Mapping custom Web server messages

You can change the message users receive when they encounter an error or delete a document while working with a site on the Web server.

Before you begin

Make sure the Domino® Configuration database exists.

Procedure

  1. Open the database that will store the customized messages. You can store custom messages in DOMCFG.NSF or in any database on the server.
  2. Using Domino Designer, create a form that contains the message you want to display, and save the form.
  3. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for each custom message. The forms can exist in the same database or in separate databases.
  4. Select the Error & Response Mappings view and then click Add Mapping.
  5. Do one of the following:
    • Select All Web Sites/Entire Server to customize a message for all Web sites on the server.
    • Select Specific Web Site/Virtual Server and enter the host name or IP address for the Web site. The custom messages will then only apply to the specified Web Site or virtual server.
  6. Optional: Enter a comment about the error message or response.
  7. For each type of error or response, under Target Database, enter the name of the database that contains the form you want to display.
  8. For each type of error or response, under Target Form, enter the name of the form you want to display.
  9. Save the Error Message Response Mapping document.
  10. In the ACL for the database that contains the forms, assign Author access to the server that stores the database.
