I am installing a virgin TWiki from SVN.

I have checked 15 times now that the bin/LocalLib.cfg contains

$twikiLibPath = "/var/www/twiki/lib";

My twiki installation is in /var/www/MAIN

and I have a symbolic link /var/www/twiki that point to /var/www/MAIN

All completely like I have always done it.

But configure will not start. It fails with

"Error: Could not find where LocalSite.cfg is supposed to go. Use your LocalLib.cfg to set $twikiLibPath to the 'lib' directory for your install. Please correct this error before continuing."

If I try to create a completely empty LocalSite.cfg in lib then I get a different error message which means that configure does find the right path in LocalLib.cfg and that the error it gives is bogus.

I have done a chown -R apache:apache /var/www/MAIN

And I have checked the access rights. There are no errors in the Apache log.

If I put an old LocalSite.cfg in lib then configure runs. So there is for sure a new bug in configure.


Yes, it was looking for TWiki.cfg when it should have been looking for TWiki.spec.

Because of where this impinged, I also checked in the checker for the passthrough dir, and some minor tweaks to DEPENDENCIES that have been waiting for ages, and it wasn't worth separating from the checkin.
