No specific action required with Debian the web interface is available "out of the box".

The following steps require super-user privileges.

RHEL interface web installation:

1. Start the following services thanks to commands:

/etc/init.d/bo_ac start
/etc/init.d/bo_server start
/etc/init.d/bo_analytics start
/etc/init.d/afs_host start
/etc/init.d/afs_stats start

2. Check if afs_logmanager daemon is running (/etc/init.d/afs_logmanager status). If not, start the process (/etc/init.d/afs_logmanager start).

3. Link BO portal to server thanks to the following commands:

cd /var/www/html
ln -s /usr/local/afs7/share/templates/bo-portal .

4. If SELinux prevents you to access the BO, use the following command:

/usr/sbin/setsebool httpd_can_network_connect

Back Office access point:

In SaaS mode (cloud computing), the Back Office interface is secured and hosted in Antidot datacenter. It is a web interface which can be accessed at any time with any web browser. The Back Office address is http://bo.afs-antidot.net/en/ (English) or http://bo.afs-antidot.net/fr/ (French)

In license mode, the Back Office is hosted at the customer's premises. It is accessed at the address defined by the customer. Default is: http://${Domain_Name}/bo-portal/

It is recommended to use at least the following browser versions (and later versions):

  • Firefox 3.5
  • Safari 1.3
  • Opera 9.5
  • Chrome 2.0
  • Only Internet Explorer 7.0 and later versions are supported

The default login information in license mode is:

antidot : change_on_install

It is strongly advised to change this default as soon as connected.

Back Office default root password change:

From the Back Office host server, use a console to run the following command line:

wget --post-data='"foobar"' --header='Content-type: application/json' 'http://localhost:36080/bo-ws/root/password?afs:login=login://antidot:change_on_install@Antidot&afs:method=put'

Where:

  • foobar is the new password
  • change_on_install is the old password
