Is this a problem? How do I check?

This is what I got. I am not sure how to understand it.

As a matter of fact: on the server there is nor a 
/var/www/html/chiari/texmf directory  neither a usr/local/share/texmf one. 
There is not a teTex sub-directory under /usr/share/texmf.

How can I check?

Can I put everything under my personal directory /var/www/html/chiari? Am I 
going to mess up with other users (of my IPS'server)? (I am not going to 
delete/overwrite anything which is on the server) More importnat, I would 
rather fix the present (broken?) installation than to do a new one.
