.tar.gz packages are entirely self-contained. All files and directories are, by default, contained within
$BIGCONNECT_DIR — the directory created when unpacking the archive.
This is very convenient because you don’t have to create any directories to start using BigConnect, and uninstalling BigConnect is as easy as removing the
$BIGCONNECT_DIR directory. However, it is advisable to change the default locations of the config and data directories so that you do not delete important data later on.
