A directory rule maps a folder to a URL pattern. When the Domino server receives a URL that matches the pattern, the server uses the folder to access the resource. Directory rules can only be used to map the location of files that are to be read directly, such as HTML files and graphic files, and executable programs, such as CGI programs, to be run by the operating system. Directory rules cannot be used to map the location of resources, such as Domino databases or servlets.
When you install a Domino Web server, some folders are created automatically. These folders are mapped by directory rules that are defined on the Configuration tab of the Web site document. When the Web server starts, it automatically creates internal rules to map these folders to URL patterns.
The following folders are created by default:
- HTML folder for non-graphic files
- Icons folder for graphic images such as the view gifs
- CGI-bin folder for CGI programs
- Java folder for Java applets
