source: trunk/gsdl/etc/main.cfg@ 1856

Last change on this file since 1856 was 1856, checked in by sjboddie, 23 years ago

Added Encoding and Language options to main.cfg configuration file so
it's now hopefully a little easier to add new languages and encodings
to the interface. Each interface language also now has a default encoding
so that changing languages from the preferences page causes the encoding
to change to a value reasonable for the selected language.

10# Outgoing (SMTP) mail server for this Greenstone installation.
11# This will default to mail.maintainer-domain if it's not set

14# resolve to a valid SMTP server then the EmailEvents and
15# EmailUserEvents options (see below) won't be functional. Likewise,
16# turning off EmailEvents and EmailUserEvents will remove any

20# Set status to "disabled" if you don't want the Maintenance and

37# LogDateFormat sets the format that timestamps will be stored in the usage
38# log (i.e. if logcgiargs is enabled). It takes the following values:
39LocalTime: (the default) The local time and date in the form
40 "Thu Dec 07 23:47:00 NZDT 2000".
41UTCTime: Coordinated universal time (GMT) in the same format as LocalTime.

43 00:00:00 1/1/1970 GMT

46# Log any events that Greenstone deems important in

55LogEvents Disabled

81# options are:

85# it will default to using shortname instead.
87# type -- The type of encoding. Note that for most encodings this
88# value is the directory name under which the map file for
