Validating the WWSettings.xml file
The WWSettings.xml file is used for storing various configuration settings for Smart Connection and Content Station. Each system on which Smart Connection or Content Station is run will have a WWSettings.xml file installed (see also Where can I find the WWSettings.xml file for Smart Connection?).
Validating the file
Configuring the file can be done in any (XML) editor such as TextWrangler or Notepad++, but it is important to verify if the XML code is valid when changes have been made. Especially when URLs are configured, the risk of adding invalid characters is quite high.
Some ways of validating the file include:
- Using www.xmlvalidation.com
- Opening the file in a Firefox Web browser
Note: Other browsers, like Safari and Chrome don't accept the WWSettings.xml file due to name spaces.
