By default, during its first bootstrap Alfresco Content Services will load a sample site, called "Sample: Web Site Design Project" (swsdp).


The easy way to disable loading the sample site and users is to add a property in before starting the repository for the first time:


That is the recommended solution. An alternate approach is to disable the sample site by overriding the patch service before the first run of the repository. Load a file with the following contents at [ALF_HOME]/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/site-bootstrap-context.xml


<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<!-- Disable loading the Sample Site -->
<!-- Put this file at [ALF_HOME]/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/site-bootstrap-context.xml -->
<bean id="patch.siteLoadPatch.swsdp" class="org.alfresco.repo.admin.patch.impl.SiteLoadPatch" parent="basePatch">
<property name="id"><value>patch.siteLoadPatch.swsdp</value></property>
<property name="description"><value>patch.siteLoadPatch.description</value></property>
<property name="disabled"><value>true</value></property>
