Installation Directories

The home directory for the debian distribution of Hightide is /usr/share/hightide. Other directories under /var and /etc are linked to
from the /usr/share/hightide directory.

The configuration of the server is in /etc/hightide. The configuration files listed in /etc/hightide/jetty.conf are passed to the command line of Hightide when it is started by /etc/init.d/hightide.

Webapps can be deployed by placing them in /var/lib/hightide/webapps (linked from /usr/share/hightide/webapps). Additional contexts can be configured and (hot) deployed via the /etc/hightide/contexts directory (linked from /usr/share/hightide/contexts).
