Maintaining a running implementation of Liferay Portal is not much different from maintaining the application server environment upon which it is running. There are, however, several factors which administrators should be aware of when they are responsible for a running instance of Liferay. This chapter will cover these issues, outlining for system administrators some specifics about keeping a running Liferay instance stable and secure.
This chapter will cover the following topics:
Liferay Monitoring using Google Analytics
Backing Up a Liferay Installation
Changing Logging Levels
The discussion on back up will cover what parts of Liferay should be backed up. We will not cover specific backup software or procedures; generally, most organizations have standards for doing backups of their systems, and Liferay as a Java EE application fits well into these standards.
