Subject Store Repository
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2000 02:10:22 GMT

Thanks in advance to anybody who helps with this problem of mine.

I'm having the "Can't create store repository" problem with a slight
variant. I've checked the mail archives and the BBS at but
haven't been able to get it right based on previous advice. I'm running
apache 1.3.9 with Jserv 1.1 on Linux and Jserv is installed and working
fine. The Cocoon error message is as follows:

Publishing Engine could not be initialized.

      java.lang.RuntimeException: Can't create store repository:
/./repository. Make sure it's there or you have writing permissions.

Cocoon is in the default ApacheJserv servlet zone named "root" with the
associated properties file named At present this file shows
the following config items that pertain to Cocoon:

Repository directory ->
Init Params ->

Where should the "repository" directory be located?
Do I need to create the "repository" directory with 755 permissions?
Can anybody tell me what the (Compiled Code) error in the error message

I'm sure the problem is staring me in the face but I'm relatively new ilnux
and Apache so any help would be great!!
