Description Patrick Uiterwijk 2013-05-09 14:03:01 EDT
Description of problem:
The page https://www.openshift.com/page/openshift-environment-variables mentions that "All of these directories (except `OPENSHIFT_TMP_DIR`) are relative to your `$OPENSHIFT_HOMEDIR`.", but when I use the environment variable in a script, the actual value of $OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR is "/var/lib/openshift/518be0034382ecab39000234/app-root/data/".
Comment 1 Bilhar 2013-05-09 20:06:41 EDT
This link points to OpenShift website, which is NOT maintained by the documentation team. However, the information about Environment Variables is also duplicated in the User Guide here: 

So, BZ961558 has been created for the docs User Guide, but I'll reassign this bug to Clayton to look into the info on the website.
Comment 2 Yujie Zhang 2013-06-06 01:35:43 EDT
Checked the user guide, the envrionment variable description and table have been corrected, so verify this bug.
