Management interface🔗

The VisionAppster Engine provides a web-based management interface that is accessible through the built-in web server. By default, the server is bound to port 2015. If you have the Engine running locally, http://localhost:2015/ should take you to the front page.

The Builder provides the same management interface in its built-in web server. It uses a different address by default: http://localhost:2020/. It should be noted that a system-wide service installation and the Builder use a different component databases. Installing a component to one does not make it available in the other. If you want to install a component for development use in the Builder, use port 2020. Otherwise, use port 2015.
