Hi,

I am setting up a public server for my EWB app. I use EWB modules which work great, but I wonder under which account the EWB server runs. I have seen in my llogs that it now runs under an administrator account. Can I change that on a Windows server? I mean: can I create an account with minimum rights and have it "run" the Webserver?

Thank you,
Ronald

A Windows service is normally run on the System account, but you can use services.msc to set it to any user account with appropriate rights.

Oops, a bit too fast... EWB server is running, but I do not see anything that looks like EWB in the services list. Am I overlooking something?

EWB Web server can be run interactively or as a service so it running
does not indicate what mode you started it in.

1. Have you registered it as as service ? (this is what makes it show up
in services panel)

2. Have you started it as a service ?

A bit late with my response, but you were right. Installing a service is not the same as starting it. I had installed but not started the service.
