EditLive! 9 Documentation : Installing EditLive for RedDot

This document assumes that you have already downloaded the latest RedDot CMS Tiny integration from the Open Text Community support web site.  As of the writing of this document the downloaded file was called EditLive_Integration_7_5_1 HF1.zip

Unzip the EditLive_Integration_7_5_1 HF1.zip file to a temporary directory.Step 1: Deploying the Files to the RedDot CMS server (V7.5 / V9 / V10)

  1. Once unzipped, move the complete Ephox folder (not just the contents) from the temporary directory to
    C:\Program Files\RedDot\CMS\ASP\.  When done the Ephox folder is a child of the ASP folder.
  2. The next step is to place EditLive into its appropriate location inside the Ephox folder.  In the root directory of where you unzipped the integration you should find a " Ephox EditLive! Trial" folder.  Inside that folder there is a "editlivejava.zip" file.  Unzip that file - it should create a new folder called "editliveforjava".
  3. In the "editliveforjava" folder navigate into the webfolder -> redistributables folder.  This folder should contain a single folder named "editlivejava".
  4. Move the complete editlivejava folder (not just the contents) to C:\Program Files\RedDot\CMS\ASP\Ephox
  5. Move the file C:\Program Files\RedDot\CMS\ASP\Ephox\editlivejava\sample_eljconfig.xml to C:\Program Files\RedDot\CMS\ASP\Ephox\Configuration.xml

Step 2: Configuring RedDot to use the EditLive integration

  1. In SmartTree under Start -> Administer Project Settings -> General Settings you will find "Edit Settings" in the Action Menu (right side of the screen).  Click on Edit Settings.
  2. Click to select the "Use external editor" checkbox
  3. In the URL of external editor text field type in:  Ephox (not case-sensitive - and matches the name of the folder where you placed the integration code)
  4. Click OK to close the Edit Settings dialog

Step 3: Configuring IIS Security for the Tiny Integration

  1. On the CMS server, in Windows, open up Administrative Tools -> IIS Manager
  2. In IIS Manager, on the left-hand tree structure, navigate to: Web Sites -> Default Web Site -> CMS -> ephox
  3. Right-click on that "ephox" folder and select "Permissions"
  4. In the new window, click "Add". In the window after that, click "Locations". 
  5. For your location, select the name of your server and not the domain name. For instance, if your CMS server is called "ComputerName", then you would selectComputerName in the list. Click "OK".
  6. Back on the "Select Users and Groups" window, click "Advanced" and then click "Find Now" in the new window. You will now see a list of all your users.
  7. In the list of users, select the users to give permissions to: Administrator, Administrators, IWAM_ComputerName, IUSR_ComputerName, Reddot, ReddotUser. After selecting all these users, click "OK". (Please note: The suffixes for IWAM and IUSR will correspond to the name of your server as discussed in step 5. Please note that the name of the "ReddotUser" account may have been changed by you during installation. If it was, you will need to select that user instead
