Verify the Installation

In order to verify that your WebApp Secure appliance is processing traffic, use the following URL to access the appliance honeypot and confirm that it replies with a fake .htaccess.

http://<IP or Hostname>/.htaccess

The appliance should reply with something similar to the following. (Note that the actual fake .htaccess file might not look exactly like the example.)

<files "server_logs.txt">AuthUserFile /www/root/.htpasswdAuthType BasicAuthName "Error logs"Require valid-user</files>

Your initial WebApp Secure configuration is complete. The appliance is ready to start protecting your applications.

Note: At this point, WebApp Secure is configured to secure one webserver application.
