Code pools

The folder code is a placeholder for what is called a codePool in Magento. Usually, there are three code pools in Magento, that is, three subfolders: community, core, and local.

The folder local is sometimes missing from the downloaded installation archive, as it is empty by default.

Let's take a deeper look at the community codePool for the default Magento installation as shown in the following diagram:

community/ └── Phoenix └── Moneybookers ├── Block │ ├── Form.php │ ├── ... │ └── Redirect.php ├── Helper │ └── Data.php ├── Model │ ├── Abstract.php │ ├── ... │ └── Wlt.php ├── controllers │ ├── MoneybookersController.php │ └── ProcessingController.php ├── etc │ ├── config.xml │ └── system.xml └── sql └── moneybookers_setup ├── install-1.6.0.0.php ...
