Configuring Optional Components

The installation process on Windows includes the following steps:

  1. Run the Setup Wizard
  2. Use the FileCloud Control Panel to configure servers
  3. Use the FileCloud Control Panel to configure optional components
  4. Complete Post Installation Steps

Install Optional Components

After a successful installation check, the basic FileCloud service is ready.

Before running post-installation checks on everything that is installed, you can add any of the following optional services to include them in the post-installation verifications:

  • Push Service - Open two-way connection for certain client-server processes to improve response time.
  • FileCloud Helper - Enables certain searches and NTFS checks on Network Folders.
  • Memcache - Improves performance when using Network Folders with NTFS permissions.
  • Document Preview - Enables previewing of document contents.
  • Content Search - Enables you to index and search the contents of files.

Because these components are optional, they can be added or removed at any time from the FileCloud Control Panel.

Administrators can enable content search to provides users with the following features:

  • Content search for file types such as txt, pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx
  • Regex support for file/folder name searches

Content Search uses Solr, and Solr in turn uses Java.

(warning) Before installing Content Search, you must install the correct Java Development Kit (JDK).

Installing Content Search

FileCloud Helper, Memcache, and Document preview do not require any pre-installation steps.

To install and start any of these optional services:

  1. In the FileCloud Control Panel, click the Install or Make Service link next to the service.
  2. On the Service Installed OK window, click OK.
  3. In the FileCloud Control Panel, click the Start button for the service.
  4. In the control panel, verify that Running or Running SVC appears next to the service.
