Recommended Bamboo installation directory

Hello, I'm relatively new to Linux and want to install Bamboo on RHEL 6. I've been following the installation guide for Bamboo, and it mentions a home directory and an install directory, but I am curious, what is the best place to extract/install Bamboo on a Linux machine?

Any recommendations?

You can go with Atlassian's conventions:

/opt/atlassian/bamboo for the install and /var/atlassian/application-data/bamboo for the home directory.

Greetings Nathan,

Where you will extract bamboo is of your choice. It doesn't need be in a specific place. However, your Bamboo Home Directory cannot be the same as the Bamboo Installation Directory. Just as a tip I have my bamboo installation directory in /home/henrique/atlassian/bamboo_inst and Bamboo Home Directory is in /opt/atlassian/bamboo_home.

Just avoid having a directory name with a space on it.
