WoltLab package server configuration
By default, WSC tries to get all packages from the official WoltLab servers (including the plugin store). This can lead to problems if a product is distributed by both the plugin store and third party vendors. Since WSC 3.0 the authentication code is a remedy. This limits the plugin store packages to those that are actually available to the operator. Packages not purchased are ignored accordingly.
The authentication code can be set under ACP > Configuration > Options > General > System > Update-Server.
You can find your personal authentication code on woltlab.com in your customer account.
VieCode package server setup
If a package was installed manually, our package servers are set up automatically. A manual setup is of course also possible. The package server can be set up under ACP > Configuration > Packages > Package Server. Then click on Add server. In the URL field, enter the appropriate URL for our package server:
- WSC 3.0: https://www.viecode.com/update/vortex/
- WSC 3.1: https://www.viecode.com/update/tornado/
- WSC 5.2: https://www.viecode.com/update/2019/
- WSC 5.3: https://www.viecode.com/update/5.3/
- WSC 5.4: https://www.viecode.com/update/5.4/
Then you enter your personal access data (user name / password). You will find this in our customer area in the box at the bottom right.
Now click on Search updates under ACP > Configuration > Packages > Packages. You should now see the number of available packages under ACP > Configuration > Packages > Package Server.
