To install Newired, you need to know which are its components and how to install each one of them.
Newired Journeys and Tips are distributed as an on-site application which can be installed on a personal computer for evaluation purposes, and on a dedicated server for production environments. Newired Journeys has three components:
I. The Portal: a server-side component with web access which hosts and manages user-defined Journeys and their content for specific Sites.
II. The Editor: a stand-alone desktop application for Windows or MacOS, which is to be installed on a personal computer and connected to Newired Server. It is used by Journey and Tip authors to create them and develop their content.
THE INSTALLATION PROCESS
1. The first step for the installation is to install the Portal. This can normally be done by an IT administrator or power user of the server. The files for this installation should be downloaded from https://download.newired.com/ . To get your login details, please refer to your account manager at Newired.
2. Once the server is up and running, the Editor needs to be installed on the workstations of all users who will use it to author Journeys and/or Tips. Unless your company policy prohibits it, these users should be able to perform the installation. The installation file for the editor is available for download on the portal, once it is running.
3. Once the Journey author users have created some Sites and Journeys for those Sites, the Launcher script code will be available from the Publish tab of any Site. The script needs to be deployed to the base-application server before any Journeys are published. (End users need the Launcher to be able to access published Journeys.) Depending on the procedure adopted, either authors may be able to deploy the launcher, or a web developer or IT administrator may need to do so.For more information, check the article on Content Deployment.
For each of theses phases, there is an explanatory article.
