Integration with RAQ hosting system

This document explains how to integrate SiteStudio with RAQ to provide online site building services to your customers. In integrated SiteStudio, user accounts are managed by means of RAQ hosting system.

Integrated SiteStudio is available to all RAQ users. To provide SiteStudio only to selected customers, you need to install SiteStudio separately without RAQ integration.

After the integration, SiteStudio doesn't become accessible from the RAQ control panel. Users will have to enter their SiteStudio accounts by separate URLs.

To integrate SiteStudio with the RAQ hosting system:

  1. Install SS on the same box as the RAQ system following the Linux Installation Guide.
  2. Next, set the following variables in the psoft_config/masonry.properties file:
    USER_CLASS = psoft.user.SystemUserInitializer
    SYSTEM_RESTRICT_DIR = path to user sites (usually /home/sites)
    SYSTEM_USER_URL = IP or the host name of the main site
    PUBLISHER_CLASS = psoft.masonry.publisher.FilePublisher
    logintemplate = login.cobalt.html
  3. If you want to use SiteStudio plug-ins, you also need to edit the following files:
    counter_user.properties
    poll_user.properties
    guestbook_user.properties
  4. In each file define:
    USER_CLASS = psoft.user.SystemUserInitializer
    SYSTEM_RESTRICT_DIR = path to user sites (usually /home/sites)
    SYSTEM_USER_URL = IP or the host name of the main site
    PUBLISHER_CLASS = psoft.masonry.publisher.FilePublisher
  5. When you are through, start SiteStudio. SiteStudio login data must be entered as follows:
    Login: e.g. username
    Password:
    Url: e.g. http://www.somsite.com/~username/
    dir: e.g. /home/sites/home/users/username/web/
