How can I start Iguana in Safe mode?

Introduction

If you are having problems with one or more of your Iguana channels, you can start Iguana in safe mode. In safe mode, none of your channels are started automatically when Iguana is started.

Tip: If Iguana detects a problem within one minute of startup and does not shut down cleanly, it will automatically restart in safe mode. This enables you to ensure that the channels that you have configured to start automatically are not the cause of this problem.
