The zip file you downloaded contains the latest source .ewd files for the EWD Management Interface application (aka ewdMgr). This latest version is 2.1, dated 28 November 2007.
- Make sure you are using EWD Version 3.0.639 or later
- Make sure you have your EWD Application Root Path defined in EWD (eg c:\ewdApps), and, if it doesn't already exist, create an application sub-path named ewdMgr (eg c:\ewdApps\ewdMgr)
- unzip the contents of the zip file to the ewdMgr directory, overwriting any existing versions of the files
- start a Caché Terminal session and change, if necessary, to the namespace in which you normally compile EWD applications
- Compile the ewdMgr application to the technology you require (eg CSP, PHP etc), eg:
USER> d compileAll^%zewdAPI("ewdMgr",,"php")
- In the zip file you will find a number of files in a subdirectory named resourceFiles. Copy all these files to the directory containing the compiled pages for the ewdMgr application.
Note: If you have compiled to WebLink, copy the contents of the resourceFiles subdirectory to your web server's root directory (eg wwwroot or htdocs).
Note: If you have compiled to CSP, it is a good idea to pre-compile the CSP pages that EWD has generated by running, eg:
USER> Do LoadPageDir^%apiCSP("/csp/extc/ewdMgr","ckf")
(change the path appropriately for your EWD/CSP configuration)
- You can now start the ewdMgr application using the normal EWD URL convention. The ewdMgr application's starting page is "index", eg
The URL you use is dependant on your EWD configuration.
Note: the scripts used by the ewdMgr application are included in the EWD routines.
If you are refused access to the ewdMgr application, this is because of the default security settings. Click the Securing EWDMgr tab for details on how to grant yourself access.
