The User Data Directory is the place where Stellarium saves the configuration file, recorded scripts and can also be used to override files in the [[Installation Data Directory]] if the user wishes to customise Stellarium. The location of this directory varies depending on the operating system.

| Linux / BSD / other POSIX || ''$HOME/.stellarium'' where $HOME is your home directory.

|-
+
| Windows || This is the ''Stellarium'' sub-directory of your users application data directory (usually something like '''C:\Documents and Settings\YOURUSERNAME\Application Data\Stellarium''').
+
|-
+
| MacOS X || ''$HOME/Library/Preferences/Stellarium'' where $HOME is your home directory.

The directory tree within the User Data Directory is the same as the Installation Data Directory.  Any file which exists in the User Data Directory will over-ride that in the Installation Data Directory.
+
 
+
For example, to modify the position of a nebula texture, the user may copy the ''nebulae/default/nebula_textures.fab'' file from the Installation Data Directory to the ''nebulae/default'' sub-directory of the User Data Directory and modify it there.  In this manner, each user on a multi-user system may have their own customized Stellarium data files.

See the user guide for a more detailed description of these files.
