Following the setup, the configuration wizard will be started. Due to the high amount of configuration options, it looks a bit complex at the beginning, but mostly it is self-explanatory and filled with useful default values.

FireStart Server - Basic


Name of the SQL Server (possibly with instance) with the FireStart database.
Name of the FireStart database.

Service Credentials

Login Credentials of the FireStart windows service (Hint: the account must have privileges to be used as a service account).

External Server (reverse proxy)

If suing a reverse proxy, you must define both internal and external (reverse proxy) Names and Ports. In this instance, simply leave the internal (FireStart) server value as its default and input the values related to your chosen reverse proxy server.  However, if  you are not using a reverse proxy - as most customers choose to do - simply set both the internal and externam Names and the internal and external Ports to the same value respectively.

SSL Certificate Thumbprint:
The thumbprint of the SSL certificate used for the data traffic of FireStart. With the “…” button a list of all valid certificates installed on the system is
shown. If this field is empty when closing the configuration wizard the wizard to create a self-signed certificate will be started
(see section “Certificate” for more information).


Name of the SQL Server instance.
Name of the database which manages the files. Has to differ from the one used for FireStart.
Path:Path of the file database.
SQL Authentication:Determines whether SQL Authentication or Windows Authentication should be used.
