Hi Martin,
you first have to create a project with the root folder "/". Then you can
create a new folder in this 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.
