Hello Martin,
you have to select one or more existing folder when
creating a new project. You can do so with
folder icon next to the input field. All resources
in these folders can be edited in your project, all
other resources can not be changed in the new project.

Betreff: [opencms-dev] Problem creating project


I get an error when creating a project and I think it's me somehow but I
can't explain it.

These are the details of how I proceeded:

- I installed Tomcat (jakarta-tomcat-4.0.1) and the latest release of
OpenCMS (4.4.6 major). The Server installs fine, I think. Well at least I
don't get any error messages. I walk through all the steps that are
mentioned in the online server install manual and then login into the

- I then change the password of the Admin user which works fine too.

- Following the user documentation (User Guide 4.0) I then try to create a
new project, which fails !!!!

The Folder I specify is /examples/ (like in the manual). 

I didn't find the "examples" folder in the explorer before creating the
project but I suspect that's OK. Or not ? Gimme a hint please.

The Error I get is:

Leider konnte das Projekt nicht angelegt werden.

Grund: Die Projektdateien sind ungültig oder falsch eingegeben.

[CmsException]: 2 Not Found. Detailed Error:
[com.opencms.file.mySql.CmsDbAccess] /examples/.

What am I doing Wrong ? Am I missing out on something BIIIIG ? Did I forget
to do something ?

What is happening there anyways ? Where is the new Folder supposed to be
created or is it a table creation in the database or something similar ? I
just don't get the error somehow. If I had clue I'd be willing to hack
around with you guys but I feel that I somehow need to get that running
first. Is there already a documentation out there ? Otherwise I'd be willing
to try to write a doc cause that's what I'm missing most.
