• Do not register here on develop.twiki.org, login with your twiki.org account.
• Use View topic Item7848 for generic doc work for TWiki-6.1.1. Use View topic Item7851 for doc work on extensions that are not part of a release. More... Close
• Anything you create or change in standard webs (Main, TWiki, Sandbox etc) will be automatically reverted on every SVN update.
Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

To reproduce:

  • copy a web from Cairo (can be the standard Sandbox web)
  • create a new topic and try to attach a file to it

RCS: failed to create /home/terceiro/src/twiki/dakar/pub/CSandbox/TestTopic8: No such file or directory

It looks like form some reason the topic directory in pub is not being created, but it does work on post-Cairo webs. Weird.

it works when the user is a member of the TWikiAdminGroup, but doesn't work when the user is a "regular" one.

additional info: yes, I have chown'ed and chmod'ed with -R the directories.

and worse, i can't re-produce it on my systems - so i'm going ot move it to normal (not holding up release)

The 8606 version works OK, no errors (the version from before Item1453):

sub _mkPathTo {
    my $file = shift;

    my @components = split( /(\/+)/, $file );
    pop( @components );
    my $path = '';
    for my $dir ( @components ) {
        if( $dir =~ /\/+/ ) {
            $path .= '/';
        } else {
            $path .= $dir;
            # use -e rather than -d for speed
            if( $path && !-e $path ) {
                mkdir( $path, $TWiki::cfg{RCS}{dirPermission} ) ||
                  throw Error::Simple('RCS: failed to create '.$path.': '.$!);

It seems the eval in the new version is complaining of something not untainted?

Insecure dependency in mkdir while running with -T switch at /usr/share/perl/5.8/File/Path.pm line 150.
