TITAN CMS - Upload Path

Method used by the Titan Workstation for writing uploaded files to disk.

Overview

Method used by the Titan Workstation for writing uploaded files to disk.

Steps
  1. Select the Titan Administration module.
  2. Click + for File Piles in left navigation tree.
  3. Click your File Pile folder.  *The right pane details for the file pile will display.
  4. Scroll to Upload Type.
  5. Select Direct File or Remote  HTTP.
  6. Method used by the Titan Workstation for writing uploaded files to disk. Values are:
    1. Direct File indicates that the root path to the files is accessible through a simple Windows file path. This includes a path located on the web server or a path accessible with a UNC name (e.g., \\MyServer\FileShare. This is the preferred, most efficient, and most reliable method.

      If selected, the Upload Path variable should be the path to the file root. It should not contain a trailing slash. The webserver account must have read, write, and create access to the root directory. Examples:
          c:\My\Path\To\Image\Root
          \\MyServer\FileShare\My\Path\To\Image\Root
       
    2. Remote HTTP indicates that the root path for file storage is only accessible via HTTP. This option is significantly slower than the Direct File method. This option would only be used in highly secure sites that need to restrict the number of ports between the web server and the file server. It may also be used by non-Windows storage servers that do not support SMB.

      If selected, the Upload Path variable should be the full HTTP path to a page on the server. The remote page will receive an HTML form variable named UploadFile that contains the database-derived folder and file name in addition to the file contents. It is then, the responsibility of the page to write the file into its storage location.
  7. Enter the Upload Path.  *Example  C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Titan\ImageLibrary\
  8. Click Save from the Page Action Bar to retain changes.
  9. Click Refresh Site State.
