What is a project?
A BOINC project consists of the following components:
- A MySQL database
- A directory structure
- A configuration file, which specifies options, daemons, and periodic tasks.
Multiple BOINC projects can exist on the same host. This can be handy for creating separate projects for testing and debugging.
The easiest way to create a project is with the make_project script, which creates all the above components.
