Directory structure

A REST channel server simply delivers files in a certain directory structure. The content of those files is static. Their location is relative to the URLs given in the channel.xml baseurl tags.

Note: All files are static - you do not need a scripting language installed on your server.

The following table lists all known files, a tiny description as well as the version they appeared in first.
