    Hi all,

    This is my first post in this forum so hello to everyone.

    This is my problem:
    I got alfresco working on another machine one year ago (should be ubuntu 9.04 desktop) and now I'm trying to reinstall everything on a fresh install of ubuntu server 10.04 (x64).

    I found this excellent tuto on how to forge but i'm stuck at the end (9.3) for a permission problem.

    here is my terminal output:
    Permission non accordée = permission denied (in french)

    As I installed everything in root and all files seem to belong to root, I really dont understand the error. Does some of you already encounter this problem of know how to work around ?

    Thanks in advance

    Do you see something abnormal ?

    I edit this post to add some details of my install as it could perhaps help anyone to get an idea:

    I wanted to install alfresco on a separate partition (lvm type). So I mount this partition in /media/GED.
    I then created an alfresco directory under /media/GED and I finally simlinked /opt/alfresco to point to this directory.
    That is the only thing which is not exactly as the "how to"
    I don't think this can come from this but it's always better to explain !!

    Is it possible to install it on one computer then just copy the registry files and use it on another computer? T His might save us time but is this possible? I have been doing this on games. playpokiesonline

    Permissions look ok. Did you disable AppArmor?

    Thank you all...

    Apparmor was not disable... That's a good idea. I will try tomorrow without it.

    What kind of registyry files are you talking about ? all the tomcat directory ?
