Manual installation Best Practices

IguanaConfiguration.xml A

This file is located at C:\IguanaA\IguanaConfiguration.xml since this is the defined working directory for the instance A Iguana. There are three key settings which need to be different from the other 2 Iguana instances:

  1. The web port that the user interface of the Iguana server uses: 8000
  2. The log directory used to store the log files: D:\iguanaA\logs\
  3. The plugin port (it’s not essential to change this but if you don’t you will get a error when Iguana starts up): 7000

The plugin port is used for plugins with Iguana. In general we encourage you to use web services with the Translator instead of plugins with Iguana 5.0.

Here’s some of the content of an IguanaConfiguration.xml file with highlights over the parts of the file you would need to edit:

<iguana_config
encryption_key="Xb9+OWCgTi3NSSUY2UTGJg=="

service_log_guid="9B8CD31EE07B29FAE3CCCE25B9503C63"
