Sites

From the Sites tab in the Portal you can get an overview over the Weavy instances you have deployed and which version they are on.

Create a site

Make sure the deployment package you would like to deploy and any custom logo you would like to use are uploaded before creating a new site (see Uploading a package and Uploading a custom logo).

Navigate to Sites. Click the green plus (+) sign to the far right in the table header to create a new site. Supply the following properties:

  • Name - The unique name of the site.
  • Package - Select the package to deploy from.
  • Theme color optional - Set the Weavy theme color (in hex)
  • Theme logo optional - Select the custom logo to use
  • Name of installation optional - Give the Weavy installation a custom name. This name will be used throughout the installation
  • Authentication endpoint optional - If you are using a custom authentication mechanism, enter the url Weavy should use here.

Click Create to start the deployment of the site. You can follow the progress of the deployment and you will see a message when the deployment is completed.

Managing sites

Click the site name from the list to go to the details view. From the details view it is possible to start/stop the Web App, backup the database and trash the site.

Upgrading a site

Click Deploy, next to the version property. Select the package you would like to deploy and then click Upgrade. During a upgrade, the site will be inaccessible until all files are transfered and any database scripts are executed. You will be notified when the upgrade is completed.

Backup a database

Click Backup, next to the Database property. A backup request is sent to Azure and you will see a message when the task is completed. Database backups are stored in the container named exportbackups in the Azure Storage Account that you configured the Portal to use.

Trash a site

Click Trash to open a modal. Decide if the database should be backed up before trashing it, then click Trash to remove all Azure resources and configurations. Database backups that are performed just before trashing are stored in the container named archivebackups in the Azure Storage Account that you configured the Portal to use.

Accessing Weavy logs for a site

Click the Logs tab from the details view to see the Weavy logs for the installation. Click Download to download and view the log file.
