How to setup full ADC

To install a full ADC solution, please follow the following instructions.

Required Plugins:

  • Balancer
  • Accelerator
  • WAF

These plugins can be installed by navigating to Setup -> Modules & Plugins -> Add Plugins


Step 1:
Head over to the Balancer Dashboard and use the "Create a load balancer" wizard to configure your first Balancer.
Follow the prompts that are provided on the screen.

*Please note that if you use port 80 on the Balancer, that you cannot use it on the Accelerator*

After you've completed your first Balancer group or Frontend/Backend configuration, you can now start the Balancer

Step 2a:
Head over to the Accelerator Dashboard and use the "Quick Setup" wizard to configure your first Accelerator. Follow the prompts that are provided on the screen.

You may leave the default settings as is, but should you wish to, you may change them to suit your needs or environment requirements.

*Important note: You cannot use the same listening port as what was set on the Balancer*

Step 2b:
Navigate to Accelerator -> HTTP Servers (Frontends) and click on "Settings" on the new frontend you just created.
Next, you can enable a set of WAF options:

  • WAF Global Blocks
  • WAF IP Blocks
  • WAF Content Protection
  • WAF Triggers

The options you choose will depend on your requirements.

After you've completed Step2a and 2b you may now proceed to Start the Accelerator

Step 3:
The WAF provides you with a number of settings to choose from. Please refer to our WAF Manual
