Forum OpenACS Forum Summaries: Re: OpenACS Ad-hoc Core Team Summary for 18 March 2005

For the init script based approach for starting up AOLserver, SourceForge FR# 746579 Server instance controller process would be quite useful.

On a "Production mode" setting in config.tcl, that sort of thing is pretty easy, I do it all the time. (I don't see why it requires a TIP, though.) Probably more involved than implementing it is deciding exactly how you want it to work. Personally, I key my Production vs. Development vs. Staging servers off of the directory name where OpenACS is located, e.g. /web/mysite-dev/ vs. /web/mysite-prod/. That way it is entirely automatic, no editing of code required. But perhaps the rest of you want a different system.
