Registering Server plug-ins
Much of the Enterprise Server functionality is provided through plug-ins. Before these plug-ins can be used, they need to be registered. During this process, the available Server plug-in folders are accessed and the plug-ins that are found are added to the database.
Note: Registering Server plug-ins needs to be done when:
Step 1. In Enterprise Server, click Server Plug-ins in the Maintenance menu or on the Home page.
The Server Plug-ins page appears and any installed plug-ins will be automatically registered.
Note: Because the plug-ins are registered while the page is opened, the process of opening the page can take a few moments.
Step 2. Make sure that the required plug-ins are enabled. If needed, resolve any conflicts.
Note: Normally, no conflicts should arise and no further action will be required after accessing the page.
Configuring a custom Server plug-in
Some custom Server plug-ins provide configuration options that can be set in a config.php file.
They can also add their own Maintenance page on which specific actions can be performed. When a custom Server plug-in for which such a page is available is installed or activated, an icon is automatically added to the Integrations page. Double-clicking the icon opens the Maintenance page for that plug-in.
Note: For more information about configuring custom Server plug-ins, see the readme.txt file that is provided with the plug-in.
