Proposed structure

The root directory of the server is the destination of server.turtlesense.org

  1. /bin - system executable files
  2. /lib - system libraries
  3. /boot - kernel files (critical)
  4. /etc - system configuration files
  5. /usr - shared user applications
  6. /home - home directories for specific users
  7. /var - services files (logs, mailboxes, web)
    1. /www -- websites
      1. /ts -- Turtle Sense -- This is the destination of root.turtlesense.org
        1. /live -- this is the eventual destination of turtlesense.org and www.turtlesense.org
        2. /test -- this is the destination of test.turtlesense.org for testing

          2. /xxx -- Other organizations get their own subdirectory structure
