 +===== POPFile's Directory Structure and Configuration Files =====
 +
 +POPFile requires its directory structure and configuration files exist under the POPFile installation directory.
 +
 +
 +**Assuming you install POPFile to /usr/local/brad/popfile/ then your installation will look like this:**
 +
 +<code>
 +<code> POPFile installation directory (contains popfile.pl, utilities and configuration files)</code>
 +
 +/usr/local/brad/popfile    
 +
 +<code> POPFile module directories (these contain the Perl modules that comprise POPFile)</code>
 +
 +/usr/local/brad/popfile/Classifier
 +/usr/local/brad/popfile/Platform
 +/usr/local/brad/popfile/POPFile
 +/usr/local/brad/popfile/Proxy
 +/usr/local/brad/popfile/UI
 +
 +<code> POPFile manual, skins and languages directories</code>
 +
 +/usr/local/brad/popfile/skins
 +/usr/local/brad/popfile/manual
 +/usr/local/brad/popfile/languages
 +
 +
 +<code> POPFile messages directory (contains message history and cache)</code>
 +
 +/usr/local/brad/popfile/messages
 +
 +</code>
 +
 +**popfile.db**
 +
 +If you are using the default SQLite backend, then your database will be in the file named popfile.db.
 +
 +**popfile.pid**
 + 
 +When POPFile runs, it creates a file, popfile.pid, in the POPFile installation directory. The file contains the process id of the running POPFile and is used as a semaphore to prevent multiple instances of POPFile from running.
 +
 +**popfile.cfg**
 +
 +Once POPFile has been run at least once, a popfile.cfg file will be created. This file contains all of the configuration parameters that control POPFile's operation. These parameters are controlled in several ways;
 +
 +  * They can be altered on a running POPFile from the UI's Advanced Page
 +
 +  * They can be overridden or set at startup by using a [[:OptionReference | commandline parameter]] when running popfile.pl
 +
 +  * They can be altered by manually editing the popfile.cfg file (do this only when POPFile is **not** running).
