RW8 Advanced Settings (project settings) shows “Web Server Port”, Restart Web Server, and auto start. When hovering over “Automatically start web server on doc open” the “info” text says
If I open a project and do no Preview’s the server is not running when I view these settings. If I Preview a page then check these settings the server is running. Thus, I assume the “preview” server starts upon first Preview and then remains running until a RW “quit?”
I’m just trying to understand these settings (I can find no documentation)…
- What would be the practical value of starting the web server on document open (other than first preview being a bit faster??)
- What would be the practical benefit of setting my own server port “to connect to RW from a browser without first previewing my site.” as the help text says?
Thanks for any commens/input.
