Tested with the installation instructions here:

I set up an aurweb instance the other, day, and there was a lingering issue that was present throughout the config for the whole thing.

All the aurweb packages (such as aurweb-git-update) are pointed to '/usr/local/bin' by default, but they're actually installed to '/usr/bin'.

This caused me to have to repoint several files in both the installation instructions and '/etc/aurweb/config'.

Is there any reason it's going to '/usr/local'? My best guess it that stuff would go there during testing, but the setup scripts don't even place things there in the first place.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  Paths are configurable in $AUR_CONFIG and the script location can be customized on install

Side note - I'm thinking I pulled from whatever branch is the default (I'm think it's master, but I'm not sure).

I'm not sure if that contributed to any issue or not.

I did some testing on my end, and the issue is present in the 5.0.0 branch as well.

Will update this in `INSTALL` so it's more clear for users:

Install the package on your Arch system with: `python install --install-scripts=/usr/local/bin`.

You can also modify where the scripts are called from inside of `$AUR_CONFIG`; see `conf/config.defaults` and search `/usr/local/bin` in there -- the script paths are all configurable.
