Best Practice

Hello,

what is the best setup :

Webstore in www.website.com and Backoffice in www.website.com/admin
or
Webstore in www.website.com and Backoffice in bo.website.com

The first solution seems to cause issue of web.config legacy and second solution seems cause issues with images sources

Thank you

Hi,

It does not really matter how you configure URL of the administration console. To avoid errors on image URL, did you to properly configure FileWorkerComponentBase ? Please have a look here to see how to configure it : https://mageliawebstore.codeplex.com/discussions/446538

For security reason, we discourage leaving the administration console publicly available. We recommend you to put this application inside your internal network and access it through VPN. If it is not possible, you can use IP restriction.

To avoid web.config inheritance, you can enclose all your web.config configuration inside a <location path="." inheritInChildApplications="false">. Have a look at our responsive e-commerce template to see how we have done that.

Hope it helps,
