If you use the built-in LabVIEW Web Server, the root directory is the location from which the Web Server loads files for document requests. The default root directory for the Web Server is labview\www.

Complete the following steps to configure the root directory of the Web Server.

  1. Select Tools»Options to display the Options dialog box.
  2. Select the Web Server page from the Category list of the Options dialog box.
  3. Place a checkmark in the Enable Remote Panel Server checkbox in the Remote Panel Server section.
  4. Enter the path of the root directory you want the Web Server to use in the Root directory text box. You also can click the browse button to navigate to and select the directory.
  5. Click the OK button to save the current configuration and close the dialog box.
Note Note  When a user enters the URL of the Web Server without specifying a filename, an error page or directory listing might display. You can create an index.htm file in the Web Server root directory that automatically loads instead.
