Managing your Martini instances

Martini Desktop allows users to connect to multiple Martini Runtime instances concurrently; whether they are hosted locally, or in the cloud.

Embedded instance

The local instance present in the Navigator is the embedded Martini Runtime of Martini Desktop. This instance cannot be deleted.

To connect to a new instance, follow these steps:

Connecting to an instance

  1. Open the Martini instance manager by clicking on the server button (next to the search bar) in the Navigator.
  2. Click the green, '+' button. This will show the add instance dialog.
  3. Populate the required fields.

    Fields Definition

Modifying an instance's properties

You can modify an instance's startup and shutdown ports, and other properties in the file. To do this, right click the instance from the Navigator and select Edit Martini Properties from the appearing context menu. Except for the embedded local instance, remote instances must be connected and started before you can modify their properties.

Opening an instance's home directory

In Martini Desktop, you can open the home directory of the embedded Martini Runtime. To do this, right click the local instance. From the context menu, select Open Martini Home. Your file manager software should open a new window, displaying the contents of instance directory. From here you can modify configuration files, or back up data.
