User directories structure

Hi,
this is a question for the old eyeOS 1 developers: what is the reason for the structure users ==> la4 ==> luca ?
I mean, why the "la4"...it seems like a useless addictional level to the FS structure...am I wrong?
Because I was thinking about removing it, placing all the users directories directly in "users", but I guess that there must be a reason for that structure and I'm missing it...
Because if we can have one less level in the structure, it can be better for the server's file system, especially if some users already have a lot of annidated directories...
Thanks!
Luca

Re: User directories structure

Hi Luca,

I was already busy with this too. I think it's a security wise thing, or just from old dev indeed where the thougth was just like that an never changed.

I think this should be more modulair and maybe we need to do something with the settings folder of them too and integrate it but place their docs outside of that settings folder.

Good thoughts smile

Re: User directories structure

I think it's because some systems (don't know exactly which) have a limit on the number of directories (inside each directory) and this is used to allow more registered users on those systems.

That's it and nothing else. It got a problem at eyeos.info at some time, so we changed it. Don't ask we what file system they were using... NTFS, ext4 and others should be no problem, so this step does not need to be redone in new versions (e.g. 0.9).

Re: User directories structure

Sorry Luca, but there's no plural "s" for information in the English language. Please don't ask me why...
