Subject Re: changing directory of ldif/data
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2011 20:06:26 GMT
again, I doubt that the service is getting started even before you
call this startServer()
can you check the other function(s) which are called before calling
startServer()
(and post that code if you still have issues, if it is sensitive share
with me the relevant parts alone)
