Try removing the trailing backslash from the dataDir setting.

Re: Config.php - datadir - lkoumis - 03-02-2010

Yes., Thank you it did it.

you don't need the railing backlash for the datadir in windows.....

Re: Config.php - datadir - lkoumis - 03-02-2010

SOLVED. THanks to a tip, the trailing baclash is not needed for the datadir setting for the windows platform. I don't know about linux.

Re: Config.php - datadir - Stephen - 03-02-2010

I need to fix the comment in the config file then. I think it says to put one for windows.

Re: Config.php - datadir - randallw - 04-06-2010

I have a similar issue. When I have our datadir rem'd out, I get to the login screen, but I cannot get past the admin login. I displays There is a problem with your dataDir. Check to make sure it exists and is writeable

When i un rem the datadir. I get a Page can not be displayed.
Not sure where to go with this. I have made sure permissions are all ok. I can browse to the folder in IE just fine??

// Uncomment this one for Windows - Don't forget the trailing backslash "\"
'dataDir' => 'C:\Web\Apache22\htdocs\opendocman\data\',
// Uncomment this one for Linux - Don't forget the trailing slash "/"
'dataDir' => '/var/www/document_repository/',

Found the issue. Needed to have a config_local.php file with the following information in it.

Make sure that you have you whacks going the correct way

config_local.php - OpenDocMan local config file

Re: Config.php - datadir - Stephen - 04-07-2010

I think the issue is actually the path format for Windows. In the current SVN version I have made some changes to the comments regarding the dataDir on Windows. Using forward slashes instead of backslashes I think is what works best.

Re: Config.php - datadir - outshine - 04-16-2010

I was having the same problem, but in my case it was because the web server was not providing me the correct path to the web site's root directory. I ended up doing this, which worked fine:

'dataDir' => $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/documents/data',

$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] is PHP and returns the directory path to your web site's root directory.
