Chapter 14. Server Administration > The Server Structure

The Server Structure

The Flash Communication Server is divided into four levels, as shown in Figure 14.1's Venn diagram. Each inner circle adopts the access model and resource limitations defined by the outer circle. Each inner circle also applies additional limitations on security and resources. The security and resources of the application (inner-most circle) are a culmination of the outer levels. The four levels are:

  • Server. A collection of adaptors configured with Server.xml. The server defines the computer resource limits available across all adaptors. It also defines the administrator user security.

  • Adaptor. A collection of virtual hosts configured with Adaptor.xml. The adaptor defines the server resources available to each virtual host plus the security restriction levels.

  • Virtual host. A collection of applications configured with Vhost.xml. The virtual host exists within the limitations set by the adaptor.

  • Application. A collection of server-side ActionScripts (ASC), Flash video (FLV), and Stored objects (FSO) files configured with Application.xml. All applications are subject to the limitations declared in the adaptor and virtual host configuration files.
