VWcms kits may be downloaded from
or a mirror site.
VWcms installation comprises three main steps. These are covered in detail in the following sections.
Although not mandatory (VWcms sites may be located anywhere in file-system the server account has access) for convenience of resource mapping it is suggested that all VWcms site directories be located under a single root directory using a concealed logical name. For example
$ DEFINE /SYSTEM /TRANSLATION=CONCEALED VWCMS_ROOT DKA0:[VWCMS.]
The following file types must be mapped to MIME types by the server:
An update of VWcms is very similar to an initial installation. Just ensure that a backup of the site(s) is performed prior to update. Then install the new kit. Check the release notes for configuration changes, etc., that might need to be propagated to any existing sites. Execute the startup procedure (primarily to INSTALL the new executable).
Updating HTML editor
When updating the release of the HTML editor remember that browsers cache Web content and the files comprising this are no different. Of course a browser should be set to, and should, periodically revalidate its cache content. However it's highly likely that unless a browser's cache is explicitly purged after an upgrade a mix of old and new components may produce unexpected and undesirable results! Caution!
