14.2 Appendix B. Specifying a non-default location for MSSData

MSSData is the root directory under which site-specific content is stored, including server configuration files, keystores, and emulator session information. This directory is created automatically; there are no additional steps required for installation.

The default location for MSSData:

  • On Windows:

    C:\ProgramData\Micro Focus\MSS\MSSData

  • On Linux or UNIX:


Changing the location

If you have a special circumstance that requires a non-default location for MSSData, edit the container.properties file to specify the location of the MSSData directory.

This single setting is used by the MSS, Metering, and Terminal ID Manager servers.

  1. Locate and open the container.properties file in a text editor.

    On Windows, open C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\MSS\server\conf.

    On Linux or UNIX, open /opt/microfocus/mss/conf.

  2. Replace dataFolder=rwebdata_location_placeholder with the location and name of the directory you define. Follow these examples.

    On Windows: dataFolder=c:\\data\\MSSData

    On Linux or UNIX: dataFolder=/var/data/mssdata

  3. Save your changes and restart the MSS Server.
