Hi,

I wonder if there is any particular guideline for installation of web based
application (the ports which install web pages, like www/wordpress,
www/serendipity or databases/phpmyadmin).

Some ports install web pages into "www/${PORTNAME}" while others install
into "www/data-dist/${PORTNAME}" or even into "share/${PORTNAME}".
However most of these ports let you override the installation path by
defining particular variables, but user should review Makefile before
installation to find out which variable should be set.

Is there any guideline on this subject? Or does it just depend on porters
taste?
