A typical installation will position the folder holding one or several of your genealogy bases at the root of your hosting service.

The bases folder should contain the same information structure as in the case of installation on a personal computer:

In each of the etc, images, lang and src folders, sub-folders with names base-i hold the specific data for each base.


    • directory bases: The folder containing the GeneWeb bases.
      • directory base-1.gwb : one or several base-i.gwb folders.
      • file base-1.gwf : and their associated .gwf parameter file
      • directory base-2.gwb
      • file base-2.gwf
      • directory cnt  : memorizing the access count for the bases
      • directory etc  : used in priority over the generic gw/etc files (see header)
        • directory base-1  : template folders for base-1
          • directory perso_module
            • file module_xx.txt
