Some administrators may want to install NMIS in a location other than the default of /usr/local/nmis8. This is possible by telling the installer about the desired location and making a few other changes to the NMIS environment. For this example we'll assume the desired location is /opt/nmis.
Installer Site Option
Remove Default Location
At the time of this writing the installer will create both the custom location and the default location. We can simply remove the unnecessary default location.
Configure NMIS to Utilize the New Custom Location
Create the Apache Configuration
Create the NMIS Cron Jobs
Fix Any Permissions Issues
Restart the httpd Service
At this point NMIS should be functional the the GUI accessible.
