Subject Re: Installation Troubles
Date Wed, 26 Apr 2000 22:52:52 GMT
Are you using the latest version of Cocoon (1.7.2)? Have you looked through 
the recent mailing list archives? Have you read the FAQ? What precisely is 
the 404 error you get from /Cocoon.xml ? Have you installed cocoon on the 
webserver root?

Also, installation questions should be asked on the cocoon-users list first, 
not cocoon-dev which is for developers working on the Cocoon code itself 
(and onlookers).
