Noob Server Setup Trouble

#1

First off: I have limited server experience, so please don’t assume I have any idea what you’re talking about. Second: My server is running Windows Server 2012 Essentials.

My problem: I have installed the Seafile server correctly and added it as a Windows service per the very clear instructions on this site that are titled “Download and Setup Seafile Windows Server.”

I have also added an admin account as it instructs me to do. When I open a browser and go to <server.ip.address>:8000, I am not presented with a login page like I expected. Rather, I get a response with some XML on the page indicating that I have not enabled metadata publishing. How do I do this?

Here is the exact text of the page:
This is a Windows© Communication Foundation service.

Metadata publishing for this service is currently disabled.

If you have access to the service, you can enable metadata publishing by completing the following steps to modify your web or application configuration file:

1. Create the following service behavior configuration, or add the <serviceMetadata> element to an existing service behavior configuration:

<behaviors>
    <serviceBehaviors>
        <behavior name="MyServiceTypeBehaviors" >
            <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />
        </behavior>
    </serviceBehaviors>
</behaviors>

2. Add the behavior configuration to the service:

<service name="MyNamespace.MyServiceType" behaviorConfiguration="MyServiceTypeBehaviors" >

Note: the service name must match the configuration name for the service implementation.

3. Add the following endpoint to your service configuration:

<endpoint contract="IMetadataExchange" binding="mexHttpBinding" address="mex" />

Note: your service must have an http base address to add this endpoint.

The following is an example service configuration file with metadata publishing enabled:

<configuration>
    <system.serviceModel>
 
        <services>
            <!-- Note: the service name must match the configuration name for the service implementation. -->
            <service name="MyNamespace.MyServiceType" behaviorConfiguration="MyServiceTypeBehaviors" >
                <!-- Add the following endpoint.  -->
                <!-- Note: your service must have an http base address to add this endpoint. -->
                <endpoint contract="IMetadataExchange" binding="mexHttpBinding" address="mex" />
            </service>
        </services>
 
        <behaviors>
            <serviceBehaviors>
                <behavior name="MyServiceTypeBehaviors" >
                    <!-- Add the following element to your service behavior configuration. -->
                    <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />
                </behavior>
            </serviceBehaviors>
        </behaviors>
 
    </system.serviceModel>
</configuration>
