Mobile: How To Set Up Servers For Self-Hosting
Last Updated July 18, 2022
This article covers best practices for setting up your local server for the WalkMe Mobile self-hosted hosting option, including server requirements, server configuration, and folder setup.
- Server Storage;
- Files can be placed on any web server with SSL support (e.g., S3, Apache, IIS, Nginx, etc.) based on Windows, Linux or macOS;
- The destination server and folder where the files will be stored is accessible to all end-user devices.
- If using HTTPS (recommended), ensure there is a valid SSL certificate on the destination server;
- The server’s SSL certificate must include the domains that will be used for the location of the WalkMe files.
- DNS Server.
Steps For Setting Up Self-Hosting For WalkMe Mobile
*If you’re using a location on an existing server, the server may already be properly configured. If so, skip to step #3.
- Configure your DNS server to include the new domain that holds the path for the WalkMe Mobile files;
- For example, if the path is: http://www.example.com/walkme, define www.example.com in the DNS server.
- If using HTTPS (recommended), issue a new web server certificate with the WalkMe domain;
- Create a folder on the web server where the files will be stored. If you plan to self-host the files for multiple environments (i.e., Test vs. Production), create a specific sub-folder for each environment;
- For the Test environment: http://www.example.com/folder/walkme/test
- For the Production environment: http://www.example.com/folder/walkme/production
- Log in to the WalkMe Mobile Console;
- Navigate to App Settings –> Self Hosting (tab);
- Generate a new self-hosting zip file or download the latest self-hosting zip file;
- Extract the self-hosting zip file content into the folder you created at your web server.
