4.1. Terms and locations
Several terms are used in the examples.
This is the main directory for the catalog, where catalog.cfg resides. It will have a NAME, the name for the catalog. (Some common Interchange demo names are foundation, construct, barry, and simple.)
/var/lib/interchange/NAME /usr/local/interchange/catalogs/NAME $HOME/catalogs/NAME
We will use the path /var/lib/interchange/foundation in these examples.
Interchange software directory
This is the main directory for your Interchange server, where the file interchange.cfg resides. Common locations:
/usr/lib/interchange /usr/local/interchange $HOME/ic
We will use the path /usr/lib/interchange in these examples.
Interchange tarball directory
The quickbooks files are located in the untarred distribution file, before installation of Interchange is performed.
The Interchange daemon runs as a user ID that cannot be root. It will require write permission on directories it must modify to do its work.
We will use the user ID interch in these examples.
