Files Location

We recommend that you create a new folder in order to keep the customized files instead of leaving it all together with the original ones. On doing so, you will:

a) Have the possibility to get back to the original interface configuration, at anytime

b) Make sure that your files will be safe after a version upgrade.

You can also choose whether to place the files inside or outside the web structure. Read next, how each option will behave differently.

Inside the web :

When the directory that will keep the customized files is created inside the webroot directory:

1) The files will be accessible externally from a URL similar to: https://127.0.0.1/BrandingFiles/customizedFile.html

2) The paths to the files, indicated in the "WebAliases.ini", can be relative to the web directory. (e.g. "/img/ThinRDPSmall.png=BrandingFiles\MyLogo.png"). You will find other relative path examples on the topics Changing the logo and Customizing the web files.

Outside the web:

The customized files, can also be placed in any other disk location. In that case:

1) The files will be protected, because it won't be possible to access the customized files from a URL.

2) The paths to the files, indicated in the "WebAliases.ini" have to be absolute, as shown in the example below:

[Alias]
/index.html=c:/BrandingFiles/my_index.html
/images/ThinRDPSmall.png=c:/BrandingFiles/MyLogo.png
