Filesystem Layout

Webinator is installed underneath /usr/local/morph3 on Unix or C:\Program Files\Thunderstone Software\Webinator on Windows by default. It consists of several subdirectories.

This will be the structure on Unix (not all files are listed here):

Install Directory
   Readme.txt
   license.key
   texis.ini
   .htaccess
   bin/
      anytotx
      monitor
      texis
   htdocs/
      webinator/
         bar0.gif
         bar1.gif
         common/
            search.css
         factorydefault/
            search.css
         index.html
         xsl/
            default.xsl
   texis/
      default/
         db1/
         db2/
      monitor.log
      scripts/
         errorscript.vs
         webinator/
            dowalk.vs
            search.vs
      testdb/
      vortex.log

HTML Directory
   webinator/
      (same as Install Directory/htdocs/webinator/ tree)

CGI Directory
   texis

Note: In versions prior to 6, the configuration file was called texis.cnf instead of texis.ini. Version 6 will try to load it from the old location if it cannot be found at the new location.

The webinator directory contains the search interface scripts, several GIF files used by the search interfaces, and an index.html that contains a hyperlink to the administrative interface, as well as the online documentation.

All of the directories that should not be referenced by web browsers contain a .htaccess file that denies all access in the event that you chose an install dir under your web server's document root (not recommended). If you did install under your document root and your web server does not respect .htaccess style protection you should block web access to those directories by whatever means your web server provides.

This will be the structure on Windows (not all files are listed here):

Install Directory
   Readme.txt
   license.key
   texis.ini
   anytotx.exe
   monitor.exe
   texis.exe
   htdocs\
      webinator\
         bar0.gif
         bar1.gif
         common\
            search.css
         factorydefault\
            search.css
         index.htm
         xsl\
            default.xsl
   texis\
      default\
         db1\
         db2\
      monitor.log
      scripts\
         errorscript.vs
         webinator\

      testdb\
      vortex.log
