In order to use QPR Portal, you need to have a web server software configured before installing QPR 2017.1. See the System Requirements chapter for information about supported web servers and consult the server's installation instructions for information about its installation.
Web Server Configuration in Standalone Installation
If the QPR package is the only software needing a web server on your computer and you are installing a standalone version of the QPR package, you may consider restricting access to that server. For information about configuring the Microsoft IIS web server software, see http://www.iis.net/. If you are running the Apache web server, see http://httpd.apache.org/. There is also a tutorial about configuring the .htaccess file for Apache at http://sniptools.com/.
