I'm trying to build my first wiki with JSPWiki 2.6.2. I wonder whether  
anyone might want to clarify a few points.

1) The README that came with the .zip file says simply to put  
JSPWiki.war into $CATALINA_HOME/webapps. However, the more detailed  
explanation at

says that you can put JSPWiki.war "anywhere, EXCEPT in the webapps  
folder of your Tomcat home". Which is correct? Or better?

2) If I put JSPWiki.war into $CATALINA_HOME/webapps and access Install.jsp,
then an admin account seems to get created with user id {0} and  
password {1}. What do the curly-brace expressions mean? I can't figure  
them out.

3) If I do as

says and put JSPWiki.war's contents somewhere else than  
$CATALINA_HOME/webapps, then how do I tell Tomcat where to look for  
the wiki? The document seems to presuppose there is a folder like


where one is supposed to put a property file called something like  
myfirstwiki.xml (where <myfirstwiki<> is the name of a wiki.) But my  
Tomcat 6.0.16 does not have a directory like that:
sakari@gongli:~> ll $CATALINA_HOME/conf
total 92

Thank you,
