|When I run /pliant/pliant/install/install (pliant86) it tells me
that I haven't configured my computer. But I did, with pliant83 which I'm running.
Where is the configuration information stored ?
Also, is there a recommendation for best practices with user ownership of files ?
Who owns /pliant and as what user should I running the webserver,
and what rights should the /pliant/binary directory have ?

|At the moment, what I recommend is:
Under Linux, untar Pliant at one of the three following locations:
Under Windows, unpack it at
Now, assuming that you untared pliant at /usr/local/
then you have Pliant programs in /usr/local/pliant/
and Pliant configuration files in /usr/local/pliant_security/
and data files in /usr/local/pliant_data/
Then, all the three directories /usr/local/pliant/ /usr/local/pliant_security/
and /usr/local/pliant_data/ should belong to the same Unix user (use chown -R
if necessary) which should be the one you use to run Pliant.
Pliant will automatically hide the files it create in /usr/local/pliant_security/
so that other Unix users cannot view them, and the reason is that they contain
the secret keys.
