Installation directories

If you follow the manual, the files are installed into three directories independent of the architecture. The directory /opt/XSOXlicense takes the files which may be shared between machines of same architecture, the directory /etc/opt/XSOXlicense contains host specific files like license files, and the directory /var/opt/XSOXlicense contains output files like log files.

The following table shows all components of the software:

File Usage
Installation directory /opt/XSOXlicense
bin/ executable files
bin/xlicense shell script for executing …
bin/_xlicense … the real Xlicense license server
bin/uninstall shell script for uninstalling
share/ architecture independent files
share/license_agreement license terms
share/manual manual in HTML format
share/images/ images of the license server
Installation directory /etc/opt/XSOXlicense
licenses/ license file(s)
Installation directory /var/opt/XSOXlicense

Before executing a program, please read the license terms and conditions in the included file


or the appropriate license file.

If you choose to install the files into other directories, you have to adjust the environment variables $XLICENSE_HOME, $XLICENSE_ETC, and $XLICENSE_VAR in all shell scripts correspondingly.
