Server parameters

The server parameters window (which is opened via Administration > Server Parameters) is divided in 4 tabs.

Each tab allow permits managing or obtaining information about the key elements of the server; these are, respectively:

  • Information about the availability of Auotmne prerequisites (Server parameters).
  • Access to files for Automne (Access to files)
  • The PHP installation information (PHP information)
  • Automne update management (Updates)

Server parameters

The parameters required for Automne are listed here; all these parameters must be checked "OK" to assure the optimal operation of Automne.

Server settings : check requirements

There are two exceptions:  PHP CLI and SMTP.
In the case of PHP CLI, Automne has a mecanism allowing it to set its own parameters.  In this case the scripts will be executed in a popup window.

If your server does not make SMTP available, you must disable the sending of email  in the Automne configuration.

Access to files

Access to files allows verifying that Automne has the access rights to all the files it needs  in order the function correctly.

To launch a test, click on "Verify" in the "For Automne" section.  You will  see the test progression and its results. 

Server settings : check files access

At the end of the script the following information will be given:

  • Number of folders,
  • Number of files,
  • Disk space used.

If one or more files are not accessible for Automne they will be listed.  You must then change their rights in order to make them accessible to Automne.

You can also test the access rights for users and visitors in order to assure that they have access to information on the site.

To launch a test, click on "Verify" in the "For users" section.  You will  see the test progression and its results.

For each file tested you will have its name and path, its function ("yes" to authorize access or "no" to forbid it) and the test status.


                         path and name of file                     feature   test status
File /var/smb/clients/access-v4-fr/www/automne/.htaccess (no) successfully writen

If a file does not have the good rights you must correct this to allow Automne access it.

If certain files have incorrect rights, certain features of Automne may not function correctly.

It is strongly recommended to verify the access to files before beginning to work on the site, in development or production.

PHP Information

This window lists the information of the PHP configuaration as well as that of the modules installed.

It is in fact a display of a phpinfo.

Note that the Automne update is effected with update "patches".

Before updating Automne please make sure that it has file write permission.

It is generally preferable to enable the system debugger before effectuating an update in order to verify that no errors appear after the update.
Generally, make sure to test all updates with a site test in order to avoid  any unwanted operations on the site in production.
