In a multi-user installation, the Developer application files are installed on a server, and a virtual directory is created on a web site. The web site is necessary so that the content authors can connect to the server through the HTTP protocol. This allows content authors to connect to the server from remote locations through a client installation. During installation, you can choose to install the client on the server as well.
A multi-user installation also requires a database server for the content Library. The database server and the web server do not need to be on the same computer. The installation process can create the database and all necessary tables on the specified server, or you can also run scripts to install the database manually.
Note: The web server and the database server must be in the same local network.
Before you begin the installation, you should decide whether you will use the scripts to create the database manually or use the installer software to create the database automatically. If you choose to install the database using the scripts, refer to the Install the Database Manually section, following this topic. If you choose to let the installer create the database, refer to the Install the Server section.
Note: If you choose to install the database and the server separately, you must install the database first.
