SiteX is an easy to use Content Management System (CMS) that enables you to create a dynamic website without programming. It comes with components such as a journal (blog), photo gallery, calendar and forum, as well as a number of themes that can be customised from within the administration interface. The site's components can be enabled and disabled from the administration interface if required, making it easy to cut out any parts you do not require.
You can install SiteX by issuing the following commands from the SME Server shell:
yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-sitex signal-event post-upgrade ; signal-event reboot
To configure SiteX, start your browser with the URL http://servername/sitex and complete the forms. Be sure to write down the administration account name and password, as you will need these to administer your website.
Finally, you must go to the Site Preferences administration panel and set the FQDN from which your site will be accessed, e.g. http://www.mysmedomain.com/sitex. By default, SiteX enters your unqualified servername as the URL, e.g. http://server/sitex, making external resolution by visitors impossible.
Once SiteX is fully configured, run the following command from the SME Server shell to delete the setup files:
Upgrading SiteX requires a little work.
1. First, put your site into Maintenance Mode.
2. Issue the following command from the SME Server console:
yum --enablerepo=smecontribs update smeserver-sitex sitex signal-event post-upgrade ; signal-event reboot
3. After the server has rebooted, open your browser to http://servername/sitex to run the upgrade.
4. Once the upgrade is finished, delete the setup files by running the following command from the shell:
5. Finally, log back in to your site from http://servername/sitex/login.php and disable Maintenance Mode.
- You can fine tune access to SiteX by using the e-smith database.
