Question What does "${prefix}/data/jobs" means?


Hi,

I was asked to substitute the PREFIX_HTDOCS/data/jobs with its real value.
The `--install-htdocs' is located on "/var/www". And I'm so confused on what value of PREFIX_HTDOCS should I assign. Any idea? Thanks.

seeing as you have not said WHAT program this is for
I am GUESSING something for Apache ( /var/www)
if so then it might be 2 different things
/var/www /TheCMSFolder
-- or --
h??p://123.456.789.098/???
your address or the address of the virtual host or alias

Actually, I just want to ask what's the difference between the path of --install-htdocs which is the /var/www and the PREFIX_HTDOCS?? Are they same?

And yes, it is for the apache2. I just don't know the value of PREFIX_HTDOCS. Sorry I'm new here. Thanks

That's why we need to echo the value out, so we can see what it says....

You should probably read this: http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz
