    How to be sure what instance (Test or Prod) I'm connected to with port 80?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Our Test and Prod are different instances on the same server. We just changed Prod Web to connect to port 80 rather than 8991. I can get to ALEPH files via telnet port 22 and Putty.

    If I select the Production region, is it the same files that we see when accessing the OPAC?

    When you choose Production with putty, you are connecting to the abc1-18(1) instance (/exlibris/aleph/a18_1... and /exlibris/aleph/u18_1...)
    When you choose Test, you are connecting to the abc1-18(2) instance (/exlibris/aleph/a18_2... and /exlibris/aleph/u18_2...)

    When you connect to you are connecting to Prod.
    When you connect to you are connecting to Test.

    If you have any doubt about this, do this:

    1. Do a search for "tropical" in

    2. Connect to the Prod abc1-18(1) instance with putty and do "cd $LOGDIR"
    Then: view www_server_4991.log
    then: search in the log for tropical (" /tropical ").
    It will position on the line where the "tropical" search was entered.
