Structure of this documentation

The structure of this documentation is based on the functions provided by the administration environments.

  • System Requirements and Installation: This chapter offers a brief overview of the FirstSpirit installation. Detailed, separate documentation regarding this topic can be found in the “Introduction (→Installation Instructions)”.
  • FirstSpirit Server control: This chapter describes the control of the FirstSpirit Server under Unix and Windows operating systems.
  • FirstSpirit Server configuration: The FirstSpirit Server is configured via configuration files located in the installation directory of the FirstSpirit Server. These configuration files and their parameters are described in this chapter.
  • Backing up and recovering the FirstSpirit Server: This chapter describes methods for backing up data and recovering the FirstSpirit Server.
  • Updating the FirstSpirit Server: Only a current FirstSpirit version can ensure that all FirstSpirit functions will be available and that the software will run as well and reliably as possible. We therefore recommend updating existing FirstSpirit Servers regularly and promptly. This chapter describes different options for keeping FirstSpirit up-to-date.
  • FirstSpirit web application configuration: Configuration of the FirstSpirit web applications – especially project requirements, configuration and limitations of the ContentCreator – is described in this chapter.
  • FirstSpirit start page: The FirstSpirit start page is a web application for starting the FirstSpirit editorial and administration environments.
  • FirstSpirit ServerManager: This chapter describes the project-wide functions which can be called via the ServerManager menu bar. The FirstSpirit ServerManager supports the general, administrative FirstSpirit tasks of the FirstSpirit administrator.
  • FirstSpirit ServerMonitoring: The browser-based FirstSpirit ServerMonitoring is used to monitor the FirstSpirit Server and displays current operating parameters (e.g. number of users, memory load).
  • FirstSpirit JMX Console: Using Java Management Extensions (JMX) it is possible to automatically monitor Java applications. The JMX Console can be perfectly integrated into existing, company-wide monitoring, if required.
  • Secure deployment via rsync and ssh: Combined utilisation of the external service programs rsync and ssh is recommended for deployment via unsecured Internet connections or networks with low bandwidth.
  • User permission configuration: This chapter outlines the mechanisms for user permission assignment and permission check provided by FirstSpirit and their precise application.
