Can anyone help me with setting up RoboServer and contexts? I need to publish online Help for different products using a folder structure like this: <product name>/<doc type>/<region>/<version>. My IT department have installed RoboServer and I can publish projects to it. However, at the moment I can only publish to content areas. What I need is the ability to publish to a specific folder structure. Can I use contexts to do this?

Thanks

Hi Jop,


You can host different Help systems by creating multiple contexts in Tomcat. Contexts refer to websites, where a project can be published. You can configure different instances of RoboHelp Server (on a single installation) to run on each of these contexts. These contexts run on the same IP address and port number but with different context names. By default, RoboHelp Server creates a single context called robohelp.


To create context using RHS:


  1. Select Start > All Programs > Adobe > Adobe RoboHelp Server 9 > Configuration Manager.
  2. Select File > New Context.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • If you want to deploy the new context in the root context, select Deploy In Root Context and enter a Directory Name.

      Note: The root context is a special, empty context path. If an application is deployed in the root context, it listens for requests on the http://<host-name>:<port-num> URL, instead of a sub-URL.

    • Specify a new Context Name and Directory Name. For example, you can have robohelp2 as the new context name and rh2 as the directory name.
      Note: To open an existing context, you can select File > Open Context.
  4. Click OK.

Thanks,

Sameer
