General parameters

Configuration files

The default configuration file is conf/config.inc.php, it contains all default values. To edit configuration, you should create conf/config.inc.local.php and override needed parameters:

<?php
// Override config.inc.php parameters below

?>

Warning

Do not copy config.inc.php into config.inc.local.php, as the first one includes the second. You would then create an infinite loop and crash your application.

Multi tenancy

You can load a specific configuration file by passing a HTTP header. This feature is disable by default. To enable it:

$header_name_extra_config = "SSP-Extra-Config";

Then if you send the header SSP-Extra-Config: domain1, the file conf/config.inc.domain1.php will be loaded.

Using Apache, we may set such header using the following:

<VirtualHost *:80>
   ServerName ssp.domain1.com
   RequestHeader setIfEmpty SSP-Extra-Config domain1
   [...]
</VirtualHost>

Using Nginx, we could use instead:

server {
    [...]
    location ~ \.php {
        fastcgi_param SSP-Extra-Config domain1;
        [...]
    }

Language

Tip

Lang is selected from browser configuration. If no matching language is found, the default language is used.

Set default language in $lang:

$lang = "en";

Tip

You can override messages by creating lang files in conf/, for example conf/en.inc.php.

Dates

You can adapt how dates are displayed with specifiers (see strftime reference):

$date_specifiers = "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S (%Z)";

Graphics

Background

You change the background image with your own. Set the path to image in $background_image:

$background_image = "images/unsplash-space.jpeg";

Custom CSS

To easily customize CSS, you can use a separate CSS file:

$custom_css = "css/custom.css";

Debug

You can turn on debug mode with $debug:

$debug = true;

Tip

Debug messages will be printed in server logs.

This is also possible to enable Smarty debug, for web interface issues:

$smarty_debug = true;

Tip

Debug messages will appear on web interface.

Smarty

You need to define where Smarty is installed:

define("SMARTY", "/usr/share/php/smarty3/Smarty.class.php");
