Hi Stefan,

Thanks for the report. I just commited a patch for this.

I saw that before on my Ubuntu, so I was not using a sub-directory in the /var/run directory for the pid files.

Then I had to add the "apacheds-1.5.2-SNAPSHOT" directory back to be able to launch the server with the 'apacheds' user and I completely forgot this issue.

Anyway, it should be fixed now. I'm going to ask Alex if he can generate new deb and bin installers on his Ubuntu laptop.

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow in Amsterdam, Stefan.

       Kick the Tires: Installers

       Various native installers for the build are available here:


       Therein you'll find installers for windows, macosx, and various
       flavors of Linux.  Where applicable there are 64-bit and 32-bit
       versions of the installers.

       Note a suite installer is included for ApacheDS and Studio
       combined.  This will install both and configure a connection in
       Studio to connect to ApacheDS.

   I found the following problem on Ubuntu 7.10 and 8.04 beta: /var/run
   is mounted as a tmpfs. After a restart all its content is purged.
   When trying to start with

    $sudo /etc/init.d/apacheds-1.5.2-SNAPSHOT-default console

   I get the message

   wrapper  | ERROR: Could not write pid file
   /var/run/apacheds-1.5.2-SNAPSHOT/ No such file or directory

   because /var/run/apacheds-1.5.2-SNAPSHOT doesn't exist.

   We have to take care to mkdir /var/run/apacheds-1.5.2-SNAPSHOT in
   the init script if it doesn't exits.

   Kind Regards,
