Step 4. Installing Enterprise Server 9
This is step 4 of performing a full installation of Enterprise Server 9. (See a list of all steps)
Step 1. Download the Enterprise Server application from the software download page.
Note: The name of the file is EnterpriseServer_10.x.x_Buildyy.zip, where "x" stands for the Server version number and "y" for the build number. For example: EnterpriseServer_10.0.0_Build100.
Step 2. Unzip the file.
This will create a folder named Enterprise containing files such as index.php, index.html, index.htm.
Step 3. Copy the complete Enterprise folder to the server machine’s Web root folder (such as webroot).
The location is dependent on the system and HTTP Server used (Apache/IIS), but should normally be in the following location:
- Mac OS: /Library/Web Server/Documents
- Windows: c:\inetpub\wwwroot
- Linux: /var/www/html
Step 4. Create a FileStore folder and apply access rights.
Note: The default location for the FileStore folder is as follows:
Mac OS: /FileStore
This is not a location we advise to use for production systems; it has just been chosen to allow easy initial installation. The location can always be changed at a later stage.
Make sure that read and write access is set for the following users:
Mac OS: “www”
Tip: A typical setup would be to create a root FileStore and create the other directories in it.
Step 5. Verify the following options in the configserver.php file:
The type of database used:
- “mysql” MySQL (default option)
- “mssql” MSSQL Server
- “oracle” Oracle
Note: Make sure that the values are in lower case.
The location of your database server. By default this is the same machine as the application server.
- Mac OS: ‘127.0.0.1’
- Windows/Linux: ‘localhost’
Type the machine name, not the IP address.
Use the following:
Step 6. Verify the following options in the config.php file:
Note: If a standard installation is performed using all standard paths with Application Server, database and FileStore all on a single machine, there may be no need to change this configuration file.
The Web server path of the Enterprise folder.
Default value: ‘/Enterprise’
The name of your Enterprise database.
Default value: ‘Enterprise’
The database user to be used by the application server. This is the single database user that is used by the application server to access the database. This database user account needs SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE privileges, plus ALTER TABLE privileges for the creation and deletion of custom properties.
The application server itself authorizes all requests for the user logged on via the Enterprise user tables which are completely separate from the database users. Default is ‘root’. For MSSQL Server you could use ‘sa’ as default.
The password for the database user. The default setting is an empty string.
The path to the FileStore folder (the root folder where Enterprise stores all its files). This can also be a mount point on a different machine.
- Mac OS: ‘/FileStore’
- Windows: ‘c:\FileStore’
The folder in which Enterprise stores temporary, export, and production files.
Important: This directory MUST be a child directory of the ATTACHMENTDIRECTORY.
The folder in which Enterprise Server stores temporary system files.
The folder into which all exported files are downloaded.
