    • The port that will be used
    • Using HTTP or HTTPS
    • MongoDB Settings
    • Whether or not login credentials will be used
    • Default admin email
    • Level of server logs
    • Log size max
    • Whether resolution options will be allowed from the app
  4. Set up CleanMyOrg as a service.
    • Open a Command Console by going to start -> run and typing “cmd”
    • Go to the installs directory of CleanMyOrg by typing:
      cd \D your_CMO_directory_location\installs
      i.e. cd \D C:\CleanMyOrg\installs
    • Type: nssm install “CleanMyOrg Server”
    • After the nssm service installer has opened, click on the box next to Application Path and navigate to the CleanMyOrg base folder and click on cleanmyorg.exe
    • If you are using IWA Authentication for an identity:
      • Click on the “Log on” tab and select the “This account” option.
      • Use the account and password that will have administrator privileges to your organization.
    • Once you are finished making changes, click the “Install service” button.
    • NOTE: The service can later be removed by running: nssm remove “CleanMyOrg Server”
  5. To make CleanMyOrg available outside of this machine, you will need to open up TCP port 8000 in your router settings.
  6. Once the app is running in the background, open a web browser and type http://yourwebsitedomain:8000

This will start the CleanMyOrg client interface. From here you can set up Mail Settings by clicking the cog in the top right, and set up your Identities for scanning on the Manage Identities page. For more information on this, see Setting Up Email Options In Clean My Org or Backup My Org.
