    2. Ontologies Cache Path folder
      1. This is the path of the folder where ontologies cache files get saved on the server. This is used to to save the cache of the ontologies. These caches are used by OSF for Drupal and OSF.
    3. Ontologies ironXML Schema Cache Path folder
      1. This is the path of the folder where ironXML Schemas cache files get saved on the server. This is used to to save the cache of the ontologies in ironXML schemas. These caches are mainly used by the OSF widgets. This folder should be accessible on the web so that any OSF widget has access to them.
    4. Ontologies ironJSON Schema Cache Path folder

Note about Ontologies Files: The ontologies files and paths settings are used in a OSF (Open Semantic Framework) single server instance. These paths tells the OSF Ontology module where to save, load ontologies and where to generate sub-structures. These need to be properly configured when you want to use OSF Ontology to administer ontologies on your server.
