UniFi - Where is <unifi_base>?


You will see <unifi_base> in many of our configuration instructions. When following these instructions you are supposed to substitute <unifi_base> with the corresponding location in your computer. Its location will vary depending on your operating system. Find <unifi_base> in the following directories:

  • macOS:  /Applications/
  • Windows*:  "%userprofile%/Ubiquiti Unifi" 
  • UniFi Cloud Key & Debian/Ubuntu Linux:  /usr/lib/unifi

Note: %userprofile% is a Windows variable that returns the full C:\Users\yourname\ path. Another way of seeing it would be: C:\Users\<username>\Ubiquiti UniFi
