The folder of the databases 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 carrying the name of the base mybase.gwb hold the specific data for each base.
