Overview
The wizard for creating the setup program allows you to select the files that will be installed along with the site.
During a setup or update by FTP, you have the ability to compare the files installed on the server with the ones found on the development computer.
The wizard for creating the setup program automatically analyzes and selects the files that will be installed along with the site.
During a setup by FTP, click the "Edit the list of files" button to view the list of files taken into account.
When creating a deployment pack or the setup by physical media, the list of files is automatically proposed.

Files to install

Selecting the files to install (setup on a remote application server)

By default, the wizard selects all the elements required by the dynamic WEBDEV site to operate:
  • libraries (".WDL" files)
  • images and static HTML pages (_WEB directory of project)
  • style sheets (CSS files)
  • dynamic HTML pages (content of directories for project languages)
  • ...
For each file (or group of files), you have the ability to specify whether the file (or the group of files) must be installed or not ("Deploy" check box).
To specify that a selection of files must not be installed on the server, click the "Exclude the selected files definitively" button.
The "Details" button is used to perform a comparison between the local file and the remote file: size of the file, date and time of modification.
Note: For an update, only the new files (or the files more recent than the ones previously installed) are marked for deployment.
Case of data files:
  • During a first setup, the data files are automatically proposed by default.
  • During an update, the data files are proposed by default only if they do not exist on the server (new data files for example).
  • If the data files are manually added into the files to install ("Add additional files" button), these files will be automatically included in the update whenever an update is performed. They will be installed only if these files are more recent than the existing ones.
  • To avoid installing the data files, select them and click the "Exclude the selected files definitively" button.
