, how much, and which pages were accessed on your Web server. Enabling either type of logging will affect server performance.

► In the Mapping section, customize the Home URL. It should be either a Notes database or an HTML file.
