How to Configure the Server

You can configure Web Server/400 through commands or by editing files directly.

Configuring the Server Through Commands

Changing configuration through commands is recommended because the system can validate information as you enter it and help to eliminate mistakes.

Configuring the Server by Editing Configuration Files

You may also edit configuration files directly, using any editor. You must take care that the server has authority to read the files. By default, the server runs as WWWUSER. If you are editing the files with a PC editor (e.g. EPM, NOTEPAD, EDIT), you may find that the editor writes first to a temporary file, then renaming the temporary file over the original file. This scheme will cause authority information to be lost for the configuration file and Web Server/400 may not be able to read it. Here is information about the configuration file contents and syntax.
