Configuring Your Product
About the Management Tasks
When you start your template-based product, it automatically creates the necessary files for you to begin
working immediately. As you become more familiar with your template-based product, you may find that

The template-based products let you do these different management tasks depending on the type of user

of managing the site version, if you have one, of your template-based product so only one user, the site
manager, makes changes.

require you to set variables in different configuration files.
