Serving Multiple Repositories Using Web Server Access

The procedures in this section show how to extend the information provided in Enabling Users to Retrieve Packages Using an HTTP Interface to support serving multiple repositories.

The following methods are two different ways to serve multiple IPS package repositories using HTTP access. For both methods, start by creating additional instances of the pkg/server service with unique repository paths.

  • Multiple locations. Users access each repository by viewing pages at separate locations.

  • Single location. Users access all repositories from one location.

In addition to providing access to multiple repositories, remember that a single repository can provide packages from multiple publishers, as shown in Adding Packages to Your Repository.
