Installation for BadBlue is pretty easy and is self-explanatory, but make sure you read all the screens as you go.
Run the installation program, select the type of install (I would recommend you use normal), click next, select the directory to install BadBlue in (default is C:\Program Files\BadBlue\PE). Click next to extract all the necessary file(s), which shall also complete your installation.
We shall assume that your installation was a smooth ride and you had no problem whatsoever in the whole process.
Testing BadBlue Installation
BadBlue should run automatically if you selected yes in the last step of installation, which asked ‘Automatically start your web site each time you login?’, or you can start the program manually. Please note a little BadBlue icon in your system tray, which tells you that BadBlue is running now, double click that icon to open the BadBlue Server Window which can be used to change the HTTP Port (default is 80). You can also stop and start your web server from this screen.
Once you start the BadBlue server it should automatically open a browser with the welcome screen. If not, open browser, in the address area type the http://localhost/ or http://127.0.0.1/ (which is your local IP) to see if BadBlue is installed and working fine.
Here's a sample output on my machine:
If you see the welcome screen in your browser, eureka we have done it.
Go fetch yourself lemonade and pat yourself on the back!
