Clean Up Manager
The Clean Up Manager was designed to delete all unused data tied to temp users in the system. A temp user is any B2C (Retail) user that uses the system without creating an account. B2B Print Stores don't have temp user data as everyone accessing the system is required to log in to gain access to the system. It's a good idea on a high volume traffic B2C Print Stores with self-registration to run the cleanup manager time to time to keep your database optimized and delete unused Images to save space on PrintNow.
- From your PrintNow admin, go to Settings/Domain Tools/Clean Up Manager.
- From the Clean Up Manager page, click Run Cleanup.
- Please be patient while the cleanup process is running. The more temporary users you have the longer the process may take.
- When complete you will get a report on deleted items like the sample report below.
Users Deleted: 316667
Shopping Carts Deleted: 15874
Shopping Cart Items Deleted: 86
Projects Deleted: 1257
Albums Deleted: 74
Images Deleted: 164

Use Site Bindings to configure your custom root-domains, sub-domains, generate CSR requests, upload and bind your purchased SSL Certificates. All Print Stores when activated can be accessed via system domain listed in your domain details with or without domain mappings.
- From your PrintNow admin, go to Settings/Domain Tools/Site Bindings.
- Before enabling a custom root domain or subdomain make sure your domain is forwarded to the IP listed in your domain details. You would need to manage this in the DNS settings your registrar provides you. Once the DNS settings propagate across the internet and you verify the IP is forward properly to correct IP proceed to step 3.
- Enter Root Domain or Sub Domain and toggle on Enable checkbox
- Click Save.
- You should now be able to enter your domain to access both the Print Store and PrintNow Admin Tools. e.g. yourdomain.com or yourdomain.com/admin
Enable SSL Certificate
- If you have the ability to generate the PFX format that contains both the certificate + Private Keys then you can click Upload SSL Certificate, toggle on "Certificate + Private Keys (PFX), Select your PFX certificate file, enter your password, and click save to upload. The Issue To, Issue By, and Expires On fields should show your certificate at this time. Proceed to step 3. Otherwise, proceed to step 2.
- If you are to receive the PEM or CRT format then you will need to first need to Generate a CSR request. Click Generate CSR. Fill out domain details: Common Name, Organization, Organizational Unit, City/Locality, State/Province, Country/Region. Only Common Name is required. Click Save, then Copy and save the text that is generated offline you can refer back to. When purchasing the SSL certificate they will request that information. PrintNow uses IIS servers if the question comes up before downloading your files. When your files are generated and downloaded you can click Upload SSL Certificate, toggle on "Certificate (PEM/CRT), Select your PEM/CRT certificate file and click save to upload. The Issue To, Issue By, and Expires On fields should show your certificate at this time. Proceed to step 3.
- The final step is to bind the uploaded certificate. Select the certificate in the top grid, Enable "Storefront SSL" on the domain details on the right column and click save. Your Print Store and PrintNow Admin Tools should show secure when accessing your root or subdomain.
