After you make install, the OT Server will be named opentxs-notary and most likely will be located in /usr/local/bin

You can then probably run it simply by typing: opentxs-notary

I recommend finding some sample data to get it up and running at first, before you try to create your own server contract.

If you run it with blank data, it will walk you through the process of creating a fresh server. You will want to use the Moneychanger GUI as well, during this process.

OT creates the ~/.ot folder, including the server's folder: ~/.ot/server_data (That is where the otserver will normally look, by default, to load its data.)

The main datafile is: ~/.ot/server_data/notaryServer.xml

When you first start playing with OT, be sure to keep an eye on the server output while you are running your client, so you can see what is happening on the server side.
