First, you need to install ROAD clients for web hosting inside a web server (like IIS).

Install ROAD Admin: Self-hosted

This paragraph is about the installation of ROAD clients using a self-hosted website.

In this guide, we will take IIS as an example, but other website hosting technologies will work similarly.

Prerequisites

Self-hosted HTTP(S) Website

To serve the ROAD client application pages, you need a web server, and a website configured for the ROAD clients inside it.

Firewall

In the likely case that you want the ROAD client applications to be reachable from the outside, you need to configure your firewall to open the port you previously configured in IIS for the ROAD client applications.

Installing ROAD Clients

For every ROAD client you are installing copy all its files in the folder configured to be the root of the application when configuring the HTTP(s) server (e.g. IIS).
