The distributed LocalSite.cfg.txt in 4.0.3 uses incorrect syntax, so a straightforward edit of the file will not produce a working TWiki. For example:

$TWiki::$cfg{DefaultUrlHost} = 'http://your.domain.com';

The $cfg is wrong, it should be cfg. The corrected line would be:

$TWiki::cfg{DefaultUrlHost} = 'http://your.domain.com';

This same error is on every line that attempts to set a configuration variable. Note that the last such line has 2 incorrect references:

$TWiki::$cfg{LogDir} = $TWiki::$cfg{DataDir};

Both the left and right hand sides are incorrect.

Yes. That should be fixed.

I do not see this as a bug demanding a 4.0.4 release because the file is in reality not used for anything. Configure creates a fresh new LocalSite.cfg when you run it the first time. So I doubt many will ever notice. But it should be fixed and it should be listed in Known Problems. Hotfix is not really needed either.

But the installation docs are not clear about this. INSTALL.html says (step 5): Create the file /twiki/bin/LocalLib.cfg. Because the txt file is distributed it looks like I should rename LocalSite.cfg.txt to LocalSite.cfg (I believe this was the procedure once).


Sorry, got LocalSite and LocalLib mixed up.


Release in 4.0.4. Closing
