WebAdmin (web administration)
WebAdmin is disabled
Choose this option to disable WebAdmin. You can also toggle WebAdmin active/inactive from the File menu, or from the Servers section of the Stats frame on the main MDaemon GUI.
WebAdmin runs using built-in web server
Choose this option to run WebAdmin using MDaemon's built-in web server. You can also toggle WebAdmin active/inactive from the File menu, or from the Servers section of the Stats frame on the main MDaemon GUI.
WebAdmin runs using external web server (IIS, Apache, etc)
Choose this option when you wish to run WebAdmin under Internet Information Server (IIS) or some other web server instead of MDaemon's built-in server. This prevents certain GUI elements from being accessed which might otherwise cause conflicts with your alternate server.
For more information, see Running WebAdmin under IIS.
Run WebAdmin server using this TCP port
This is the port on which WebAdmin will listen for connections from your web browser. The default port is 1000.
Sessions expire after xx inactive minutes
When you are logged in to WebAdmin, this is the amount of time that your session is allowed to be inactive before WebAdmin will close it. The default is 15 minutes.
Click this option if you want WebAdmin to store your logon name and certain other properties in a cookie on your local computer. Using this feature gives you a more customized login experience but requires that they have support for cookies enabled in your browser.
Require IP persistence throughout WebAdmin session
As an added security measure you can click this checkbox to cause WebAdmin to restrict each session to the IP address from which you connected when the session began. Thus, no one can "steal" the session since IP persistence is required. This configuration is more secure but could cause problems if you are using a proxy server or Internet connection that dynamically assigns and changes IP addresses.
Stop WebAdmin when MDaemon stops
Click this option if you want WebAdmin to be shut down whenever MDaemon is shut down. Otherwise, WebAdmin will continue to run in the background.
This is the URL that WorldClient will use internally when users click the Advanced Settings link to edit their account settings via WebAdmin. If you are running WebAdmin with the built-in web server, then leave this field blank. If you are using an alternate web server such as IIS, and you have configured WebAdmin to run at an alternate URL or IP address, then specify that URL here.
Bind WebAdmin's web server to these IPs only
If you wish to restrict the WebAdmin server to only certain IP addresses, specify those addresses here separated by commas. If you leave this field blank then WebAdmin will monitor all IP Addresses that you have designated for your Default and Extra Domains.
Restart WebAdmin (required when port or IIS value changes)
Click this button if you wish to restart the WebAdmin server. Note: when changing the port setting you must restart WebAdmin in order for the new setting to be recognized.
