Modifying lyris.plc

The file "lyris.plc" contains the configuration information for the Lyris Web Interface. Here is a typical configuration:

    site=acme
    server_ip_address=207.105.7.133
    server_ip_port=2020
    socket_retries=2
    temp=c:\net\netserv\cgi-bin\temp
    lyris_url=http://207.105.7.133/lyris
    debug=no
    password=LCPPasswd

The lyris.plc file is found in your web server's CGI directory, in the same directory as lyris.pl is found

The "c" on the end of "lyris.plc" stands for "configuration". The program "lyris.pl" automatically looks for a configuration file of the same name as it has, with the letter "c" appended to the name. Thus, you can have multiple copies of "lyris.pl", each with different names. Each different file would have a separate configuration file. For example, if you want to make a special file for a "Acme Corp", you could copy "lyris.pl" to "acme.pl" and then copy "lyris.plc" to "acme.plc", and make Acme Corp specific changes to the acme.plc file.
