In this section:
After installation, the WebFOCUS Client and ReportCaster directory structures are created. The default location for WebFOCUS products is $HOME/ibi.
The following directory is installed in the ibi directory by default:
Contains applications and data files. By default, this is the APPROOT directory where WebFOCUS looks for application files.
The default location for other directories is in the WebFOCUS81 directory. For example:
The WebFOCUS81 directory contains the following subdirectories:
Contains configuration files.
Default location for Change Management import and export packages.
Contains additional configuration files and files for optional security configurations.
Contains Java tools, templates, and other files used by WebFOCUS.

Contains sample WebFOCUS API applications.
Contains space used during internal processing.
Contains files used by the uninstall program.
Contains tools for configuration, migration, and other tasks.

The default directory for the Distribution Server is:
The directory contains the following subdirectories:
Contains application and other executable files.
Contains configuration and NLS resource files.
Contains ReportCaster libraries.
Contains configuration and error messages.
Contains sample API files.
Contains space for internal processing.
Contains the trace files.
Note: ReportCaster web components are installed with WebFOCUS Client.
WebFOCUS sometimes runs as part of your web server and application server. Therefore, the web and application servers require full access to WebFOCUS directories.
Permissions can be further restricted to 770 for sensitive directories, like config.
Note: Communication between WebFOCUS Client and the WebFOCUS Reporting Server is through TCP/IP, not the file system. However, if WebFOCUS Client and the WebFOCUS Reporting Server are installed on the same machine as the same user, they may share the same approot directory, /install_directory/ibi/apps by default. If this is the case, both WebFOCUS Client and Reporting Server processes require access to this directory.
