How to Set Up Multiple Instances of QuarkXPress Server on One Computer

Yes, you can do this using QuarkXPress Server Manager. To do so:

  1. With QuarkXPress Server Manager launched, go to the Manage QuarkXPress Server pane of the QuarkXPress Server Manager window.
  2. Click Add. The Add QuarkXPress Server window will display.
  3. Enter the QuarkXPress Server instance's DNS name or IP address in the Name/IP Address field.
  4. To specify and alternate name for the server, enter a value in the Alias field. The Alias value will display in the Manage QuarkXPress Server pane of the QuarkXPress Server Manager window.
  5. If you choose to use a particular ping document for this server, ensure the project file is in the QuarkXPress Server instance's document pool. Then enter the project's file name in the Ping Document field.
  6. Enter the QuarkXPress Server instance user name and password in the Admin User and Admin Password fields
  7. To restrict this server to one or more particular types of rendering, check the appropriate boxes in the Request Binding section of the Add QuarkXPress Server window.
  8. Select Enable to specify that QuarkXPress Server Manager should begin sending rendering requests to this instance.
  9. Click OK.

Note: You will be prompted to select the QXPS doc pool and logging folders on the re-launch.
