OpenACS docs are written by the named authors, and may be edited by OpenACS documentation staff.

In this chapter, Configuring refers to making changes to a new OpenACS site through the web interface. In crude terms, these changes happen in the database, and are upgrade-safe. Customizing refers to changes that touch the file system, and require some planning if easy upgradability is to be maintained.
