Changing application data path in server edition

Can server edition application data path be changed too?


Yes, here is the command line syntax for the latest version of Server edition (14.4.43)


    ManagerServer.exe [options]


    -port [number]     Set port on which HTTP server should listen on.
    -path [directory]  Set directory where Manager should look for data.


    ManagerServer.exe -port 80
    ManagerServer.exe -port 80 -path "C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Manager"

In a server environment, can a user use the desktop edition if the .manager file is shared in network? If not, are the users limited to just use http?

Users are limited to use HTTP only. For performance reasons, Manager database is not designed for concurrent multi-process access. There can be only one process accessing Manager database at the same time and server edition is that one process that can serve multiple remote clients over http protocol.

i have to change the port bcz other software which we hosting is only using 8080
Not able change the port in manager
not able to type anything on that window
im using the latest update.

If you need to set options, don’t double click on ManagerServer.exe from explorer. You need to open command prompt and type ManagerServer.exe -port 8090 if you want Manager to run on port 8090.

when i oopen command promt.
i typed ManagerServer.exe -port 8090.
it is showing " This app cant run "
access denied

You need to navigate to the folder where ManagerServer.exe is actually present.

See how to switch between folders.
