Windows Folder Structure


Microsoft Windows distributes program installations and configurations, the Webroot under IIS etc. to various folders in the file system. Since BlueSpice is a web application based on PHP, it is not always easy to use the Windows default system paths in the application.
For this reason, we recommend creating a separate folder structure for BlueSpice, all related data and additional program installations.
In the following we describe a proven folder structure that is also recommended by us.

Folder structure

In the following, "\bluespice\" is specified as the base directory for the installation in the root directory of the drive (e.g. C:\bluespice or D:\bluespice).

The folder structure based on Unix operating systems is:

├─ backup/           # für Backups
├─ bin/              # für Zusätzliche Programme sowie eigene Scripte
├─ etc/              # für Konfigurationsdateien
├─ opt/
│  └─ bluespice/
│     ├─ cache/         # BlueSpice-eigener Cache
│     ├─ images/        # Datei-Uploads
│     └─ widgets/       # Gerenderte Widgets
├─ tmp/              # Temporäre Dateien
└─ var/
   ├─ log/           # LOG-Dateien des Webservers
   └─ www/           # Die eigentliche BlueSpice-Applikation

Folder names for program installations

When installing programs in \bluespice\bin, please always ensure that these programs are installed in subfolders that do not contain any special characters and/or spaces.
