I didn't do anything special regarding the jetty.xml. I copied "conf" 
and "data" from the archiva directory to /var/archiva. I tweaked the 
reposotory paths in archiva.xml to be in /var/archiva. Finally I set 
ARCHIVA_BASE to /var/archiva. Since jetty.xml was already set up to use 
the database I did not have to touch it (I think). Currently it contains 
this entry:

<New id="users" class="">
       <New class="org.postgresql.ds.PGPoolingDataSource">
         <Set name="serverName">localhost</Set>
         <Set name="databaseName">archiva_users</Set>
         <Set name="user">xxxx</Set>
         <Set name="password">xxxx</Set>

There are similar entries for the other archiva databases.
