The Main Domain data is stored in the Accounts file directory inside the CommuniGate Pro base directory.
The secondary Domains data is stored in the Domains file directory inside the base directory. For each secondary Domain, a directory with the Domain name is created in the Domains directory. All shared Domains in a Dynamic Cluster and stored as subdirectories of the SharedDomains directory.
Each Domain directory contains data for all Domain Accounts.
When a Domain contains many Accounts, Account Subdirectories inside the Domain directory can be used.
When a CommuniGate Pro system serves many Domains (more than 3,000), you may want to place Domain files directories into several subdirectories:
Domain subdirectories are directories inside the Domains or SharedDomains directory. A subdirectory name has the .sub file path extension (suffix).
Subdirectories can be nested.
Note: When the CommuniGate Pro Server starts, it scans the Domains directory and all its .sub subdirectories, and it collects the names and file paths of all Domains it finds there. This feature allows the administrator to change the foldering method (see below) without stopping the Server and without relocating already created Domains. It also allows the system administrator to move Domains between subdirectories at any time when the CommuniGate Pro Server is stopped.
When a new Domain is being created (or when an existing Domain is being renamed), the Server composes a name for the subdirectory in which the Domain files should be created. The Domain Storage panel contains the settings that control how a subdirectory name is composed. Open the Domains page of the WebAdmin Interface, and follow the Domain Defaults link to open the page that contains the Domain Storage panel:
Foldering Method: This option allows you to specify the subdirectory name construction method. The following methods are supported:
