Downloading Manager Server

Download the latest version of Manager Server from:


Unzip to desired folder.

Launching Manager Server

Launch Terminal app, navigate to the folder where you have unzipped contents of and launch the server with following command:


When you launch the server, the last line should say:

HTTP server listening on port 8080

By default, Manager Server will listen on port 8080. Open your web-browser and navigate to .

You should see login screen.

Default administrator password is empty so just click Login without entering any password.

Internet access

To access your Manager Server from the Internet, you will need to configure your router so it properly routes connections from the Internet into your computer running Manager Server. This is called port forwarding.

Custom domain

Instead of typing IP address, your users can type domain name instead. This will involve setting up A record on your domain so the domain name (or subdomain) points to IP address of your Internet router.

Setting up HTTPS

If you are going to allow access from the Internet, it is highly recommended you secure Manager Server by HTTPS connection. This means your connection to your server will be encrypted. We recommend to use free edition of Caddy which will run on ports 80 and 443 and will automatically install SSL certificate for your custom domain.

You can download Caddy from

Untar and launch Caddy with the following command:

caddy reverse-proxy --from --to

This will instruct Caddy to act as a transparent proxy and pass all HTTPS requests to port 8080 where your Manager Server is running.
