Description

The current readme for Metacat 1.2 says: The build.xml file now has a
property named datafilepath. It should be set
to the location of where you want your data files stored. If you are an
existing user, this directory should be /<tomcatdir>/webapps/metacat/data
where <tomcatdir> is the your tomcat installation directory where
your webapps directory is located and 'metacat' is the name of your servlet
instance."

It should be changed to something like:

Your datafiles should not be stored in the /<tomcatdir>/webapps/metacat/
path but somewhere else in order to prevent a webuser from access to stored
data. For unix users, the data directory needs to be writeable by whatever
user is running tomcat.

History

#1 Updated by Jing Tao about 17 years ago

It changed to:
If you are an existing user, the data directory is now
/<tomcatdir>/webapps/metacat/data
where <tomcatdir> is the your tomcat installation directory where
your webapps directory is located and 'metacat' is the name of your servlet
instance. If you leave your data directory where it currently is, your
data files are web accessible. If you do not want your data files to be
web accessible, move the data directory somewhere outside of your
webapps directory and change the datafilepath property in the
build.xml file and reinstall metacat. Note that if you have existing data
files, they need to be moved to the new directory. For more information
see bug 478.
