Project repository.

Stores all files to be used by all the projects in the system. For example, .xml
files, templates, and attachments. By default the repository is located on the same machine as the
application server, which is useful for smaller setups. For larger organizations however, or when
working in a clustered environment, it is advisable to install the repository on a dedicated machine.
When working in a clustered environment, the repository must be accessible by all nodes.

To find out the default location that repository files are saved to for a project

1. click on Site Parameters tab in SIte Admin
2. Look for the BASE_REPOSITORY_PATH parameter

To find out where an existing project's repository is located

1. Open Site Admin
2. Click on Site Projects tab
3. Click on a project
4. The location of the projects repository will be listed as the value of the ''Project Directory''
