Creating a preconfigured Iguana install

Working outside the install directory

For a vendor who wants to be particularly rigorous, it’s even possible to cleanly separate the Iguana application files from their own configuration files. It makes sense to do this and to separate the log files into their own directory. For example:

  1. Iguana Application Dir
  2. Configuration Files (Fossil Respository + IguanaConfiguration.xml)
  3. Logs

To create this separation:

  • To change the log directory edit the configuration file IguanaConfiguration.xml.
    • Usually in the install directory (eg: C:Program FilesiNTERFACEWAREIguana).
    • Change the log_directory entry to the new log directory.
  • To specify the configuration file directory edit the file iguana_service.hdf .
    • Usually in the install directory (eg: C:Program FilesiNTERFACEWAREIguana).
    • Windows: change the command_line entry, use the –working_dir parameter to specify the directory:
      • command_line=iguana.exe --working_dir "D:buildv5"
    • Unix, Linux or Mac OS X: change the command_line_unix entry:
      • command_line_unix=./iguana --working_dir "Users/admin/build/v5"
  • You will need to restart Iguana to pick up the changes.
