WEBDIR is used in both UNIX and Windows 2000 environments. If you are using UNIX, then you must use WEBDIR. If you are using Windows 2000, then you must use %WEBDIR%.

It is important to know your WEBDIR path. Your administrator can provide the path.

Whenever you see instructions in a procedure in this chapter to copy a file to a folder in the WEBDIR directory, you must copy the file into the folder that represents your WEBDIR path. WEBDIR is simply a variable that represents the actual root document directory, which is unique and different for most clients.
