Last Edited August 14th 2013

Applies to: Triaster Server 10.1 and 11.2


This article shows the standard installation folders and the data folders which they contain.

Triaster Server 13.1 onwards

From 13.3 the mapstore folder architecture has been updated to give a 1 to 1 correlation to the HTML. The new set up looks like this

                    1 Draft Maps
                    Sandpit maps
                    Prelive maps
                    Live maps

This is in preparation for a future release whereby
 Visio files we be automatically transferred from folder to folder on approval of a process map.           

Triaster Server 11.2

Please note: The server roles for a Triaster server 11.2 may vary but the same folder structure will be maintained and the system requirements will remain.  This is to ensure that in the exent of a server failure a seperate server is nearly configured and ready to go to ensure minimum downtime.
