Presto Support

Installation Instructions

These instructions are for new installs of Presto 8.0 (and higher) only. If you are upgrading Presto from an earlier release, please log into to view the Upgrader's Guide. For additional product information, please visit the Presto home page.

Step 10: International Settings.

Note: This step is only relevant to you if your system has a CCSID other than 37. ?

There are a number of Presto configuration options for installing the software on a non-English language system or to support multiple languages. Check your CCSID by running the command DSPSYSVAL SYSVAL(QCHRID). If the value displayed for the Code Page is 37 you can skip this step.

If your system CCSID is something other than 37 you do need to make a change to your Presto Apache HTTP server instance. You server instance name will match the environment name you specified in Step 2 (the default is XL_PRESTO).

Edit your HTTP server configuration file (see KB article 7201 for instructions). In your configuration find this line:

DefaultFsCCSID  00037
Change it to:
DefaultFsCCSID  00xxx
where xxx is your system's CCSID. Save your changes and restart the instance. ?

Datepicker Localization

The datepicker you can implement via the Presto visual editor is set to display English language settings. If you are building your application for another country you can take advantage of a jQuery data localization feature.

To do this start by opening your custom.js file (use the Presto Designer menu option Tools>User Resources). The file custom.js file includes some instructions for overriding the default English settings. As you will see, Presto ships with several language files in the User Resources directory, so if your target language is one of these, you don't have to download anything additional.

Follow the instructions in the comments in your custom.js file to enable the appropriate language file. If required, you can also review or update the language file via the Presto Designer, from the menu option mentioned above.
