Controlling DataPA Setup from the Server

Top  Previous  Next  

There are two ways you can control the DataPA setup from the server:


1) Place the setup files on the AppServer

2) Place the setup files on a web server


First you need to copy the setup files you wish to share to the appropriate location. To locate the setup files see your current DataLocation in the Client Settings dialog box. Copy all of the contents of this directory to the appserver or web server. If you are copying to an AppServer simply place the files somewhere in the PROPATH of your appserver. Now all you need to do is ensure each client points to the shared setup files.


If you are using a web server, simply place the URL where the files are located in the DataLocation field. For example, if my files were located at, I would set my DataLocation to


If you are using an appserver, you need to use a URL that represents the appserver connection.

To connect to the AppServer through the NameServer, use the following syntax:






e.g. AppServer://localhost/sports2000





To connect to the AppServer directly, use the following syntax:




e.g. AppServerDC://localhost:5162/sports2000



To connect through the Aia, use the standard Progress Aia connection URL.
