Following is a checklist of activities you should complete before going live with a new instance of SuperWEB2:
|SuperSERVER performance configuration
|Follow the advice on Performance Considerations - SuperSERVER to configure SuperSERVER performance to make best use of the available processing capacity on the server.
|Performance Considerations - SuperSERVER
|Confirm that only the minimum set of required ports have been opened, in line with the port usage documentation.
|Tomcat RAM usage (SuperWEB2)
|The supplied scripts for running Tomcat are set to use only 4GB of RAM. You should increase this to take advantage of the available RAM on the server running Tomcat.
|JVM Startup Recommendations
|Using a relational database to store SuperADMIN data is strongly recommended.
|Use a Relational Database to store SuperADMIN data
|Default user accounts
|SuperSTAR is supplied with several default user accounts. You must change the passwords (or delete these accounts) before going live.
|Default User Accounts
|Guest user account
|Guest access to SuperWEB2 is enabled by default: confirm whether you want to allow guest access and set permissions appropriately so that guests users can see the correct set of datasets.
|Configure Guest Access
|SuperWEB2 User Data Repository
|By default, SuperWEB2 is configured to use a file-based storage system for user data such as saved tables. This is not recommended for production use and you should configure a relational database for the User Data Repository.
|User Data Repository
|Configure audit logging
Audit logging provides detailed information about everything that happens on your system. SuperSERVER audit logging is enabled by default, but SuperADMIN, SuperWEB2 and other components will not write audit logs unless you enable this feature.
Note that if you are using a reverse proxy then you will likely need to do some additional configuration to ensure that the audit logs capture the end user's IP address, rather than the gateway IP address. See Configure Reverse Proxy and Audit Logging for more details.
|Branding and customisation
SuperWEB2 can be extensively customised to fit with your organisation's branding. Review and update the following:
If you decide to use the user registration system, make sure that you:
|Configure User Registration
|Update the search index
|SuperWEB2's search feature uses a pre-built search index. This index needs to be regenerated every time you make any changes to the datasets in the catalogue.
