Liferay Administrator's Guide, 2nd Edition

Company Blogs September 9, 2008 By Richard Sezov Staff

I am pleased to announce the availability of the Liferay Administrator's Guide, Second Edition. The Guide has now been exhaustively gone through and updated to support Liferay 5.1 (and below). But there's more than that: a new chapter on Portal Administration has been added which covers how to design a site using Liferay and how to use Liferay's administrative portlets.

Beyond the updates and the new chapter, there are new sections of documentation sprinkled throughout the book in appropriate places. For example, the book now covers how to upgrade an existing Liferay installation. The new pluggable search is also covered, and you will be shown how to configure a separate search server to use in a clustered environment.

In all, this is a significant update to the documentation. As usual, it's available as both a paperback book and as a downloadable PDF. The book has been reformatted so that it is not so large as it previously had been, and should now fit on your bookshelf nicely with the rest of your computer books. In fact, it's the exact same size as the O'Reilly Nutshell series books. Mine is sitting on my shelf right next to XML in a Nutshell, and it fits in really well.

You can get it at our documentation page here. Enjoy!!

Great work Rich!!! It is really helpful. You have mentioned about developer guide so many places..I was wondering whether Developer guide for 5.1 has already been published or you are working on it.

Still working on it. I've given release dates for it before and they've all fallen by the wayside, so I hesitate to give one now. :-) It's very hard to keep up with Liferay's engineering team; they're the fastest bunch of coders I've ever worked with!
