Turning on automation for maximum efficiency
The main advantage of Linx is the automation of your solutions (that you have built in the designer). These solutions are deployed to the Server and run as a service, executing automated tasks that take place in the background.
The Linx Server is the key to this automation. The Server hosts and manages your Linx Solutions and web services. Once Solutions are added to the Server, you will run the process defined in your Solution. Solutions can be on triggered by a one-time event or have unlimited repetitions based on the conditions defined in your solution.
How to deploy your Linx Solution to the Linx Server
After creating your solution and you’re ready to go live, simply click the “Deploy” button on the toolbar. You can select the server you want to deploy to and Linx will start uploading your solution.
Monitor the performance of your Linx solutions from a central console. With Linx’s web-based user interface, you can continuously manage services, monitor activity and review the history and error logs for deeper insight into performance.
Connecting to the Linx Server
When you install Linx you can select which port to use for your Server access. By default this port is 8022. If you haven’t changed this, then you can use your browser to access the server using the link https://localhost:8022.
Note: Your browser may give a Certificate Error, but you can safely ignore this and continue to the server Dashboard.
The last step is to locate your solution on the Server dashboard. From here you can start/stop your service (solution), monitor performance, review logs etc.
Advanced Server Solutions:
One way to start using Linx, if you want to try different configurations, is to use a Virtual Machine and create an installation. Please check out our Community post regarding using a VM with Linx: http://community.linx.software/t/setting-up-a-test-vm-machine/113
If you’ve installed Linx on a remote server and you want to access the Server remotely, remember to set up the port on your firewalls. You would then access the server with the full URL: http://Servername.domain.com:8022
