Web interfaces allow users to control and interact with their XBMC/Kodi installation through a web browser. This can be used for a remote control, library management, visual feedback, and many other things.

1 Turning on the web interface

The webserver is disabled by default and has to be manually enabled by the user. This can be done in Settings → Services → Webserver → Allow control of XBMC/Kodi via HTTP. The settings allow to specify a custom port number and an optional username and password for HTTP's Basic Access Authentication. Furthermore a Web interface can be chosen which will be used when accessing the webserver without any specific path.

2 Using multiple web interfaces at once

Let's say http://123.4.5.6:8080 is your local IP for accessing your default web interface add-on. You can access the other web interface add-ons you have installed by going to http://123.4.5.6:8080/addons/ where you will see a directory listing.
