A full installation of Enterprise Server 9 is an installation on a system on which Enterprise Server is not yet installed.
What do I need to have installed?
As a starting point it is assumed that the basic server installation — operating system, network, and Web server — has been performed successfully.
What should I be aware of before I start?
Important: Use of MAMP/WAMP/LAMP not supported
MAMP, WAMP or LAMP are single-distribution packages for Mac OS, Windows or Linux that combine the installation of Apache, PHP, and MySQL. These make them potentially ideal for quickly setting up a new Enterprise Server environment. However, such packages are meant for development purposes and are not to be used in live production environments.
The use of MAMP, WAMP or LAMP for installing an Enterprise Server environment is therefore not supported.
Which steps do I need to perform?
A full installation of Enterprise Server consists of the following steps (listed in the order in which they should be carried out):
Step 1. Setting up the database
Installing and setting up the database for storing all Enterprise Server related data.
Step 2. Installing and configuring PHP
Step 3. Installing ionCube loaders
For security reasons, Enterprise Server uses ionCube to encrypt some of its PHP modules.
Step 4. Installing Enterprise Server 9
The File Transfer Server is a feature of Enterprise Server which separates files from operational data during an upload or download process, resulting in a higher performance and lower memory footprint.
Step 6. Creating Enterprise tables
Creating tables in your installed database for storing data relating to using Enterprise.
Step 7. Activating licenses
In order to complete the setup process of Enterprise Server, its license needs to be activated first.
Much Enterprise Server functionality is provided through plug-ins. These plug-ins need to be initialized first.
Step 10. Integrating SOLR
Solr is an open source enterprise search server based on the Lucene Java search library.
Step 11. Configuring Enterprise Server 9
Unlock additional Enterprise Server features, according to your needs.
Step 12. Setting File Storage settings
Control the way the data is stored.
Step 13. Reviewing security settings
Verify and optionally control the way the stored data is secured (internally and externally).
Step 14. Customizing the interface
Customize aspects of the Server and client applications, including localization, terminologies used, colors, and icons.
Step 15. Setting up a Brand
Set up a Brand for your publication and define Issues, Publication Channels, workflows, access profiles, users, and more.
