Configuring storage for high-resolution adverts in Enterprise Server 9

Configuring storage for high-resolution adverts in Enterprise Server 9

Issue

I would like to store adverts on a drive outside of the Enterprise database but still be able to use them within the WoodWing workflow, for instance by placing them on a layout in InDesign.

Analysis

This can be done by configuring the configserver.php file and the WWSettings.xml file of Enterprise Server.

Solution

Step 1. Configure the following options:

  • File: configserver.php file
  • Name of option: HighResStoreMac
  • Area: SERVERFEATURES
  • Possible values: path to the location where the files are stored
  • Example:

new Feature('HighResStoreMac', '/Volumes/HighResFileStore/'),

  • File: configserver.php file
  • Name of option: HighResStoreWin
  • Area: SERVERFEATURES
  • Possible values: path to the location where the files are stored
  • Example:

new Feature('HighResStoreWin', '//MY_SERVER/HighResFileStore/'),

Step 2. For each client application which needs to have access to the files, configure its WWSettings.xml file by adding the HighResStore feature and the path to the location where the files are stored:

Important: Make sure to validate the WWSettings.xml file for correct content. See Validating the WWSettings.xml file.

<SCEnt:HighResStoreMac>/Volumes/HighResFileStore/</SCEnt:HighResStoreMac>

<SCEnt:HighResStoreWin>//MY_SERVER/HighResFileStore/</SCEnt:HighResStoreWin>

Example

<Settings xmlns:SCEnt="urn:Smart Connection Enterprise" xmlns:WoodWing="urn:WoodWing Software">
... 
<SCEnt:HighResStoreMac>/Volumes/HighResFileStore/</SCEnt:HighResStoreMac>
<SCEnt:HighResStoreWin>//MY_SERVER/HighResFileStore/</SCEnt:HighResStoreWin> 
... 
</Settings>

Additional information for Linux

If the Server runs Linux (with Samba for instance), the case-sensitive share '/Volumes/HighResStore' mounted by a Mac client becomes lower case '/Volumes/highresstore' (from the Mac's point of view). Make sure therefore that you configure the share with a lower case as well.
