Do You mean that you don't want to use the name Windchill after slash? 

 

You would like to just use address of server?

 

If So, then you need to change a page "It Works" with redirect script,

But it will work just for browsers, not for Creo where /Windchill has to be used.

 

You should know small background how a Tomcat works. The /Windchill is a pointer to a web application

I remember when I install Windchill. I can change the address of the home page. But as you said, I need to make a redirect script. But I don't know how to.I've only used Springboot before. Windchill is a little bit tough for me.

Hi @guide_me 

Do you mean a welcome page? You just want to directly show Windchill home page with tasks and so on?

 

if so in Windchill 11.1 there was a checkbox to do not show welcom page again.

When I go to "http://plm.lightbreeze.com/" , and "It works" page will comes up by default. But now I want it shows the Welcome page up instead of the "It works" page.

Hi @guide_me 

You need to change an Apache html index page

apache index html : example location D:\Windchill_10.2\HTTPServer\htdocs\index.html

 

edit that HTML page and add following code:

 

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; URL=/Windchill">
<meta name="keywords" content="automatic redirection">
</head>
<body>
<h1>It works!</h1></p>
Web server Windchill is working. </p>
You will be redirect to a Windchill Home Page</p>

<b>Use following URL to manual login to Windchill : <h2><a href="/Windchill"><font color="red">Windchill</font></a> </h2></b>
</body>
</html>

 

 

Limitation> I don't think that it works in a Creo Parametric.

Although It is not a best way to solve my problem, it still a good way. Thank you for your help!

@guide_me 

You can study some others techniques but it is not so simple as a editing the html page.

 

for example here you can find some others ways how to do so

https://serverfault.com/questions/262927/apache-tomcat-url-without-app-name

 

definitely you need a test environment and also full backup
