When you install the Author-it API Server setup files you also install the Author-it API Server Windows service.
- Run the Author-it API Server setup file and follow the prompts.
During the installation, you'll be prompted for the service user credentials.
Note: if the credentials are incorrect, the installation will not complete. If this occurs, check the credentials and run the installer again.
- After installation has completed successfully, open the properties for the Author-it API service, named "Author-it API Server". Set the service's Startup type to Automatic, then apply the change and start the service.
After you install and configure the Author-it API Server Service you can test your installation.
During installation, the installer automatically assigns credentials for the Author-it API Server service. You can create a local user on the server (as part of the Administrators group) or use a domain user with Administrator permissions. The following examples can be used for the username format:
Local user:.\[username] (for example, .\APIUser)
Domain user:[username]@[domain] (for example, aortha@Acme.local)
