Overview of the Website Directory Structure
The following list depicts the directory structure of the website after publishing.
[Outbox Directory] website name website folder xml folder index.htm site_index.htm assets folder content folder [page id code] folder index.xml [link id code] folder index.xml [link id code] folder index.xml [link id code] folder index.xml [page id code] folder qlaunch folder fp_upload.txt [property value] folder index.xml [link id code] folder index.xml [link id code] folder index.xml [property value] folder [property value] folder
Directory Structure Details
The index.htm file located in the \[outbox]\[website name]\[website folder]\xml directory is the launching page for the website.
For each page in the website, the application creates a subdirectory within the \xml directory. The name of the subdirectory is determined using a unique alphanumeric id code. To aid in navigating to content folders with an alphanumeric id code, open the site_index.htm file in the \xml directory.
Within each page subdirectory, the application writes a single "index.xml" file. The index.xml file contains the page information and XSLT stylesheet-linking information.
For each document or course in the website, the application creates a subdirectory and writes a single "index.xml" file within the subdirectory. The index.xml file contains the list of available publication types and formats for the content, along with XSLT stylesheet-linking information. The publication information in the template determines the link priority of the publish types and formats.
A "qlaunch" subdirectory is created within the root \xml directory. Within the "qlaunch" subdirectory, the application creates quick launch subdirectories, each with an "index.xml" file listing links that share a common value for the property specified in the template's publication settings.
If only one link contains a particular value for the property, then the quick launch page will be a redirect to the link. If multiple content files contain the same value for the property, the quick launch page will list all links with that property.
Within the "qlaunch" subdirectory is an "fp_upload.txt" text file containing an index of quick launch pages. Your administrator must upload this file into Help Launchpad to provide context-sensitive help for SAP R/3. Refer to Enabling Help in the SAP R/3 and APO Environments for detailed instructions.
The standard Windows folder structure supports folder names up to 100 characters. If you are using SAP SRM, folder names can be up to 200 characters based on the transaction code associated with the folder. In this instance, the website will take the first 100 characters, append a unique code, and use this for the folder name in the directory structure.
Transferring Your Website to a Server
To make your content available to end users, you must copy the entire contents of the outbox folder specified during publishing.
