Setup by stand-alone physical media
Overview
A setup by stand-alone physical media allows you to provide a media that contains all the files required for installing and running a site. The following elements are provided:
  • The files of the site.
  • The free 10-connection WEBDEV application server.
  • A Web server (as a MSI setup). The server will be automatically installed and configured.
This setup mode is ideal for demonstrating a site on a laptop for example.
A wizard allows the person who deploys the site to configure the different setup options.
To install your dynamic WEBDEV site, the executable (Install.exe) of your setup program must be run.
How to proceed?

To create a setup by physical media

  1. Start the wizard for creating the setup of a WEBDEV site ("Workshop .. Create the setup procedure").Start the wizard for creating the setup of a WEBDEV site ("Workshop .. Deploy the site .. Create a setup by physical media").On the "Project" pane, in the "Generation" group, expand "Deploy the site" and select "Create a setup by physical media".
  2. Select "Setup by stand-alone physical media". Select "Create a setup by stand-along physical media of the WEBDEV site".Select "Create a setup by stand-along physical media of the WEBDEV site".
  3. Select the files to install.
  4. Configure the automatic modification.
  5. Specify the site parameter.
  6. Specify the Web server to install. By default, the setup of the Apache 2 server is supplied in MSI format with WEBDEV.
  7. Select the information regarding the customization of the setup:
    • The setup tool used: WBSetup is proposed by default. WBSetup is a wizard for installing WEBDEV sites. This setup program is supplied in French and in English. In order for the setup program to support additional languages, the "WDSetup" project must be customized before creating the setup program. This project (supplied with the WEBDEV examples) corresponds to the standard setup program of the WEBDEV applications. This project is a WINDEV project. See Using a custom WBSetup for more details.
    • The default setup directory of the site: This directory corresponds to the directory where the site files will be installed (libraries, pages, style sheets, images, ...). The "<site>\<Project Name>" path is proposed by default where <site> corresponds to the directory associated with the different sites of the WEBDEV account to which the site will be associated. We recommend that you use pseudo-directories. This directory can be modified when installing the site.
    • The default setup directory of the site data: This directory corresponds to the directory where the data files of the site will be installed. The "<data>\<Project Name>" path is proposed by default where <data> corresponds to the data directory associated with the different sites of the WEBDEV account to which the site will be associated. We recommend that you use pseudo-directories. This directory can be modified when installing the site.
      The following pseudo-directories can be used:
      • <webroot>: Root directory for the documents of the Web server
      • <site>: Home directory of the sites for the WEBDEV user account defined by the hosting company. If an account is assigned to you, all your dynamic sites will be installed in this directory.
      • <data>: Home directory of the data files for the WEBDEV user account defined by the hosting company. If an account is assigned to you, all the data files of your dynamic sites will be installed in this directory.
  8. Specify the languages supported by the setup as well as the parameters corresponding to each language.
    By default, WBSetup supports French and English. To support additional languages, we recommend that you customize WBSetup. See Using a custom WBSetup for more details.
    For each language proposed during the setup, specify:
    • The introduction caption. This caption is used to start the setup in the requested language. It corresponds to the setup language by default.
    • The license of your site. The license must be a file in txt format, it will be displayed when starting the setup of your site. In order for the text to be displayed in the language chosen at the beginning of setup, a license file must be created for each language. The setup will be performed only the license is validated by the person who is installing your dynamic WEBDEV site
    • Readme file of your site. The "Readme" file can have one of the following formats: txt, htm, doc, hlp, pdf
      Regardless of the selected format, the user must have a software allowing him to view this file. In order for the "Readme" file to be displayed in the language chosen at the beginning of setup, a "Readme" file must be created for each language.
  9. Specify the generation directory of the setup. You can choose to clear (or not) the content of the directory during the generation.
  10. Validate. The setup program of the site is created. You can:
    • deploy the site (to run the test of setup for example)
    • open the explorer (to copy the setup directory to a CD for example).
