Hi Fred,

(1.5.7) docs but they don't seem to match up (cant find server.xml in 2.0 for example).

Actually, the documentation for ApacheDS 2.0 is missing ATM. The 1.5.x documentation needs
to be duplicated and updated to match the modifications that were made for 2.0.

FYI, the server.xml file does not exist anymore. It has been replaced by a single 'config.ldif'
LDIF file (in the conf folder of the instance).

If you're on Snow Leopard (should work the same on Lion too, but I haven't tested yet), you
need to remove the following installation receipts files:

Hope this helps,
