IPT setup part II
Please provide additional information for the basic IPT setup.
The password for the default administrator account can be modified later on, but the email cannot be changed without removing and re-creating the user.
Select the mode you would like to run the IPT in. The IPT mode decides whether or not the hosted resources will be indexed for public search access by GBIF. GBIF recommends IPT administrators try Test mode first in order to understand the registration process, and then reinstall in Production mode for formal data publishing.
: for a given installation, this selection is final and cannot be changed later on. To switch from test to production mode or vice versa, you will have to reinstall your IPT and repeat any configurations you made.
mode is for evaluating the IPT or running it in a training scenario. Registrations will go into a test registry and resources will never be indexed.
mode is for publishing resources formally. Resources are registered into the GBIF Registry and will be indexed.

The URL that points to the root of your IPT installation. If you want to register resources you must have a publicly accessible address. For example, http://tools.gbif.org/ipt.
