Hi all. New to Act. I am reinstalling the software because the person who initially set this up over a year ago never got it up and running. I went through the process of installing, I am using a domain admin at present, I created the database on the root of the C drive instead of in the user folder (what's up with that anyway??) and I have not set up impersonation because I have absolutely no freaking idea what the heck that is!
Now in IIS Manager, there was never a web site created for the install. If you are not using IIS, then I need to know how to access the web portal on the server. There does not seem to be anything in the help file on the subject.

Thanks it was the APFW part of the URL that was not immediately obvious. Also, I renamed the host after sharing the database and had to work through all of that. At least I have a much better understanding of how all this works.
Still not sure what all the hoopla about using an impersonation account though. Is that so databases shared from a users profile can be accessed by impersonating an administrator? I have to say, the articles out there on how to do this are quite cryptic. I avoided all that by creating the database in a folder at the root of the C drive, then giving all domain users read/write access. Not sure if that is advisable, but frankly going about this the prescribed way seems onerous.
