Firestorm Installation Guide

Please follow these conventions when installing and using Firestorm:

  1. Install the source code in a directory named "fs"
  2. Create a subdirectory of "fs" for each database, with a name that is in lowercase letters (or digits) and no longer than 5 characters
  3. Install the METAD database in a directory named "metad" which is not a subdirectory of "fs"
  4. Create a subdirectory of "metad" for each database, with a name that is in lowercase letters (or digits) and no longer than 5 characters. This name should match exactly the corresponding subdirectory of "fs"
