Admin Panel 2
|Admin Panel 2|
Admin Panel Guide Note: This has been updated to reflect Uniform Server series 4 and higher.
With UniServer running, you can access apanel at any time by typing http://localhost/apanel/ into your browser address bar.
The following table describes apanel's main menu links. Most links are self-explanatory, however where appropriate I have provided additional information (follow the links). External links are off-site links and correspond to apanel's information links.

Note 1: When you change Apache port for example to 8080 starting the servers automatically redirects to apanel. To run apanel manually you must include the port number for example type the following http://localhost:8080/apanel/ into a browser address bar. If the port number had been 81 you would type http://localhost:81/apanel/
