Been at the for a few days and figure it's high time I get a bit more experienced advice.
I'm working to package a perl application - all of which's files should be placed in the
/var/www/<packagename> directory on the system.
So far I've been able to build the package - but it's not placing my files in this directory and I haven't read any concise ways on how to do so.
Right now my package builds properly - apart from lintian warnings but they are mainly that i'm using the template files from dh_make, which i'll update once i get this to work properly.
Essentially right now I have this as my structure:
ls: packagedirectory-1.0 - debian directory with control/copyright/rules/ ... - directory belonings to app - directory belonging to app - files belonging to app package)1.0-1.tar.gz
I've been building with
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
(Not signing for now, will do so once properly built) and doing this from the package directory. And this outputs my
.orig.tar.gz , and
Any help would be appreciated. Again - the main issue that i'm having here is that I want to put the app files/directories into
