Local Server issues

I’ve had trouble with local Blynk server on the Raspberry Pi so today I started from scratch.

As I intend to use WEBMIN to automate start up - I installed the files in /var/blynk - giving it 777 permissions - and ran the following in ROOT

java -jar /var/blynk/server-0.10.2.jar -dataFolder /var/blynk &

The program utterly ignored the directive for dataFolder and installed the logs in my root folder.

Can someone explain why the above setup is ignoring the -dataFolder directive and installing the logs in the root folder?
