If you already have an entry in the
Directory based configuration field, it is
recommended that you temporarily replace your current configuration file with the Webulator/400 sample

Webulator/400. After you feel comfortable with its functionality, you can then modify
your existing Directory Based Configuration file to include the desired new entries for

Webulator/400 User File Pathfield to
This file is shipped with no entries since it is not possible to know the user ids or passwords on your system. You must add your own entries to this file using the WRKWBLUSR command before it will be useable by Webulator/400.
It is beneficial to use the sample user file because of the authority settings that are shipped with this file.
/WWWSERV/CFG/WBLMACC.CFG) that is shipped with Webulator/400 contains a root directory entry with a signon method of signon screen. "Signon screen" was chosen because of its ease of setup, but it does have some potential security considerations. If you are not comfortable having a signon screen available even for a short period of time, you should change the signon type to a different value before restarting or reconfiguring Web Server/400. This value can be set through the
Sign-on methodfield through option 10 of the WRKWWWDIR command or directly through the CHGWBLCFG command.
/WWWSERV/CFG/WBLMACC.CFG) that is shipped with Webulator/400 contains only the Webulator/400 root directory entry and no child directories. You can optionally add more Webulator/400 directory entries by running the WRKWWWDIR command. Please note that all Webulator/400 directory entries must start with
/*META/WEBULATOR/. Therefore, the Webulator/400 root directory will always be named
/*META/WEBULATOR/. If you want to add a new directory entry off of the Webulator/400 root, you can add an entry such as
/*META/WEBULATOR/STATUS/. By creating additional directories, you can have multiple URLs that will have different characteristics (such as which user will automatically be signed on).

If your server is already started, then you may run the Set WWW Configuration Values (SETWWWCFG) command which will reconfigure the server which in turn will start Webulator/400. Please note that in the future when you reconfigure Webulator/400, the new configuration values will take effect for all new sessions only.
