Recommended and default IBM® Notes® installation and upgrade directories on a Linux™ system are as follows.

On a Linux system, default IBM Notes installation and upgrade directories are as follows:

Table 1. Installation Directories
Directory path Description
/opt/ibm/notes Notes product and binary files installation directory
/root/notes/data Notes data files installation directory
/root/notes/data/workspace Notes workspace directory
/opt/ibm/notes/framework Notes Java™ code installation directory
/etc/notes/data Shared data directory
/{$HOME}/notes/data Notes data files directory for each user
The following data and workspace directories are only used during Notes install and upgrade. Notes cannot be run as the root user, so these directories are not used at runtime. The install and provisioning log files are located in this workspace directory.
