Install NetServer / web services
NetServer is always installed, but for some scenarios, we recommend it is installed as remote web services.
This page describes a separate installation of SuperOffice NetServer / web services. For full installation of SuperOffice Web, please follow the install guide.
Since SuperOffice 10.1.2 we do no longer support SuperOffice Web installation with remote NetServer. SuperOffice Web client must be now installed as a standalone web application with inprocess NetServer.
However you can still install standalone NetServer and use its web services for SuperOffice Service or integration purposes.
Before you begin
- Download the Web installer package
Upon launching the installer, you might be prompted to install some prerequisites, install these by clicking the Install button.
To start the installation, you need to accept the license agreement.
Specify the SuperOffice Web Application name and select the destination folder where you want to install it. If you chose to split the installation into one SuperOffice Web and one SuperOffice NetServer installation it is recommended to choose a name that correlates to the type of installation.
Select the second setup type if you want to split SuperOffice Web and SuperOffice NetServer into two separate installations, either because you want to install them on different servers or just want to split the application.
In the next dialog select the first option to install the NetServer application server with Web Services.
In the next dialog select the website and/or virtual directory for your installation and specify a name for the new virtual directory, by default it will take the name you wrote in the dialog from step 3. We recommend you chose a name that correlates to the type of installation, like SuperOfficeNetServer.
