UnitySync is web-based, so you will need a web server/browser to use the UnitySync User Interface. You may opt to use the included Dirweb utility or configure your own web server.

Dirweb for Windows

Dirweb is a licensed micro web server and included for your convenience. To use it:

  1. Navigate to the folder where UnitySync has been installed:
  2. Locate the bin folder and double click.
  3. Once inside the folder, double click dirweb.exe.

    NOTE: For ease of use, we recommend you create a shortcut from the file for your desktop. Name the shortcut the current version, i.e., “UnitySync v2.x”

While Dirweb is provided for a quick start, we urge you to configure IIS web server as soon as possible for long term use.

Dirweb for Linux

  1. From terminal, cd into the bin directory to execute dirweb. Once in the \bin directory, execute:


  2. Once executed, you will see a message that reads: DirWeb by Directory Wizards, Inc.
    HTTP Server listening on, tcp port 8080.
    Press Return to close this server.

  3. Leave your terminal window open. Your browser should automatically open to localhost:8080 to access the UnitySync User Interface (UI). If it does not, please manually open your browser and go to that location yourself.

Internet Information Services (IIS)

IIS configuration is similar for all of Directory Wizards products. Please refer to Web Server Configuration for complete details.

Apache, NginX, et al.

Documentation is not yet available for Linux web servers. Any web server used must support CGI. If you are using UnitySync for Linux and would like guidance on configuring your web server, please contact our Technical Support Team.
