How to restart Iguana’s built-in web server when the dashboard is unavailable

The Iguana web server can be restarted through the Iguana Dashboard (Settings > Web Server ). But what happens if you need to restart the web server when the dashboard is not available?

In Iguana 5.6.1 we added the ability to restart the web server from the command line. You simply need to invoke the iguana executable using the “restart_webserver” parameter, i.e., “./iguana –restart_webserver“. The simplest way is to change to the iguana install directory and run the command

Scripts similar to these will work on windows, mac and linux:

— mac/linux
cd /Applications/iNTERFACEWARE-Iguana/
./iguana –restart_webserver)
