HTTP server not working as a service

Post by stt » Thu Feb 13, 2020 8:50 am

I can't get this to work. I'm trying to run Everything as a Service on a Windows Server machine. But the http part does not work. So will i need to create a separate instance for that? if I just install the client service and start it, http does not work.
Thanks for any help!

Does the HTTP server work when you run Everything as a standard application?

Please try the following:
  • Make sure Everything is not running and the client service is stopped.
  • Launch Everything as an administrator.
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab on the left.
  • Uncheck Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything (If this is checked Everything might be using different settings when running as a client service).
  • Uncheck Everything Service (The Everything service is not required when running as a client service).
  • Click the HTTP Server tab on the left.
  • Check Enable HTTP Server.
  • Click OK.
  • Exit Everything.
  • Restart the Everything client service.
Please make sure Everything is allowed through your firewall.

One step further! Thanks a lot! The http service is now reachable. "Uncheck Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything" made the trick.

But now I'm facing the issue that the directories are not monitored. I'm scanning every hour and "Attempt to monitor changes" is checked (see image attached). But when I add a file to the folder, Everything does not find it. Only if I stop the client mode, enter the UI mode, the file is found.

Rescan and monitoring Network folders should be working in client service mode, right?

Does the local administrator account have access to these folders?

You might either give local admin access rights or use a different account for the service to run under (under the Log On tab of the Everything Service configuration)

Found it. With the client service Network Shares cannot be used. Using \\server\Share it works just fine.
Thanks a lot for the help! Really appreciate it! This tool is just awesome!!!
