Enable ftp server

Post by maniachhz » Wed Nov 08, 2017 1:55 pm

Dear all,

I installed the OpenKM (Version: 6.3.2 (build: 8289) on Debian 8, anything is well except two bellow:

1. I want to enable ftp server, but it doesnt work. I executed command on the server: netstat -an
I didn't find the port 2121, can you tell how to enable ftp server?
ftp_enable_setup.png
ftp_enable_setup.png (5.29 KiB) Viewed 432 times
netstat_an.png
2. I create one directory under the Taxonomy for sharing with staff, the directory is just for storing documents, so i want to disable the document version numeration, can you tell me how to disable the document version numeration on this directory?

Thanks.

Dear jllort ,

Can you tell me how to disable versioning all files in the specified directory?

I want to create one directory which only for sharing, not need t versioning.

Thanks.

You can not disable version, but you can lock the documents -> that means these documents will not be able to be modified ( what is your wish ). You can do it automatically with an automation linked with some specific folder.

If you are interested in automation feature tell us and I will try to guide you on it ( you need some JAVA skill for doing it ).

No, acttually, I wish the directory like FTP, does not tracks the version. This way (not track the version) will save the hard disk space.

Any sugguestions?

Thanks.

I think you have a missunderstanding about how OpenKM works. Althought you watch files without version across FTP service, really behind it there's OpenKM what it stores document version.

What you want is to restrict a couple of files ( based on folder location or similar logic ) to have only a single version. For it you must use automation, you have two option:
1- lock documents ( prevent change the actual version )
2- purge history of versions after a document change

Both things can be done automatically by openkm with automation feature.
