Step 8: Providing Web Server Information
The Web Server Information screen lets you identify the following:
- information about your organization and web images
- information for the HTML page that the wizard generates at the end of the process
- output directory information that determines where Deployment Wizard places the generated files
The information that you enter on this screen results in the following URL for the output .htm file:
- ServerAddress is the address for the server on which you have placed the index file. This server address does not need to be the same as for your deployment projects.
- HTMLVirtualDirectoryPath is the name of the directory path that points to the web server directory in which you have placed the index file. This directory path must be the same as that of the deployment project.
- HTMLFileName is the file name of the generated .htm file. You supply this name in the HTML File Name box on the Web Server Information screen.
||Images do not have to be in the same directory as the project files. If images are not in the same directory, make sure that you specify the path in the Image Virtual Directory box.|
To specify your web images directory and organization name:
- In the Image Virtual Directory box, type the name of the virtual directory that points to your web images. If you mapped your output directory on the web server to a Windows drive letter, you can use the mapped drive letter when specifying a path in the Image Virtual Directory and HTML Directory Path boxes of Deployment Wizard.
- If you leave the Image Virtual Directory box blank, the images are automatically placed in the specified output directory. Consequently, all of the generated files and images are in the same area. If you did not map your output directory on the web server to a drive letter, you must copy or FTP the files to the web server.
- In the Organization box, type the name of your organization. The Deployment Wizard uses this string to identify your deployment project uniquely in the event that your end users have access to projects deployed by other organizations.
To specify web page settings:
- In the HTML Page Title box, type a string. This string appears in the title bar of the browser when end users access the web page. It is also used as an identifying string on any HTML index page to which you add this project.
- In the Background Image File Name box, specify an image (if desired) for Deployment Wizard to use as a watermark for the web page. Click the Browse Image Files button to search for an image. Any web-compatible graphic format is acceptable. If you leave the Image Virtual Directory box blank, the wizard automatically copies this background image file to the directory specified in the HTML Directory Path box.
For the background image to appear, you must have selected Active X Control and Specific Terminal/Position Size in the Deployment Settings area. For more information, see Step 4: Specifying Auxiliary Files and Deployment Settings.
To specify project output settings:
- In the HTML File Name box, specify the name of the .htm file that Deployment Wizard generates to contain the session link.
- In the Project Destination Path box, specify the directory in which you want all of the wizard-generated content (all of the .dpf files and the .htm file) to be placed. This directory can be a local folder, a shared folder, a network location, or a Samba or NFS file system. Click the Select An HTML Directory button to search for a directory.
- If you make the output directory a location different than your web server, you need to FTP the generated files (and any image files you have used for the background) to the appropriate web server directory before you can make the URL available to end users.
