Appeon Server Web Component installation (for third-party Web servers only)

If you use a third-party Web server (such as Apache or IIS) or set up an individual machine (separate from the application server) as the Web server, you will need to install the Appeon Server Web Component. If not, you do not need to run the installation of the Appeon Server Web Component separately since it is included in Appeon Server.


  • Install a third-party Web server that is compatible with the JBoss redirector plug-in. For a list of compatible third-party Web servers, refer to (Optional) Third-party Web server requirements.

  • Stop the Web server and any other Windows programs before beginning the installation process.

Prerequisites if Web Component installed to multiple Web servers

Appeon Server Web Component can be installed to multiple Web servers. Make sure all Web servers meet the above requirements and repeat the installation steps for the Appeon Server Web Component on each Web server.

Installation instructions

Step 1: Launch the Appeon for PowerBuilder 2015 Setup program and select to install Appeon Server Web Component (see Starting the installation).

Step 2: Click Browse to select the Web root (or document root) for the Web server. Below lists the default Web root (or document root) of the Web server:

Apache 2.0: C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs

IIS: C:\inetpub\wwwroot

If Appeon Server Web Component is installed to the default path: "C:\Program Files\Appeon\WebComponent2015", instead of the Web root (or document root) of the Web server, you would need to manually copy it to the Web root (or document root) later in order to run the Appeon application.
