Setting up the client

Start off by downloading the client suitable for your platform.

Double-click the MSI or EXE installer. Then run from the desktop shortcut or start menu folder.

Double-click the PKG installer. Then run from your Applications folder.

Although the Linux package includes a Linux XULRunner release, this might not work with every distribution. If your distribution or package manager includes a XULRunner 1.9.2 package, this may be preferable to the one supplied in our package since it will be geared toward use on your specific operating system. For clients 2.0.0 and higher get the corresponding 2.* XULRunner package.
$ tar zxvf SiteFusion-Connector\ Linux-1.x.x.tar.gz
$ mv SiteFusion-Connector\ Linux-x.x.x.tar.gz SiteFusion

Replace x.x.x for your version. Then set executable rights for the sitefusion executable, and double click it in your file manager or execute from shell with:
$ chmod 755 sitefusion
$ ./sitefusion

You can also run XULRunner directly or from a different location:
/path/to/your/xulrunner SiteFusion/application.ini


The branding is distributed as a separate extension (.xpi) in the downloads section. Extensions need to be installed in the user profile in order to be updatable. The Windows MSI installer and the MacOS X PKG installer do this automatically, but since there's no de-facto standard for Linux installers, the default branding (or any other branding) needs to be installed separately on Linux. This can be done in two ways:

Run the sitefusion executable like:
./sitefusion -installextension /absolute/path/to/sforgbranding.xpi

Have your installing process place the .xpi in the folder:
If you customized the client to have an alternate vendor name, the profile directory will have that name starting with a dot and lowercased.

Starting up

The client will prompt you for a number of options. Server URL is the URL of the server we just set up. So http://yourip/sitefusion. The example application is the administration application so in the application field fill in 'sitefusion/admin'. You can leave arguments empty. Finally, the default username is 'admin' and the password is 'secret'. This password can be changed by editing the file in the app/sitefusion/ directory.
