When logged in SSH, I was looking at the /home/username
folder. In that there were are 3 files - .bash_logout, .bash_profile and .bashrc files and public_ftp and public_html folders.
It was in this /home/username
folder and I did (got this from the net)
tar -zxf libmcrypt-2.5.7.tar.gz
compile and install:
The installation is complete.
Question - Did I compile it in the wrong directory ? Or compiling it in any directory will have the package installed at the proper location ?
Should I have done this in some proper location (like Windows's C:\Program Files or C:\Widnows) ?
