PowerServer Web Component installation (for third-party Web servers only)


If you use a third-party Web server (such as Apache or IIS) or set up an individual machine (separate from the application server) as the Web server, you will need to install the PowerServer Web Component. If not, you do not need to run the installation of the PowerServer Web Component separately since it is included in PowerServer.


  • Install a third-party Web server that is compatible with the JBoss/WildFly redirector plug-in. For a list of compatible third-party Web servers, refer to (Optional) Third-party Web server requirements.

  • Stop the Web server and any other Windows programs before beginning the installation process.

If Web Component is installed to multiple Web servers

PowerServer Web Component can be installed to multiple Web servers. Make sure all Web servers meet the above requirements and repeat the installation steps for the PowerServer Web Component on each Web server.

Installation instructions

Step 1: Launch the Appeon PowerServer 2017 Setup program and select to install PowerServer Web Component (see Starting the installation).

Step 2: Click Browse to select the Web root (or document root) for the Web server. Below lists the default Web root (or document root) of the Web server:

Apache 2.0: C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs
IIS: C:\inetpub\wwwroot

If PowerServer Web Component is installed to the default path: "C:\Program Files\Appeon\WebComponent2017", instead of the Web root (or document root) of the Web server, you would need to manually copy it to the Web root (or document root) later in order to run the Appeon application.

Step 3: Check the summary of settings. Click Back to change any unwanted settings or click Next and Setup will begin copying files.

Step 4: Click Finish when the installation is complete.

Configuring the Appeon redirector plug-in

To ensure the third-party Web server works with PowerServer, install and configure the Appeon redirector plug-in for the Web server. Instructions for installing and configuring the redirector plug-in are provided in Web Server Configuration Guide.
