Changing the Global Repository Data Directory and Port

Article ID: 789  |  Last updated: 23 Dec, 2014

Note: This information only applies to QA Wizard Pro 2011.0 and earlier.

By default, the QA Wizard Pro application repository data is saved in [drive]:\QAWRepository, where [drive] is the drive letter of the installation path. For example, if you installed the product in C:\Program Files\Seapine\QA Wizard Pro, then the QAWRepository data is stored in C:\QAWRepository. 

You can customize the location that the repository data is stored in. Inside the QA Wizard Pro installation directory is a file named QAWRepositoryConfig.xml. This file allows you to change the default directory location and the QAWRepository port.

  1. Stop the QAWRepository server (Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services).
  2. Open QAWRepositoryConfig.xml with Notepad or another editor.
  3. To change the default data directory, locate the following line: DEFAULT.
  4. Replace DEFAULT with the path you want to use (e.g., D:\QAWRepository).
  5. To change the port number, locate the following line: 8002.
    If you change the port number, users must also change the port number they are connecting to. In QA Wizard Pro, choose Tools > Options > Global Repository tab.
  6. Replace 8002 with the server port number you want to use.
  7. Save the file and restart the QAWRepository service.
