Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Enhancing the Installation Process: Automation.

RE: /web
Apache RPM's on RedHat use /var/www.  I'd say use /var/lib/openacs/servername/whatever -- or even /var/openacs/servername/whatever -- although that is not strictly FHS compliant.  The first one is.

The best thing is to variablize the dependency on the hardcoded /web out -- what's wrong with a $serverhome, $webroot, or similar?  This way any number of configs can be supported -- and, more importantly, multiple ACS installations per box (one per AOLserver 3.0 process) can be supported easily.

RE: JRE vs JDK.  Thanks for the clarification, Dan.
