dataDir problem - Stephen - 01-12-2010

I've installed and tried various combinations and cannot get this to work. I guess I don't understand where this data folder needs be located, how I put it there, and if I leave it's path alone in the config file (/var/www/document_repository/)


Re: dataDir problem - Stephen - 01-12-2010

The dataDir simply has to be a full pathname to a directory that the webserver can write to. On a standard Fedora 11 machine (or most other Linux systems), which you have root access on, it can be created like this:

# mkdir -p /var/www/document_repository
# chown apache:apache /var/www/document_repository

If you're using a shared hosting machine, then consult their documentation; you may just have to pick another directory path.
