cattaDoc main configuration

Use the built-in System Administration to configure cattaDoc for all users

cattaDoc has a built-in system administration function accessible from the main Search menu - it is marked with at wrench icon: . It is, however, only visible and accessible when you are logged in as a system administrator.

System Administration is divided into a number of categories, ref. below:

When you have followed the steps described under Installation you will - in step 5 - already have used the first part of User administration to define the first users in cattaDoc.

Before really using cattaDoc, you will have to complete the initial configuration in cattaDoc: Select System administation --> System constants under Configuration:

 

Define system constants

The screen, Configuration of system constants, is divided into two sections by a horisontal line. The upper part (except for the system name - 'cattaDoc' is default) is required, the lower part is optional. Optional means that cattaDoc will function with the default settings.

The first four constants after the system name were defined during the initial configuration. You need at least to define the remaining 9 parameters in the upper, required part:

  1. CDDOCROOT: Path to the document root, ie. for storing documents, as the operating system will see it, ref. The cattaDoc document repository.
    • Linux example: /srv/www/htdocs/cattadoc/cddocuments
    • Windows example: D:\inetpub\cattadoc\cddocuments

  2. CDWDOCROOT: The document root, ie for storing documents, as the web server will see it.
    • Example: /cddocuments

  3. CDDOCPATH: The current path below the document root, ref. above: The cattaDoc document repository.
    • Example: 2015

  4. CDLIBROOT: Path to cattaDoc library root, ie. for storing library files, as the operating system will see it, ref. The cattaDoc library repository.
    • Linux example: /srv/www/htdocs/cattadoc/cdlibrary
    • Windows example: D:\inetpub\cattadoc\cdlibrary

  5. CDWLIBROOT: Web server path to cattaDoc library root, ie for storing library files, as the web server will see it.
    • Example: /cdlibrary

  6. CDLIBROOT2: Path to cattaDoc secondary library root, ie. for storing archived library files, as the operating system will see it, ref. The cattaDoc archive library repository.
    • Linux example: /srv/www/htdocs/cattadoc/cdarchive
    • Windows example: D:\inetpub\cattadoc\cdarchive

  7. CDWLIBROOT2: Web server path to cattaDoc secondary library root, ie for storing archived library files, as the web server will see it.
    • Example: /cdarchive

  8. CDGLOBALIMAGEFOLDER: Global image folder (server path) as the operating system will see it.
    • Linux example: /srv/www/htdocs/cattadoc/cdimages
    • Windows example: D:\inetpub\cattadoc\cdimages

  9. CDGLOBALIMAGEWEBFOLDER: Global image folder (web path), as the web server will see it.
    • Example: /cdimages

You should now be able to use cattaDoc.
