OpenVAS File Locations

(by Michael Wiegand)

The OpenVAS components will install files to different locations on your system during installation. This chapter aims to give you a rough idea of what will be installed where.

Please note that the locations presented here refer to a standard installation from source with prefix=/usr/local. These locations may differ according to the choices made when configuring and compiling the individual components; if you installed OpenVAS from binary packages provided for your distribution, the package maintainers may have chosen different locations according to the distributions guidelines.

Be aware that most of these directories will of course contain files additional to the ones described in the following sections; this chapter only points out which files will be placed by OpenVAS in certain locations.
