If your main connections server runs Java 6 you may wish to install the textbox.io services on a different Websphere server running Java 7+. This will enable the link validation service and the enhanced media embed service to communicate with the outside world over https.

Note that the spelling service will run fine on Java 6.

New deployments:

To customize the location of the textbox.io link validation and enhanced media embed service:

  1. In the <directory with uncompressed installation files>/config/config.js file, set "linkServiceUrl" to
    "<scheme>://<host>[:<port>]/ephox-hyperlinking".
    where
    <scheme> is http or https (prefer https when there is a choice)
    <host> is the host name of the server
    <port> is the port that the service is running on the server or leave this section out if it is the default for the scheme*
    so for example if your <scheme> is "https", your <host> is "mycompany.com" and your <port> is "9443" then the resulting value would be "https://mycompany.com:9443/ephox-hyperlinking"
  2. Restart the 'Common' enterprise application.

* Note for http the default port is 80, for https the default port is 443.

To return the location of the textbox.io link validation and enhanced media embed service to the default:

  1. In the <directory with uncompressed installation files>/config/config.js file, set "linkServiceUrl" to "".
  2. Restart the 'Common' enterprise application.

To customize the location of the textbox.io spelling service:

  1. In the <directory with uncompressed installation files>/config/config.js file, set "spellingServiceUrl" to
    "<scheme>://<host>[:<port>]/ephox-spelling/".
    where
    <scheme> is http or https (prefer https when there is a choice)
    <host> is the host name of the server
    <port> is the port that the service is running on the server or leave this section out if it is the default for the scheme*
    so for example if your <scheme> is "https", your <host> is "mycompany.com" and your <port> is "9443" then the resulting value would be "https://mycompany.com:9443/ephox-spelling/"
  2. Restart the 'Common' enterprise application.

To return the location of the textbox.io spelling service to the default:

  1. In the <directory with uncompressed installation files>/config/config.js file, set "linkServiceUrl" to "".
  2. Restart the 'Common' enterprise application.
