General Overview

The production environment gathers the settings essential for the functioning of the published applications. In it, the APIs used in projects and connections must be configured. It is also possible to perform some configurations basic on your web server, such as setting the PHP timezone between others

The production environment can be implemented in two ways.

  1. Shared between two or more projects: In this case, the settings are centralized in a single environment. The advantage is the ease in maintaining the settings, since all changes will be made in a single place.
  2. Individually configured for each project: In this case, each project will have its own production environment with specific settings adjusted according to the project’s needs.

Both have their advantages and disadvantages and can be adopted depending on the infrastructure and requirements of the projects in question. The important thing is to ensure that the production environment is correctly configured to guarantee the proper functioning of the applications or projects published on the server.

Environment prerequisites

To publish projects and use the production environment, the following prerequisites must be met:

  • Web Server configured and compatible with PHP versions approved for Scriptcase applications such as:Apache, IIS ornginx.
  • PHP approved for use in the tool’s applications. Check the compatibility list on the Typical deploy and Advanced deploy page.
  • Database extension used in the project connection, enables the creation of the connection.

Accessing the production environment

Access must be carried out using the browser of your choice, as long as it is compatible. Check the list below.

The default path when performing a typical deploy is: /project_name/_lib/prod already in the advanced deploy the directory will be defined by the developer at the time of deploy.
