Outlined below is my problem and my work around. There has to be a better way so if you know of one please speak up.
I installed open historian 2 just fine and was able to use a web browser connected to ‘localhost:8180’ just fine. After I restarted my computer I could not successfully navigate to ‘localhost:8180’. I tried launching all the applications under start–> OpenHistorian but nothing enabled me to browse ‘localhost:8180’
Here is my fix.
Start menu --> OpenHistorian --> Configuration Setup Utility
Select ‘I want to use an existing configuration’
Select 'Use existing database as is’
Credentials should already be entered in
Make the following selection
Continue to follow prompts and finish.
Now the web manager works. My question is this, what is hosting the web service and how to I start it manually and how do I start it automatically.
