Suppose you want to rearrange an existing TWiki installation.

If you change the "TemplateDir" via the "configuration" page, the entres for "TemplatePath" and "MimeTypesFileName" in "LocalSite.cfg" are not updated to reflect this change.

These values will still use the old, no longer valid, path.

And then you get the "TWiki Installation ErrorTemplate - "oopsattention" not found - Check the configuration settings for {TemplateDir} and {TemplatePath}." error.
