Configure Server to Use MATLAB Runtime

If you did not configure the MATLAB® Web App Server™ to use a version of MATLAB Runtime during the setup process, you can do so using the webapps-runtime command. However, before configuring the server to use a version of MATLAB Runtime, verify that you have one installed.


Each release of MATLAB Web App Server is designed to support a range of six MATLAB Runtime versions. This range starts from the MATLAB Runtime version tied to the current release of MATLAB Web App Server and extends to the previous five releases. For details, see Supported MATLAB Runtime Versions.

Install MATLAB Runtime

  1. Download the MATLAB Runtime installer from the MathWorks® website or the MATLAB desktop.

    At the MATLAB command prompt, type: (MATLAB Compiler)

  2. Install MATLAB Runtime using the installer. For installation instructions, see Install and Configure MATLAB Runtime (MATLAB Compiler).
