imperia's Administration Scripts#

imperia's administration scripts are intended as tools for system administrators. They can simplify common tasks and are executed via a call on the command line. The scripts are located in the site/bin directory of your imperia installation. Access via the user interface is not possible.

All scripts are located in the site/bin directory. This documentation provides an overview the scripts. In order to get a more detailed explanation, as well as a list of the available options, run the desired script with the -hbzw. --help option:

Use this script to rebuild redundant imperia data. It is also the final step in migrating the system.

Please note

site_rebuild_db.pl may take a lot of time, which is why it can be interrupted and restarted at any time.

  • For more information, call the parameter -h (for help).

In the following you find all options in an overview:

  • -m, --minimal: minimal rebuild, it is very fast.
    In this mode the documents won't be aligned, only the user management and the categories' information.

  • -A, --disable-autocommit: disables autocommit. This option must be combined with -m option

    Also, the with the parameter -A (deactivate Autocommit) the performance of the script can be enhanced significantly.

    Wichtig

    We recommend to do this in the Maintanance Mode and also to deactive Hermes.

  • --only-targets: rebuilds data for specified targets. eg. DEV,live1,live2

  • -d, --doc-copies-only: only rebuild document copies
  • -U, --no-um: do not rebuild User Management-related data
  • -t, --todo: Creates a ToDo list.
  • -b, --batch: Executes the ToDo list. Can be stopped and restarted

Possible Scenarios and site_rebuild_db options:

  • Upgrade imperia major version.

    You can use site_rebuild_db with -m and -U and -A options * Damaged sqlite file and you want fast restore

    You can use site_rebuild_db with -m and -A options. After this you will have working imperia installation but without all features If you want to use Document Browser and MAM you should run site_rebuild_db with --only-targets DEV If you want to have full working imperia installation you should run the commands which are written in the output of site_rebuild_db. This commands may be run together.

/cgi-bin/site_info.pl#

In order to get information about the imperia sub version.
