Production Server Considerations
Before deploying your Logi application, review the following to ensure that your production server is ready to accept it:
- Do you have the necessary administrative privileges to work on the production server? Some of the following tasks may require it.
- Is the web server installed and tested? If not, install and test it.
- On a development machine you generally install both Logi Studio and Logi Info Web Server. You may also install both of them on a production server but it's not required. Just install Logi Info Web Server, which will make our Server Manager tool available on the production server as well.
- Check to make sure you have the proper combination of Oracle with your .NET Framework version (4.x). Oracle has changed its Java usage policies - see Java Usage Policy for important information.
- Does the production server have network connectivity with your production database server or other datasources?
- Do you know the appropriate login credentials for accessing the production datasources? These may have to be changed in your _Settings definition after deployment.
- Are there any corporate conventions for file or folder locations on the production server that you need to observe (such as, "all applications must be installed on the D: drive, not the C: drive")?
- Are you allowed to remotely access the production server using Remote Desktop, Citrix, or some other method? (This can be extremely useful when you need to run the web server's management tool or other tools.)
- If deploying with Studio's Deployment tool over a network, by copying or via a form of FTP, do you have the necessary security credentials to access the destination?
- If deploying by manually copying files, can you map a network drive that's been "shared" on the production server?
Once these items have been reviewed and addressed as necessary, you're ready to proceed with deploying your Logi application.
