Moving a centos rpm installation

i have apache2 httpd and DocumentRoot is on a custom dir, with multiple virtual hosts and port combination pointing to different directories.

i used the foswiki custom installer for centos which i assume installs with all default parameters? so i'm just now looking for some guidance as how i should be edit the config to redirect / move / point to custom paths?

let's assume my DocumentRoot is /www, and i want to access foswiki at

anyone could enlighten me? thanks in advance!

If you are changing the install locations, then you should probably follow the regular InstallationGuide. You'll need to look at the Apache configuration, as well as your lib/LocalSite.cfg You could also use the ApacheConfigGenerator to build a config. (Note that our Apache configs we generate / supply, don't work with Apache 2.4. They need to be adjusted for the 2.4 syntax changes).

In LocalSite.cfg, the important file system path settings are: (These happen to be from my system)

$Foswiki::cfg{DataDir} = '/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/data';
$Foswiki::cfg{LocalesDir} = '/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/locale';
$Foswiki::cfg{PubDir} = '/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/pub';
$Foswiki::cfg{ScriptDir} = '/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/bin';
$Foswiki::cfg{TemplateDir} = '/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/templates';
$Foswiki::cfg{ToolsDir} = '/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/tools';
$Foswiki::cfg{WorkingDir} = '/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/working';

And the apache configuration: (I just searched for var using grep. So these are all the directories / files that need to be reviewed.

    DocumentRoot "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core"
ScriptAlias /foswiki/bin "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/bin"
Alias /foswiki/pub "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/pub"
Alias /foswiki "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core"
<Directory "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core">
<Directory "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/bin">
    AuthUserFile "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/data/.htpasswd"
<Directory "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/pub">
<Directory "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/pub/Trash">
<Directory "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/data">
<Directory "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/templates">
<Directory "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/lib">
<Directory "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/locale">
<Directory "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/tools">
<Directory "/var/www/foswiki/distro/core/working">
