Hi,

Is there an easy way that I can get Zope to use the 
local file system instead of ZODB? I basically want to 
make it share the local file system with Apache.

Will the LocalFS product do what I want?

I looked at it, and so far it seems to do the trick.
I'm not sure what limitations I might encounter.
So far I can't move files between a real Zope directory
and a LocalFS directory.

I guess I'm just looking for advice to see if I'm on the
right track.

What we really want to do is to provide a second view to
/var/www/htdocs for Apache. I understand that Apache won't
serve up our dynamic content, but that's not important.
Zope is just viewed as a better solution for managing our
static documents. The problem we have in my organization is 
that there is a lot of resistance to my prototype Zope 
document management system due to the fact that everything is
stored in ZODB. We think this risky -- possibly a data prison. 
Also people don't want to change from their current habits of 
editing files via NFS or Samba mounted directories. My original
plan was to allow them some sort of syncronization process,
but now I think that would be crazy.

Yours,
Noah
