RavenDB version 2.0. Other versions:

The Management Studio

The RavenDB Management Studio is a lightweight Silverlight client to let you easily manage the data in a RavenDB server instance. Using the Studio you can view, create, edit or delete documents, manage indexes, issue queries, view the errors log, import / export, and more.

The Studio is accessible from any RavenDB server, regardless of how it is deployed. However, it does require the user to authenticate against the server, most commonly using his Windows credentials.

It would be wise to explain how to access the Management Studio. You just have to open your browser, have Silverlight installed and open your RavenBD server address on the 8081 port: http://<yourserveraddress>:8081

Actually, the default port in 8080, but yes, that is how you get there

Interesting, I have Silverlight installed but get the blue themed web page interface.

Go to the root url, and it should show you that.

Yep, I get the blue themed interface with a lot less functionality. BTW, I am reviewing for the first time today...wow, what a fantastic system.

Is there a way to configure the server to use a specific other port in case 8080,8081 are blocked but to use 8080 if not?

Sure, you can set Raven/Port to * (star) It will find the first open port after 8080 that it can

"The Studio is accessible from any RavenDB server..." This is a piece of text from above paragraph, Could you please tell me what is actually accessed by what? I believe Studio accesses the RavenDB server, am I right?

Am i right?

The language is a little confusing, but you are correct. The server instance provides a web-accessible user interface (the management studio), by default at localhost:8080. Said another way, the server instance can be accessed from the web-based management studio.
