Login-free Access to Web Client

Login-free Web Access allows your company’s clients to access Daminion Web Catalog without entering the credentials.

To activate a login-free access, open Daminion Server Administration panel, click the Administration tab and select “Web Access”.

In the window that opens, select a catalog you want to give your company’s clients a login-free access to. Then right-click the catalog and uncheck “Login is required”.

The changes come into effect immediately and restarting the Daminion Server is not required.

By default, a login-free logged on user gets full set of Viewer’s access rights and can search and view, show all metadata fields, change the interface language and view collections.
To get an access to advanced Web Client’s functionality, a user should have an Editor or Admin user role and log in to the catalog.

Note: Each login-free access takes one concurrent connection!

Installing Daminion Server

  • Daminion Client Installation
  • Daminion Server Installation Guide

 

Install Daminion Server on a computer that will be acting as a server on your local network.

 


 

1
Start the installation process with the Daminion Server Setup file.

On the first screen, you will be asked for the language to be used. Daminion proposes the language, which is used by default in your operating system. If you prefer to use a different interface language you can change it here. Otherwise just click on “OK” to proceed. However the interface language can be changed in Daminion at any time later on.

2
After confirming the welcome screen and the license agreement, you will be asked for the setup type.
You can chose between “Standard” and “Custom”. If you chose “Custom” you will be asked for the Port numbers to be use from the Postgres database. But you can easily change this parameter later in the Admin Panel which will be automatically launched at the end of this setup process. So you can continue without any worries with the “Standard” installation.

Setup_Server_04_ENG

 

3
In the following screen you will be asked for confirming the Postgres login.
The default password is: postgres
Any changes can also be performed later on in the Daminion Server Admin Panel!

So just click on “Next” to continue.

Setup_Server_05_ENG

 

4
Now you will be asked for the installation path for the program files.
By default Daminion suggests: „C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Daminion Software \ Daminion Server“. You can change this path here or leave it at default.

Setup_Server_06_ENG

 

 

5
Here you must select a folder path for your uploaded files.

You can type here your preferred folder path or leave it at default. But please keep in mind, that you chose a shared folder path to make sure, that other users have access to this folder path. If you chose a local path, other users might not be able to see the files uploaded to such folder.

Note: We recommend using a different physically hard drive than your windows is installed at. This not only speeds up the file access process, but also makes it easier to backup these uploaded files. And finally in case you are running out of disc space you can easily replace this hard drive by a model with more capacity without affecting your windows installation!

Please read chapter Selecting the right storage scheme to be able to chose the right storage theme fitting your personal needs.
