File and Folder Locations

All the files and folders listed in this table are created automatically by Essentials, either when Essentials is installed, or when you configure something that requires that file or folder.

Curly brackets represent a file path. For example, {GE_INSTALL} is the path of the Essentials installation folder.

Square brackets represent the name of the particular item. For example, in {GE_HOME}\Sites\[site], [site] stands for the name of a particular site.
