source: trunk/TROUBLESHOOTING @ 85

Last change on this file since 85 was 85, checked in by kake, 19 years ago

Bumped version number.
Redid the script and template installation so the script does actually get called what you said it should be (code copied somewhat from Siesta::Build).
Also you now need to specify the template installation directory.
Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication. I think.

  • Property svn:eol-style set to native

11If you see the following message in your webserver error logs:
12
13  "Unable to tie -map_name [...] datafiles directory [...] does not exist
14   and cannot be created."
15
16This means that the directory you specified in your configuration as
17"indexing_directory" does not exist and cannot be created by the user
18that your CGI is running as.  This might mean one of two things:
19
20 - you've specified an indexing_directory within your own webspace but
21   your CGIs are running not as you but as a dedicated webserver user
22   such as 'nobody' or 'www-data'
23
24or
25
26 - you've specified an indexing_directory in a place that you're not
27   allowed to write to
28
29or a combination of both.  Your ISP or sysadmin might be able to help you
30further with this problem if you can't figure it out yourself.
