Your web browser opens the Gateway home page at http: //localhost:8088. Sign in using the credentials for the administrator or user with full privileges for the Gateway as shown in Step 13 above.
Ignition installs itself as a Window Service (Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services > Ignition Gateway), so it starts automatically when your computer starts up.
Automated Installation on Windows
You can automate Ignition installation across different machines using scripts. Ignition is then installed silently from a command shell without showing any user prompts.
Keep in mind that the installer cannot automatically start the Gateway after a silent installation. You can use the following command to start the Gateway:
net start ignition
Command line example:
Ignition-8.x.x-windows-x64-installer.exe --mode unattended --prefix "C:\some folder" --unattendedmodeui none net start ignition
-- mode unattended (ensures that no prompts appear during installation)
-- prefix "C:\some folder" (optional flag; if a value is set, then Ignition is installed in the specified folder, otherwise Ignition is installed in a default location under C:\Program Files)
-- unattendedmodeui none | minimal (the
none flag does not display any sort of graphic during installation; the
minimal flag displays a small progress bar and nothing else)
Uninstalling Ignition on Windows
Be sure to back up your Gateway and unactivate your Gateway license.
During a new Ignition installation, an uninstaller executable is created.
When Ignition is uninstalled, the settings database and folder in
/data is backed up to
/data_<current date>, and modules and user-supplied JDBC jars in
/user-lib are backed up to
/user-lib_<current date>. Also, the Ignition service is removed from Windows installations automatically.
To run the uninstaller for Windows,
- Open the Start menu and navigate to All Programs > Inductive Automation > Ignition.
- Select Uninstall Ignition.
The uninstaller wizard guides you through the uninstallation process.
You can also uninstall Ignition from the Windows Control Panel > Programs and Features section.
