Repositories

Storages

The storages are containers that LogicalDOC uses to save the files of your documents, these containers are not human readable and are handled exclusively by the system.

You can define more storages by using the button Add Storage. In order to change a specific storage, just double click on the corresponding row to enter the editing mode. Only one storage will be the one used by default for writings (right click on the storage and then select Make default storage).

 

In the same LogicalDOC installation you may configure different storage types

Warning

The encryption option enforces the security of your contents in case of intrusion in the server but this will reduce the performances of the system at the time to serve the files. So limit the use of this option when it is really necessary.

Folders

A set of folders store resources used by LogicalDOC:

  • exportdir: where the export archives are created
  • importdir: where the import archives must be placed
  • logdir: stores the log files
  • plugindir: where the plugins save their settings
  • userdir: contains resources associated to user profiles
