Can not locate Web Services


Not applicable

After i installed the latest LifeCycle (trial version) i can not locate the web service urls.

The documentation says that my .NET project can consume WSDLs from this location

http://localhost:8080/soap/services/SignatureService?wsdl but i get errors saying can't find that page.

What else do i need to do post install to be able to invoke this web service?

Thanks for your help

Are you able to access the Administration UI?


If not, if you are running on Windows do you have localhost defined in your hosts file? You have to map localhost to the loopback IP address

In C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts you need the following entry: localhost

Steve thanks for the info.

Unfortunately my hosts file is correct and i am still not able to get in to adminui.

Let me say that when i first installed LifeCycle i didn't configure anything the way i should have. (duh!)

Second time i installed i configured most componenets and got stuck on the server setup.

I was having issues resolving SSL when entering a servername/port/appserver folder/etc... .

I left it on at night and in the AM my computer was updated and rebooted.

Is there any way to get back to that screen?

If not and i have to reinstall again thats fine, but i am still having an issue with the SSL.

I am using WebSphere.

thanks for any info

If you are using websphere the port will not be 8080 (that is for JBoss)...try port 9080.

my tomcat is on 8080

tried 9080 and nothing...

any other ideas where i can go to configure the server?

thanks for all the help

Do you have your own web server on that machine? The appserver will install its own web server as well. Could be a port conflict.

i have a web sphere app sever and tomcat installed

i am a MS guy 🙂 so i am not well rounded with ibm/java based systems

what would be your next step?


Level 10
What port did you set up the websphere server for.


Not applicable
well, i can access the admin tool on 9045

however when i tried to do the whole http:\\localhost:9045\adminui

i got a message the page couldn't be found

...reinstalling at the moment

I am currently at the Application Server Configuration Details screen.

Can't verify the connection.

Try 9040 .....Websphere uses a different port for admin versus regular use.
