How to change the teamcity data directory with a WAR installation?

JonahGroup asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I'm moving a teamcity build server from a failing machine to a new one.  I'm installing onto a Centos 5 machine with tomcat 6.  
I have successfully installed everything, however there is one last sticking point:  The data directory is defaulting to a location I don't want.

The documention doesn't seem to cover where to configure things when you've installed via a WAR file.  I would strongly prefer to make my changes in the teamcity app itself and keep things as de-coupled as possible, rather than to have to make special changes to tomcat.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?  Thanks.
