The OpenCms 9 site manager tool
Session Start: October, 1 at 12:30
Rüdiger Kurz, Alkacon Software GmbH, Germany
Adding new sites or domains to an OpenCms installation used to be a tedious task that required editing the OpenCms XML configuration as well as configuring the webserver to recognize the new site URL.
OpenCms 9 features the new site manager tool, which allows Administrators to create new and manage existing sites with a simple GUI based interface. This new tool will automatically update the OpenCms configuration as well as the webserver configuration, without the need to restart OpenCms.
In this workshop session, Rüdiger will start with a default OpenCms installation and use the site manager to remove the /opencms/opencms path prefix from the URL. He will then add some new sites and domains to the server configuration. He will also explain how to adopt the standard scripts shipped with the site manager for other webserver configurations.
