Thanks Jim.
You're right, the installer does write paths all over the place. My issue is with the compiled version. I'm not sure if the two are the same or not...

Also, for anyone else digging into this, I misspoke below about gsdlsite.cfg. I only have gsdlsite.cfg.in. I highlighted it again below in red.

From looking at the debug file and looking through the referenced file, the best I can guess is that some (or one) of the plugins is breaking or not being parsed - or an environment variable is wrong or stale.

Thank you,
Jay Clark

I've never had any luck with moving the software. The collections, yes. But the installer seems to put directory paths in all kinds of places. So, the software can't find things if they get moved around.

I'm having some difficulty moving a Greenstone 2 instance that I've compiled myself to another directory. Everything works just fine when I use the GLI and the server from the directory I built everything in, but when I try to move that folder (via SVN Export) to another folder (making sure there are no spaces in the path) and try to run the GLI from there, I get XML parse errors for some of the plugins.

I have found this page <http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Running_Greenstone> and followed the steps at the bottom for moving my installation to another folder. Unfortunately those steps do not work for me. The errors persist.

Technical Info:
OS: Windows 7 32-bit
GSDL: GS2 snapshot from 2010.10.12 (with a few of my own customizations to the web output)
Path: C:UsersjclarkDesktop runk
Browser: Any (default is Chrome)

I noticed that in my cgi-bin folder there is no gsdlsite.cfg file (only gsdlsite.cfg.in), and removing llssite.cfg and glisite.cfg make no difference.

I'll also attach the output of gli.bat -debug in case that reveals anything I haven't noticed yet.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Thank you,
Jay Clark
