Why?  PMT Databases should be packed and regenerated periodically to remove deleted pages, links groups, images and documents from the site.  If a page has experienced a regeneration error (i.e. a page you can edit from a links group displays a ‘File Not Found' error when you try to access it), regenerating the database will usually bring it back.  Finally, a PMT Database should be regenerated if any changes are made to page templates.

  1. Click My Profile. The Login window appears displaying the Site Manager System Tools.
  2. Click PMT Database Manager. The Page Management Tool Database Manager window appears.
  3. Click the name of the database you wish to regenerate. The Master PMT Page appears.
  4. Click the Pack and Regenerate All from Latest Templates button. The Page Management Tool -- Pack PMT, Regenerate Pages window appears displaying a Page Creation Report.

Note: Packing and Regenerating a PMT Database can take a long time.  If a "timeout" message is displayed, there is no need to worry.  The pack and regenerate process continues on the web server and will complete properly.  If another error appears, please contact LIAA immediately.
