Okay, so if we have XWiki running on a dedicated server, and we set user

By "location" I was referring to what the directory is called that xwiki is 
installed into (eg. "xwiki" or "xwikifarm").

How would this be done?  Don't you need root permission to install the WAR into 
$CATALINA_HOME/webapps ?
Ah ... I'm guessing you can "deploy" XWiki through Tomcat's management app?  Is 
this what you mean?
