Set up

After you’ve successfully installed and started Congether, you’re able to use it. To do that, open your preferred web-browser and open the specified and configured URL. In most cases this is “http://localhost:5000”. If you’ve used the predefined Congether-Stack for Docker, the URL is probably “http://localhost”. 

Navigate to the given URL, and you’ll see following page. 

Congether Setup-Page

The page is separated into three segments.


In the segment “Administrator”, you’ll be asked for an administrator-account. Please type in your administrator-mail address and a given password with at least 5 charachters.
