Web Application Archive (WAR)
Magnolia CMS is also available as a Web Application Archive. WAR is the recommended way to deploy Magnolia CMS in production. The WAR file includes the CMS application but no application server or add-ons. You need to deploy it on an existing application server.
|Application server||Enterprise Edition||Community Edition|
|IBM WebSphere||WAR||no WAR available|
|Oracle WebLogic 10||WAR||no WAR available|
Deploying a WAR file
Deploying a WAR file on an application server is a procedure which differs from one server to the next. Some servers require specific steps to deploy Magnolia CMS.
Deploying a WAR file as a public instance
If you make no changes to the webapp before deployment, it will automatically be deployed as an author instance. If you change the name of the webapp to
magnoliaPublic by for example renaming the WAR file to
magnoliaPublic.war, it will be automatically deployed as a public instance. The name of the webapp folder determines the configuration that will be used. This is discussed in detail in WAR file with multiple configurations.
