By default how does the web page auto direct to the index.htm page

Hi,

I am in the process of changing our Qlikview servers.

The current server (ServerA) we have has Qlikview v11 installed and our new server (ServerB)has Qlikview April 2020 installed.

For our end users to be able to access "Access Point" they would type into Internet Explorer either http://qlikview/ which when clicking on enter this would auto direct to the page  http://qlikview/index.htm or typing in http://qlikview/index.htm 

When we changed the  DCS to look at the new server ServerB for some reason the web page could not be found? But If I typed in the following address http://ServerB/index.htm on to the Internet Explorer browser it would go to  Access Point.

So my question is, by Default how does the web page auto Direct to the Index.htm page? 

Thanks

Hi Maria,

And on new server I only have the following showing:

Do you suggest having the same Names & Folder Paths as I had on the old Server?

Thanks

Are you using IIS?

what is the best way to know this? The Qlikview webserver is running on the old server but how would I know it is using that and not IIS?

@denwo2010,

There are a couple of places where you can check to see if your using QlikView Web Server or IIS.

  1. In the QlikView Management Console (QMC) > System > About tab, you'll see a lot of information about the QlikView System.  Scroll down to the QVWS section and check under Product Information > Product name.  If QlikView Web Server is listed, then you're using the default QlikView Web Server which comes standard with QlikView Server.  If QlikView Web Server Settings Service is listed, then you're using IIS as the web server.  
  2. Login to the Windows server which is designated as the web server and open the Windows Services applet.  If QlikView Web Server is listed, then you're using the default QlikView Web Server which comes standard with QlikView Server.  If QlikView Web Server Settings Service is listed, then you're using IIS as the web server.
