Running the WebCTRL Server
Before you can view a WebCTRL system in a browser, you must first start the WebCTRL Server, called Core, to run the system database. The WebCTRL Server
automatically runs the system database that is currently defined as the default database in SiteBuilder. See “To create a database” in the SiteBuilder manual.
On startup, the WebCTRL Server initializes and then minimizes to the taskbar. You must restore the WebCTRL Server (Core) dialog box to perform functions such as
switching to a different system, restarting or shutting down.

To switch between Normal and Design Modes
Design Mode allows you to run WebCTRL without connecting to the control module network. Use this mode to verify links between graphics, to set up parameters,
schedules, events, and trends prior to connecting to the system, or to configure the system connections settings.
To switch between Normal and Design Modes:
1
If the WebCTRL Server, Core, is
not already running, click Start >
Programs > WebCTRL x.x >
WebCTRL Server.
2
Restore the minimized Core dialog
box on your task bar.
3
Click Mode.
4
The option that is grayed out is the
mode Core is currently running in.
5
Click the mode not grayed out to
switch to that mode.
When you switch modes, Core restarts
in the new mode.
NOTE You can also switch to design mode in SiteBuilder when running SiteBuilder concurrently with WebCTRL. See “To run SiteBuilder concurrently with WebCTRL” in
the SiteBuilder manual.

To log out
To maintain security, we recommend that you log out of WebCTRL when you have finished with your current session.
To log out, click the WebCTRL menu
button, then click the Logout menu
command. WebCTRL logs you out of
the system and returns to the Login
screen.
NOTE Do not close the browser’s
window without logging out of
WebCTRL. If you do, you are still logged
in, taking up a licensed operator slot.
This could prevent additional operators
from logging in.
NOTE You can be automatically logged out of WebCTRL. If automatic logoff is enabled on the System Settings page and the server does not detect any user activity for a
specified period of time, you are automatically logged out when that time period expires. The period of time can be the default time period defined on the System Settings
page or it can be a time period defined for each operator on the Operators page.
