- use svn to checkout TWiki (unfortunately you get all the plugins too, grrr)
- set up htaccess (e.g. using tools/fixHtaccess.pl)
- run configure
- take the defaults for paths in General setup
- Note the logs paths.
The logs paths are not guessed the same way as the other paths. They are prefixed with / rather that TWikiRoot
As this is only an annoyance and I guess this only affects SVN checkouts I am setting it to Low.
RTFM, Martin. Once you have run configure once to set your initial paths, run it again (return to it) and check your log paths. They are now relative to $dataDir.
nonetheless, it would be less annoying if
were properly defaulted out of the box (this would be appreciated by the TWiki:Plugins.TWikiInstallerContrib
has also raised this issue before (perhaps without realising this was the issue specifically). this could certainly be improved, so i've reclassified it as an enhancement.
The log dirs are set up to be relative to DataDir
out of the box; i don;t believe any more is required.
