Hi! I'm trying to install archiva 1.0.1 on Linux as a standalone application as running in JBoss gives various errors.
The archiva admin guide for standalone installation  says | However, the best way to use this installation technique is to separate | the configuration from the installation to make it easy to upgrade to | newer versions in the future. I tried to follow these steps exactly as explained. However, it seems this does not work at all. First, there is no 'data'-directory as mentioned in step 2 (I ignored this for now). Second, as archiva should now hold it's data in the PLEXUS_BASE directory, I thought it shouldn't need to write to the installation directory (PLEXUS_HOME) which seems not to be true. If write access to the PLEXUS_HOME directory is denied archiva startup fails. So I granted write permissions to this directory. Third, the user- and artifact- database seem to be created in the installation base (PLEXUS_HOME) and not PLEXUS_BASE, as PLEXUS_HOME now contains new directories data/archiva and data/users with lots of files in it. Has anybody successfully tried to perform a separation of installation and data in archiva 1.0.1? Any comments are welcome. tia, - martin  http://maven.apache.org/archiva/docs/1.0.1/adminguide/standalone.html -- Martin Höller | [EMAIL PROTECTED] *x Software + Systeme | http://www.xss.co.at/ Karmarschgasse 51/2/20 | Tel: +43-1-6060114-30 A-1100 Vienna, Austria | Fax: +43-1-6060114-71
