Multi Canvas Instance Maintenance

canvas

#1

Hi Guys,

If one is considering multiple canvas instances - what would be the best way to structure your project folders, to simplify future upgrades/adjustments to canvas?

For example:
In webapps, if one starts your new project by cloning the entire ROOT, one also copies over the admin and assets folders.

Lets say you have multiple projects:

When a new version of canvas is released does one need to upgrade each project instance individually?
Or would the install executable take care of this in some way?

Thanks!

When you upgrade canvas you should see the list of all your applications inside of the installer. There you can select which applications you want to update.

Hi @gpool,

And to add: there is a clean copy/folder of a Canvas application at the root level of where you have installed Canvas.

Look up for a folder named < CWAS dir >\canvas_base.

So just create a copy of this folder, and rename it to how you want for your application folder to appear on the URL and copy it into the webapps folder afterwards.

Cheers!
Paul
