Self-managed Server Windows Installation

This guide is intended for IT professional responsible for installing the ActivityInfo Self-managed Server in an on-premise Windows Server.

Introduction

The ActivityInfo Self-managed Server for Windows is distributed as a single Microsoft Installer Package (MSI) containing an embedded application, webserver, database, and everything else required to run ActivityInfo.

Getting started

Download the latest version of ActivityInfo Self-managed MSI.

Note: Ports 80 and 443 must be available for the ActivityInfo server. You will need to remove any other applications that are using these ports, such as Admin Center, before installing ActivityInfo.

Double-click the activityinfo_windows-x64_4_0_15.msi file to begin the installation process.

Choosing the installation location

The ActivityInfo server program files are installed seperately from the location of ActivityInfo's database files.

By default, the database files are stored in a folder at c:\ActivityInfoData. All files required to backup the system are present in this folder.
