Using the Server Administration Panel

Using the Server Administration Panel

Server Administration is a system-scoped administration panel holding a variety of low-level Liferay DXP configurations. In Server Administration you can manage and monitor system memory usage, low-level properties, some third-party integrations, document repository migration, logging, scripting, mail server configuration, and portal shutdown.

You can access Server Administration by clicking Control PanelConfigurationServer Administration.

The Resources tab of Server Administration shows a graph of your server's memory usage.

Server Administration’s functionality is segmented into tabs:
