Explanation of changes.

  1. change framework host to the url of the running escidoc coreservice instance
  2. comment out server.webpath (only useful if running behind apache)
  3. change server.socket_port to a free listen portnumber (that you can reach from your browser (firewalls)

Start the Server in Development mode

 (escidocadmin-muster)escidocadmin@vm21:1 12:08:00 ~/escidocadmin-muster/escidocadmin > python start-escidocadmin.py

And verify in browser that you reach the escidocadmin server, and that the escidocadmin server sees the coreservice server
