Access the Railo Status and Administration
There are two admin interfaces to worry about. The "server admin" which defines the global settings and the "web admin" which defines the per site settings. For a good explanation of each goto here.
For a quick look at the servers status.
Set Admin Passwords and Update
The first thing I always do when setting up a new railo box is before I create and vhosts I login to the server admin set the password and set the debugging output to false. This setting can be overridden in the web admin on a per site basis but first we want to prevent it from being set true for each site.
Finally go to the update section and tell railo to check for updates and set if you want automatic updates or manual. I choose manual just so I can let other people test current patches first.
