Configure AppDNA Environment wizard

Dec 08, 2016

You use the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard to do the initial configuration of AppDNA immediately after installing AppDNA or upgrading to a new version. Subsequently you use this wizard for advanced management and configuration tasks. Typically these are performed on the machine where the AppDNA web server is installed.

The options in the first step in the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard are:

Configure new installation – (New installation only.) Select this option if you have just installed AppDNA.

  • For a server installation, this option sets up the AppDNA web server and web site, creates the SQL Server database, and enables you to activate your license or choose to run AppDNA in trial mode for 30 days.
  • For a client installation, this option sets up the connection to the AppDNA web site and database.

Reconfigure installation – (Existing installation only.) Select this option if you have an existing AppDNA installation and you want to add a new or existing database, or edit your AppDNA server configuration.

Upgrade installation – (Existing installation only.) This option upgrades an existing AppDNA database to a new version of AppDNA. Select this option if you have installed a new version of AppDNA.

Important: When necessary, the wizard will perform an IIS reset. Therefore, stop AppDNA clients before starting the wizard. An IIS reset makes any other web sites hosted by IIS on this server unavailable for a brief interval. An IIS reset terminates import and analysis sessions on running AppDNA clients connected to a web server that hosts both the AppDNA web site and database.

Licensing – Select this option to inspect your AppDNA licenses, activate a new license, or transfer a license.

The Configure AppDNA Environment wizard opens automatically after you install AppDNA. To open it later:
