The STATIC Publishing method, other wise called as EXPORT TO DISK publishing method is a best option, especially when we want to export the files to the file system on the same machine on which the content server is residing. It exports the rendered html files (or any other files that are approved) to the location specified by the user. For example, if we want to export the html, css, js, etc files to an application server residing on the same machine as the content server, we should follow the Static Publishing method. In this topic, we are going to discuss how we should create a static destination, and how to publish (export) the files.

CREATION OF STATIC PUBLISH DESTINATION:

The following steps are involved in the creation of a STATIC PUBLISHING DESTINATION:

  • Login to the Advanced user interface.
  • Go to the admin tab of the tree.
  • Expand PUBLISHING -> DESTINATIONS.
  • Click on ADD NEW. The following screen appears:

  • In the “DELIVERY TYPE” drop down, select “EXPORT TO DISK: EXPORT WEB FILES TO DISK”.
  • Enter a name for the publishing destination in NAME field
  • The BASE DIRECTORY is the directory into which the files will be exported. For Jump Start kit, the following is the default location into which the files will be exported: <Drive>:\FatWire\JSK\7.5Patch5\ContentServer\7.5.5\export. If we give a name, a new directory will be created under the export folder specified above.
  • Select the roles which approve the assets for publishing to this location.
  • Select the roles which can publish to this destination.
  • Select the sites for which this destination will be available.
  • Click on ADD NEW DESTINATION button in the bottom.

That’s it, the publishing destination is created for Static Publishing.

In the next few posts, we are going to know how to work this Static Publishing.
