This article covers the default installation directory and installation behavior when installing ISL Conference Proxy on different operating systems:


On Windows machines the default installation directory is:

C:\Program Files\ISL Conference Proxy


On Linux machines the behavior differs depending on the version of ISL Conference Proxy. With versions 4.4.1917.33 and above the default installation directory was changed from /var/confproxy to /opt/confproxy for better compliance with Filesystem Hierarchy Standard and systemd execution. 

This results in the possible 4 behaviors when installing ISL Conference Proxy on Linux machine:

  •  Clean installation of ICP 4.4.1917.33 and above: 
    • Installation directory: /opt/confproxy
  •  Clean installation of ICP 4.4.1837.102 and before: 
    • Installation directory: /var/confproxy
  • Upgrading ICP from version 4.4.1837.102 and before to a version 4.4.1917.33 and above:
    • Installation directory: /var/confproxy
    • If /var/confproxy directory exists at the time of installation it will be used to allow upgrades
