Web Server


Configure the Iguana Web Server.

This is the built in web server used by Iguana’s user interface. The web server port is also used to connect to Iguana for remote administration and monitoring etc. Iguana does not use an external web server such as Microsoft IIS or Apache.

From here you can set the Web Server Name,  Port, Session Timeout and enable HTTPS.

Basic Configuration [top]

Click Edit to change settings, enter the desired settings then click Save Changes and Restart Web Server.

Server name

  • Specify the name of your Iguana Server
  • To include an Environment Variable in the Server Name, use ${variable name}
    The Server Name will be previewed like this:

Setting the server name is helpful in environments where there are multiple Iguana servers that need to differentiated.

Allowable Login Failures

  • If this setting is exceeded the user is locked out for 5 minutes

Session Timeout

  • If the user is idle for longer than this they will be logged off

Web Server Port

  • The default web server port is 6543.
  • If this port is not available you must choose another port.
  • In Iguana 6.1.2 and newer, you can use an environment variable in this field, just like for the server name.


Enabling HTTPS Support [top]

Iguana’s HTTPS functionality is useful for ensuring that confidential data remains private. It is also secures changes made within the Dashboard, as these changes will be encrypted within your browser’s HTTPS layer. The acknowledgement that you receive from the web server will also be encrypted, and will be decrypted using your browser’s HTTPS sub-layer.

You can use the view certificate link to view the certificate details:
