Question:
What is the passphrase of the standard web instance?

Answer:
By default a web instance has no passphrase. You need to specify the passphrase manually using DocuWare Administration in the settings of the web instance (Change).
After clicking on "Change" you will be asked for the password of the DocuWare Organization Administrator. Afterwards you may specify the passphrase. It needs to be between 12 and 16 characters, e.g. 7T+TTX!80J%WNX2X
Restart the application pool of the webinstance after applying the changes.
Note that you can specify different passphrases for each web instances and integrations.
