Installation Target Roots for File Packages

Last Modified: November 20, 2017

When building packages, the directories you create inside the data folder inform Package Manager where to install the files. If you create a subdirectory inside a target root, Package Manager will create the subdirectory on the target system.

For each intended root target, create the corresponding subdirectory in your file package using the names provided below.
