Changing the Folder for the Web Server Repository

Applies to: Web Server repositories

You can change the folder used to store the packages that users access in the Download Center. By default, packages are stored in the software_installation_directory/packages folder when a Web Server is used as a repository.

To prevent access to the entire Web Server file system, one folder at a time can serve as a storage location for the Download Center.


  1. On the Web Server computer, run the qlogin command to log on.

  2. On the command line, go to software_installation_directory/Base, and then type the following command:

    qoperation execscript -dbn DM2 -c Web_Server_Client_Name -sn UpdateSettingValue -si 'WebServerRepositoryBrowsePath' -si 'path'


    • Web_Server_Client_Name is the name of the Web Server client.

    • path is the path to the folder on the Web Server where the Download Center packages are stored.

  3. To log off the Web Server computer, run the qlogout command.
