Old:Standard Server Configuration

From Dryad wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

We create scripts and symlinks wherever possible to keep all machines using the directories/commands listed here, regardless of differences in the underlying OS. This makes system maintenance much easier, and allows our scripts to work correctly on any standard Dryad system.

  • All content is owned by, and processes run by, the primary login account for the machine. This is either 'dryad' or 'ubuntu'.
  • All major directories are symlinked from the primary login's home directory, for easy access
  • The handle server should only run on production, because we don't want multiple copies registered with the root handle server.


  • code is built to /opt/dryad
  • dspace logs: /opt/dryad/log
