Subject AW: AW: moving to different hardware
Date Thu, 16 Dec 2010 12:06:09 GMT
Hi,

Today was the day.
We copied all the files (install folder and project folder) und set the variables.
Unfortunately it's not working.

We did the following:

We copied apache-forrest and workflow-dok (that's our project) to C:\forrest\.
We set the Variables to:

FORREST_HOME = C:\forrest\apache-forrest\
Path = ...;%FORREST_HOME%\bin

We did a restart and the variables are set properly.
If we enter 'forrest run' it says that it does not recognize forrest as a command.

We've also tried to run the forrest.bat directly with 'forrest.bat run'.
It starts running but the build fails with an error that it can't find a documentation folder
in C:\forrest\apache-forrest\. That's weird because our project-folder is C:\forrest\workflow-dok
anyway. 

What are we doing wrong ?!

PS: I can't take a look at the configuration of our old server since it is not located in
the same building (or country) and i have no remote-acced.

Thanks in advance

Kind regards

Most set FORREST_HOME to the apache Forrest root and then include FORREST_HOME/bin on the
path.  As such, it would then be system wide.

Most of this is RTFM at http://forrest.apache.org/docs_0_90/your-project.html#Setting+up+the+Environment.

Best of luck and enjoy Forrest!
