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 an installation on a personal computer. Its location is, by default, within the distribution folder with the name bases, but it can be located elsewhere and named otherwise according to your preferences. Similarly, the choice of names for your bases and .auth files is unconstrained.

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.
