For Standard Stack users, your Acrolinx installation directory has many files that you can update to adapt your Acrolinx installation. The most commonly updated files are the core server property file and the language configuration files. Edit overlay copies of these files in your server configuration directory to configure your Acrolinx installation. You can then update these copies with the settings that you want to change.
The following articles will give you an idea of how to use the configuration directory:
The following table lists the most commonly customized configuration files. All paths are relative to the server installation directory.
The properties file of the core server. Depending on your installation, your path might look like this:
The default language configuration file for all language configurations. It includes settings common to all configurations and controls how the server allocates the language configurations to language servers. You'll find this file in the directory:
A comment (a line starting with #) introduces a property or a group of properties controlling the same functionality. For example:
# language dependent resources for English
The property or the properties start on the next line, for example:
Each property has the form of a name, followed by an equal sign (=) and its value.
You don't have to add a space between the property name, the =, and the property value.
To disable a specific property, follow this step:
Insert a hash mark (#) at the beginning of the line.
Don’t disable a required property. Disabling a required property can disable the Acrolinx Platform.
When you start the core server, the server copies the most commonly edited files in your installation to the configuration directory. These "overlay copies" are empty or include help information only. The server creates these files and related subdirectories so that it’s easier for you to update your installation. The following overlay copies are created by default in the configuration directory:
server/bin/coreserver.properties server/bin/persistence.properties data/configurations.properties
