Publishing to Targets

A publishing target defines several key aspects of a publish. It determines which pages are published from the Site Tree and manages transforms to various user agents. A publishing target also identifies the directory to which files are published and provides a name to associate with the published files. Administrators usually handle publishing target configuration.

Before installing a new DSS instance, an administrator must first configure a publishing target within the Ingeniux CMS instance and then execute a publish to the configured target. Publishing targets must be configured prior to the installation of the DSS because in the publishing target configuration administrators set the path where the DSS will find the XML page, component, and asset instances and other meta files.
