Basically FSI Server is delivered with a configuration suitable for most use cases. The default configuration was carefully chosen to minimize the necessary adaptions. To start using FSI Server, all that needs to be done is installing the licence key, creating a user account and defining a source connector, which includes the path to your images.
As mentioned above, FSI Server imports the provided assets into its internal storage. This import process converts and scales the source images which uses a considerable amount of the system resources and, depending on the amount and size of the source images, may take quite a long time. Due to the internal storage architecture the images in a source connector will be re-imported if the source connector is renamed. Choosing the correct name right from the beginning is therefore advisable.
