Installing and configuring the Hansoft web service

The Hansoft web service must be installed before users can use the web client. The web service includes the Hansoft web service API and the nginx web server. The web service does not need to be installed on the same computer as the Hansoft Server.

This information also applies to installing and configuring the web service for the Hansoft Slack integration.

Note:  The nginx web server has its own configuration file. We recommend not making changes to the file because it is overwritten every time the web service starts and your changes will be lost.

Tip:  See Troubleshooting for help if the web service does not start or if any other problems occur.
