Step 2. Installing Enterprise Server 9
This is step 2 of performing a minor upgrade of Enterprise Server 9. (See a list of all steps)
Note: In most production environments, the new Enterprise server is initially installed next to the existing server so that the new setup can be tested before it is made live. For this explanation therefore, the current Enterprise Server will initially be left intact and a new Enterprise Server will be installed separately.
Step 1. Download the Enterprise Server application from the software download page.
Note: The name of the file is EnterpriseServer_9.x.x_Buildyy.zip, where "x" stands for the Server version number and "y" for the build number. For example: EnterpriseServer_9.0.0_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. (Optional, only when Content Station Web or the Multi-Channel Text Editor in Content Station is used ) Add the files for Content Station Web:
Step 4a. Download the Content Station Web file from the software download page.
Note: The name of the file is ContentStationWeb_9.x.x_Buildyy.zip, where "x" stands for the Content Station Web version number and "y" for the build number. For example: ContentStationWeb_9.0.2_Build100.
Step 4b. Unzip the file. The file is unzipped as a folder with the name contentstation.
Step 4c. Copy the contentstation folder to the root folder of Enterprise Server (see location in Step 3).
Step 5. Verify the following options in the configserver.php file:
Caution: You must not just copy your old configserver.php file over the new one, as important modifications may have been made which are necessary to run Enterprise 9.
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:
Caution: You must not just copy your old config.php file over the new one, as important modifications have been made which are necessary to run Enterprise 9.
Tip: A quick way of implementing the necessary changes is to compare the new file with the current file to detect any differences (for instance by using TextWrangler).
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’
Important: This folder MUST be present in order for Enterprise to work. It is also important to make sure that the Web user has Read and Write access rights to this folder.
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.
Step 7. In the Config_solr.php file, make sure that the ‘SOLR_SERVER_URL’ setting points to your Solr environment.
