GeneWeb distribution are available as compressed .tar, .gz or .zip archive files (or as an installer for some Windows releases). The archives can be uncompresssed into a folder whose structure is:

    • directory geneweb-distribution: the folder containing the GeneWeb distribution
      • directory bases: default location for databases
        • [to be detailed]
      • directory gw
        • directory etc: template files
        • directory images: icons used by gwd
        • directory lang: language files used in template construction such as lexicon
        • directory setup: gwsetup template files
        • file a.gwf: standard version for the configuration parameters of a base
        • alt exe consang: tool to calculate consanguinity
        • file ged2gwb, ged2gwb2, gwb2ged: base creation and extraction with GED format
        • alt exe gwc, gwc2, gwu: gwc to create a base, gwu to extract a .gw archive file
        • alt exe gwd: the main GeneWeb server
        • file gwd.arg: execution parameters for gwd
        • file gwd.log: execution traces for gwd (as specified at gwd launch)
        • alt exe gwsetup: auxiliary server for base management
        • file only.txt: access restriction for gwsetup
        • file tags.txt: list of authorized HTML tags
        • directory update_nldb: update the internal links between notes and pages
      • file CHANGES.txt: changelog
      • script file geneweb: launch gwsetup, gwd and START.html page
      • script file gwd: minimal launch script for gwd
      • script file gwsetup: minimal launch script for gwsetup
      • file LICENSE.txt
      • file LIZEZMOI.txt
      • file README.txt
      • file START.htm : a minimal start page (assumes that gwd and gwsetup have been started)

geneweb and gwd script files have .bat extension on Windows and .command extension on macOS.

Note also that the minimal gwd start script provided in this distribution folder installs a bases folder in the distribution folder itself. You may choose to keep this organisation rather than maintaining a separate folder.

You may also rename the main folder to any name of your choice, but don't forget to use the same name if you use CGI mode in the cgi-bin/ launch script and the gw link to the style and JavaScript files at the web_root.
