Configuring WebCenter Sites
After you configure the Oracle WebCenter Sites Managed Servers, you can configure a WebCenter Sites instance by completing the browser-based WebCenter Sites Configurator. WebCenter Sites runtime consists of WebCenter Sites and CAS web applications (WAR files) and the following components shared across cluster members: a config directory, a data directory, and a database instance.
Configuring Site Capture
After you configure Oracle WebCenter Sites: Site Capture Managed Servers, you can configure Site Capture with the Site Capture Configurator. You can also integrate Site Capture with the WebCenter Sites publishing process.
Configuring Insights and Supporting Software
This section describes how to configure Oracle WebCenter Sites: Insights, including its supporting software — Kafka, HBase, and Endeca. Insights runtime consists of an Insights web application (WAR file) and a config directory shared across cluster members.
Configuring Visitor Services
After you set up the Oracle WebCenter Sites: Visitor Services Managed Servers, you can configure Visitor Services with the browser-based Visitor Services Configurator. Visitor Services runtime consists of visitors-webapp applications (WAR files), a config directory, a database instance, sample bundle code, providers, and a visitors client.
Configuring Satellite Server
After you set up a WebLogic domain for Oracle WebCenter Sites: Satellite Server, you can run the Satellite Server Configurator to complete the configuration process.
Switching to External Authentication
For maximum security in production environments, Oracle recommends integrating Oracle WebCenter Sites with Oracle Access Management, for an advanced identity management solution and a seamless single sign-on user experience. You also have the option of integrating WebCenter Sites with an external LDAP authentication provider directory.
Setting Up a CAS Cluster
You can set up a Central Authentication Server (CAS) cluster in the same WebLogic domain as Oracle WebCenter Sites, in a different WebLogic domain on the same machine, or for high availability, in a different WebLogic domain on a different machine.
Setting Up a Cluster
For high availability, you can set up a WebCenter Sites cluster in a WebLogic domain with a primary cluster node on one machine and one or more secondary cluster nodes on the same or different machines. The first WebCenter Sites Managed Server you create is the primary node, and any additional WebCenter Sites Managed Servers in the same domain are secondary nodes.
Moving the Shared File System to a Database WebCenter Sites can leverage a database to store its shared file system using the Java Nonblocking I/O (NIO) API. This eliminates the need for a network file share in a clustered environment and allows file locking to be handled by a Coherence cache. Out of the box, WebCenter Sites defaults to a disk-based shared file system (local or network). To move the shared file system to a database, complete the steps in this topic. Steps for reverting the process are also provided.
Switching from Test Mode to Production Mode
After you install and configure an Oracle WebCenter Sites domain in a Fusion Middleware test environment, you can switch WebCenter Sites (and its component applications) to an equivalent production environment.
