When installing Microsoft SQL Server, create a new instance (Do not use the default instance). The Microsoft SQL Server default instance is not named and Sage X3 does not identify instances which are not named instances of SQL Server. So when installing Microsoft SQL Server ensure that you create a named instance. If you already have default instance installed you need to install another SQL Server instance for Sage X3 and it would be wise to create a separate and exclusive instance for Sage X3.
If you have IIS installed on the Sage X3 Application server then you will need to change the Port from “80” to some other port. When installing the Apache HTTP Server, it installs on port “80”, so if Port “80” is already being used it is not able to start the Apache service. The other alternative is to stop “World Wide Web Publishing” Service before installing the Apache HTTP Server. After the Apache HTTP Server is installed you can configure it to use some other port so that it does not conflicts with the default port “80” which is used by IIS.
Note: To change IIS Port in IIS 7 and Windows Server 2008 – Start IIS Manager – Right Click on Sites and select Edit Bindings from the context menu
Before installing the Safe X3 Web Server, you must login to Sage X3 using Sage X3 Client. When you connect to the Sage X3 Client it creates the folders.xml which is required when configuring Safe X3 Web Server. Note: If you do not log in to Sage X3 you may receive the error “Error when loading the list of folders”, File Not Found. It actually refers to the folders.xml
Apart from this do follow the Installation guide and we are sure you will be sailing safe through the installation process, it will be much faster and you will save quite a lot of time.
