The Synchronet BBS directory structure:

By default, the above directories are sub-directories of your main Synchronet installation directory (e.g. c:\sbbs on Windows or ~/sbbs or /sbbs on *nix). By default, lower-case short directory names are used. For example:


However, the sysop has the option of changing the location of these directories through configuration settings in SCFG and sbbs.ini. If the location of these directories is changed for some reason, the sysop should also make sure that their system environment variables match the new directory locations.

If 16-bit DOS programs are to be utilized in the BBS (e.g. as archive/compression programs, door games, protocol drivers, etc.), you may run into troubles if you choose to use non-DOS compatible directory names (e.g. names longer than 8 characters or containing invalid DOS filename characters).
