Collecting Configuration Information for Linux Installations
As part of the installation process for Watson™ Explorer, you will be prompted for the Linux user and group who will own the files and directories in the final installation. This is especially important for Watson Explorer Egnine, which is either integrated into an existing web server installation or runs an embedded web server that is included with the product, but is a requirement of other Watson Explorer and related product modules because some of the files and directories that are used by Watson Explorer must be writable by both a specific user and a group which that user belongs to. The user that you specify during installation must also be a member of the group that you specify.
If you are installing Watson Explorer Engine in administrator mode on a Linux system, you will probably want to integrate it with a system web server such as the Apache web server, and should collect the information discussed in Collecting User/Group Information for Privileged Linux Installations before beginning your Watson Explorer installation.
If you are installing Watson Explorer Engine in non-admin (un-privileged) mode, you should collect the information discussed in Collecting User/Group Information for Non-Admin Linux Installations before beginning your installation.
