new aolserver-4.0 beta2 gentoo packages available
Installation documentation and file permissions
Hope some of that helps...
/var/www seems good to me. Especially if it's what Apache is using. That will also make it easier for Apache users to get used to Aolserver.
/usr/local/aolserver with binaries, nothing service-specific, basically read-only /home/service0 with ssh certs and emacs files and such for the people who connect to the machine to work or administer on service0 /var/www/service0 with all the files to make service0 work then /home/service1 /var/www/service1 etc.the service0 user wouldn't be able to affect the service1 user.
