This Guide is intended for people administrating areas of GridSite websites or fileservers, or managing GridSite's DN List groups.
There is a separate User Guide which explains how to authenticate to the server with X.509 certificates, and how to manage files via a standard web browser or with command-line HTTPS clients. You should be familiar with the User Guide to fully understand this Admin Guide.
You may also find the Config Guide useful to understand how the Apache webserver is configured with GridSite extensions. If you are also the Apache webmaster for your site, you will definitely need to read the Config Guide to create the httpd.conf file. However, if you only need to manage webpages and files, then this Admin Guide and the User Guide should be sufficient.
