It's all the way around... It's
WebAppDeploy /<root>/home/<user>/html conn /xxx/

Where "/<root>/home/<user>/html" is the directory on the disk where your
web-application resides, and /xxx/ is the URL path that you will have to put
after your http://myserver/... In your browser's URL (such as
http://server/xxx/ to access the webapp in /<root>/home/<user>/html on disk)
