See the System Requirements in preparation for server installation.
Prior to installing the on-premise server you will need to install SQL Server 2012 (full version). This is not included in the on-premise server installer.
Once you have SQL Server 2012 installed you can run the on-premise Server installer. Select the install location:
Next enter in the path and credentials for accessing the database server:
LabStats will create a database upon connection to the database server.
By default, the LabStats web manager service is set to use port 81 to access the dashboard and the clients will communicate with the client communication server over port 8080.
To navigate to the Web Manager you will need to enter your serverAddress:81
If you do not want to have to enter the port when accessing the dashboard, you can change the bindings on the default web site to a different port.
This would allow you to set the LabStats Web Manager port to 80.
If you decide to change this after installation, you can edit the bindings on the Default Web Site to something other than 80 and then edit the bindings on the WebManager to use port 80.
Follow the steps on the installer to complete the installation. Once installation is complete, you can access your instance using the default credentials labstats/labstats.
On your first attempt to access the frontend website you will be guided through a short setup guide (this may change slightly as we are still adding features) that will allow you to view the Terms and Conditions, change the temporary password we provided you (keep in mind the password is case sensitive and new passwords will need at least 8 characters including at least one number).
You will be prompted for a license key. If we have provided you with one, please input it here. If not, you can continue by using the 30 Day Trial and then contact us with the following information so that we can provide a key:
Customer ID #
Email Address for someone who will be managing LabStats.
You can set up SMTP mail settings for email notifications, or you can skip this and set it up within your user profile later. You will also have the opportunity to set up or skip the Active Directory integration tool.
Select which applications on our “most common apps” sheet that you want to track.
You can also download the client installers here.
All steps on the setup guide will also be accessible via the web console. Once you have completed setup, you can click Finish to be taken to your Dashboard.
