ElectricSheep.IO uses specific directories to manipulate files and directories both on remote hosts and on the localhost. In both cases, it defaults to the
~/.electric_sheep directory and automatically creates subdirectories to handle each job separately.
For remote hosts, it's a subdirectory of the home directory of the user which is used to open the SSH connection.
To override the local working directory, use the top-level
working_directory instruction in your Sheepfile. For remote hosts, the working directory is defined specifically for each host:
working_directory "/var/backups" host "db", hostname: "db.example.com", working_directory: "/tmp/backups"
