After installing Sloeber (the Arduino plugin for Eclipse), the software installation sites were deleted. This will prevent Eclipse from making updates to the installed plugins. These are the sites that I use with my Eclipse for PHP Developers setup which can be restored manually through Help -> Install New Software -> Available Software Sites.
- The Eclipse Project Updates:
- org.eclipse.e4.ui update site
- EGit P2 Repository
- LiClipseText p2 Repository
- Pydev p2 Repository

A custom error page should have information about your website and contact info for the user to let you know the site failed.
The code to redirect errors to a custom page is added to the web.config file (located in the root of the website folder). The following settings refers to Error.aspx in the /ErrorPages folder.
<customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="~/ErrorPages/Error.aspx" />
You can login to an XMPie uStore using a direct URL. This is just for debugging purposes. Normally an outside user will use a friendly URL that the proxy server generates. The URL for accessing a store is:
The XX is the StoreID that you can find in the uStoreAdmin site under ID beside the Store Name. Your store’s web site goes under website.com in the URL.
