SITE application administration


TheSITE administration area Ametys is a web interface used to perform SITE application administration tasks. In particular, this is where you can manage site users (or front-office users) and enter a few application-specific configuration parameters.

To access the SITE administration interface, enterURL in your browser's address bar:


This means entering the address of your back office( CMS) followed by '/_admin'.

All the information and settings in this Administrator Area relate to the SITE application. Thus, even if the functionalities are sometimes the same as those documented for the Administrator Area of the CMS application, the data manipulated here are those of the SITE application.
For example, the logs that can be exploited are those of the SITE application and have no relation to those of the CMS application.

This page details the features specific to the SITE administration interface and any differences with the general documentation (that of the CMS application).

In the Cache category,

  • Section Enable cache statisticsIf you decide to activate statistics, specify :
    • The list of HTTP server access log files (Apache HTTPD...) to be monitored. The various paths must be separated by commas. These files will be used to produce meaningful statistics on cache usage.
    • The data source to be used as a monitoring database. It will be used to store monitoring statistics for this site. This database must be shared with CMS, and its value will be automatically synchronized with that of CMS.


  • In the Directories section, specify the maximum number of characters for file names in the cache.

Don't change this value unless you're sure you understand the implications. The wrong value may prevent pages with long names from being displayed, or reduce cache performance.
