How do I access the application?
Access the application by launching your Web browser and entering the URL http://localhost or http://localhost:8080 (depending on which platform you’re using and whether you installed the stack as an administrator or regular user) into the browser address bar. Note that the port number may be different if you already have one or more services running on those ports.
