web auth customized webgpage - changes how to upload


I have a customer that has already customized webpages on his controller, this is done in the paste by someone else. Now I need to add a customized page to the existing ones, it is for WAP, can I just download the file wap.tar file or do I need to download the full web auth bundle, and what with the existing files on the controller ?

You just need to upload WAP

You just need to upload WAP.tar file not the whole bundle.

If you have a Webauth bundle ( cutsomized) Then you can just upload to WLC.

Login to WLC GUI > Command  and the enter these details.


Enter these details:

File Type      - Webauth Bundle
Transfer Mode     - TFTP or FTP (I am taking as example FTP)
Server Details 
IP Address     -  IP address of FTP server
File Path     
File Name     -  xyz.tar(Name of the tar file)
Server Login Username      -  ?
Server Login Password     - ?
Server Port Number    - 21

after sucessfually installtion you must go to WLAN  click on wlan id. Security > Layer 3 and choose login page and login failure page from drop down box.

Hi, I think you can backup


I think you can backup the webauth bundle from WLC.


If you did not save the config on wlc after new tar file upgrade then reboot wlc without saving config then only you can have your old tar back on wlc otherwise it will be lost.
