them if they exist.

ManifoldCF does not only consist of a set of web applications, but
also the agents process.  It sounds like you did not start the agents
process, which is why nothing seems to be working for you.  How to do

In the multiprocess setup, be careful to not skip the setup of a
synchronization directory.

Please let me know whether this helps.
