 Useful tips

  • The security setting for Internet browser must be medium for Web-Admin Access or the RoboHelp Server 8 site must be a trusted site.
  • Microsoft Access is not a desired database on production server.

Microsoft Access, accessed through the JDBC-ODBC bridge driver, is not thread-safe. This means that multiple different concurrent connections to Access will not necessarily work in a correct manner. In consequence, we can't have multiple connection objects open at the same time and, therefore access doesn't work well under heavy load.

  • IIS on Vista configured with Tomcat is not recommended as Tomcat ISAPI redirector does not have good support for IIS7
