Introduction


Here we are going to explain the EVE web configuration panel. This is the panel that the installer uses for the configuration of EVE Server where many information is present, where updates are possible to be made and many more. The only rule the installer does not have to forget is that the access to the web configuration panel is possible only when connected to the same server network. It would be pretty similar to a router configuration.

Connection and Login


Open the browser and enter the server IP on the URL bar. Note. You need to be connected to the same server network, if you can’t access anymore to your server please refer to this guide.

In order to know how to obtain the correct IP of your server please refer to the dedicated “Server IP” guide.

Once typed the server IP on the URL bar press enter and the EVE login page will be loaded. Here you will find general information about your servers such as server version, license ID, public IP, MAC address and an overview of all the installed plugin modules with a link to the corresponding configuration page.

Above the login area where you need to type the password in order to get access to the server web configuration panel.

Note. The default password is “password” however we suggest to edit it once the project will be defined (please refer to “Multiuser management” guide).

Note. If you can’t access anymore to your server please refer to this guide.

Utility

Firmware update

Here is where you update the firmware and you can do it by choosing the image file or by checking for online firmware updates. In this case the system informs you if any new version is available and you are free to choose if execute the update or not. If you update the system, it will reboot after 120 seconds and  you will need to login again.

Restore / EVE Services / Reboot

Here you can also restore database, stop and start services or reboot the system when it needs to be done.

“EVE Services” is a particular service for exceptional cases: when EVE Server is running, external devices to which it is connected may become inaccessible. This is what happens in the case of some KNX gateways that accept only one connection at a time. To overcome this problem, stop the services for as long as necessary and then restart them with the appropriate buttons at the screen.

Diagnostic

The diagnostic panel allows you to make a quick check on the system connection. Press “Start” to allows the checking and confirm the operation. If all is ok the response should be OK to all the item listed on the checking list. If not FAILURE wording will be display on the correspondent item.
