Default is to use HTTPS for the catalogue’s URLs. But HTTP can be used instead : /etc/mediatex/mdtx-COLL/servers.txt (see servers.txt)
However, both HTTPS and HTTP remain reachable. You can force HTTPS access if needed: /etc/mediatex/mdtx-COLL/apache2/home.htaccess
# uncomment to force https (no more http available) SSLOptions +StrictRequire SSLRequireSSL
Default is to protect contents by passwords. You can disable them if no more wanted: /etc/mediatex/mdtx-COLL/apache2/home.htaccess
# uncomment to disable authentication SetEnvIf Request_Protocol "^H" NO_AUTH
Default is to disallow
www-data user to lunch MEDIATEX queries.
However allowing him make possible to upload files via a dedicated cgi script shown on “cache” section of the HTML catalogue.
# mediatex adm add user www-data $ mediatex make
This extra feature remains protected by password even if authentication is disabled as shown before. The final query lauched by the
www-data user is configurable into the /etc/mediatex/mdtx-COLL/put.sh script.
