In the ‘Site Configuration’ screen is a list of the sites configured for this installation of CyReport.

For each site there are columns showing the site’s name, the country in which the site is located, the area code of the site, the network address of the site and the interval between downloads for both the day and the night.

Assuming the CyReport license allows multiple sites, a new site can be added by clicking the 'Add' button.  This will add a new, blank site and open the site’s configuration dialog.  Without proper license, the ‘Add’ button will be disabled. A site can be deleted by clicking the small red trash can icon i1.jpg to the left of the site.  There must be at least one site, and so the first site, which comes in a default state with the system, cannot be deleted. A pre-existing site can be edited by either double clicking its entry on the list, or by highlighting it and clicking the 'Configure' button.

To save all changes made in the Configuration Editor, either select File | Save from the menu bar, or click the save icon i2.jpg in the tool bar. Then click ‘Yes’ so CyReport Server reads the new configuration.
