Web site

Mar 28, 2016

The AppDNA web site enables local intranet users to view reporting results from the AppDNA web client.

To change the web site credentials used to access the AppDNA database

If the password on the user account changes, you must update the credentials on the AppDNA web site. To do that, start the AppDNA configuration wizard, choose Reconfigure installation, choose Reconfigure system, select the database, and then, in the AppDNA web site credentials step, specify the credentials. Click through to complete the wizard.

Note: When necessary, this procedure automatically performs an IIS reset. This will make any other web sites hosted by IIS on this server unavailable for a brief interval.
For more information about working with the configuration wizard, see Configure a server installation.

To change the web site port

Note: Although it is possible to change the AppDNA web site name, this is not recommended.

By default, the AppDNA web site uses port 8199. Citrix recommends that you change the port only if the default port is already in use. To do that, start the AppDNA configuration wizard, choose Reconfigure installation, choose Reconfigure system, select the web site, and then, in the Web site Configuration step, enter the new port number. Do not use a well-known port, such as ports in the range 0 – 1023, or 3500. Click through to complete the wizard.

When you change the web site port, the configuration wizard updates the AppDNA server site list (an XML file). If there are any AppDNA clients connected to the web site, you must copy the updated site list file to each client machine.

Note: Citrix recommends that you back up the client site list file before you perform the following steps.
  1. On the AppDNA server machine, copy the SiteList.xml file, which is located in the following folder:
    %ProgramData%\App-DNA\AppTitude
  2. Close AppDNA on each client machine.
  3. Paste the SiteList.xml file that you copied in step 1 to the following folder on every client machine:
    %AppData%\App-DNA\AppTitude
