Setup/Update

These options are available in deployment version. These options enable the host to allow and to configure the remote setups and updates.
The different options are as follows:
  • The option "Lock the server (for update)" is used to easily update a site by forbidding any connection from a new user. Whenever trying to establish a new connection to one of the sites found on the server, the Web user receives a message indicating that the site is temporarily unavailable, and asking him to retry later. The Web users who are already connected can continue to use the current WEBDEV site.
    Note: During an update by FTP, the updated WEBDEV site is automatically locked.
  • The option "Allow the connection parameters to be updated" allows the server administrator to authorize the customization of connection parameters when installing a site by FTP. If this option is checked, the connection options defined by the creator of the site will be taken into account. If this option is unchecked, only the connection options defined in this tab by the server administrator will be taken into account. The custom options will be ignored.
  • The option "Allow the remote setup of the sites" allows the server administrator to authorize the setup of dynamic WEBDEV sites on the server by FTP.
  • The option "Allow the remote update of the sites" allows the server administrator to authorize the update of the sites installed on the server by FTP.
  • Versions 18 and later
    The option "Allow the setup of sites with same name for different users" allows the administrator to authorize the deployment of several sites with the same name on different WEBDEV accounts on the same hosting server. This option is very useful for shared hosting.

Error messages

The "Errors" button list the different errors that can be displayed in the browser of the Web user. You have the ability to customize the error message and the HTML page where the error is displayed. See Customizing the errors for more details.

Log file of setups

The log of setups is used to trace the installed elements of a site. This log is very useful before you contact Technical Support if errors occurred during the deployment.
To manage the log of setups, all you have to do is specify the full path of the corresponding file ("WDInstall_log.txt" file by default).

WEBDEV accounts

The "Accounts" button is accessible in deployment version. This button allows the hosting company to configure the accounts of the different sites managed by the WEBDEV administrator.
