The 4D Web Server has a special URL that will tell you if the web server is running. While you may think you have configured everything correctly, other factors (for instance, another web server running on TCP Port 80) may cause your web server not to respond. To check that your web server is running correctly, launch a web browser on the same machine and type in the following:

https://127.0.0.1/4dwebtest

If your web server is running on another port (e.g. 8080) you would type:

https://127.0.0.1:8080/4dwebtest

The test is successful when you see something like this in your web browser:
