Hi Michael

Greenstone used to be installed to gsdl, and now it uses greenstone.
Either is fine as long as all the paths are consistent.

The following comes from a previous message on the mailing list:

After spending quite some time trying to get GSDL to function on a
Windows Server 2003 machine running IIS 6.0, I finally discovered that,
when library.exe was called, it created an empty gsdlconf.cfg file in
the %GSDLHOME% directory. It then tried to use this configuration file
to run GSDL. Of course, there were no settings so I received an error
every time it ran. After I moved the real gsdlconf.cfg file from the
bin directory into the %GSDLHOME% directory, everything worked.
[endquote]

I assume he means gsdlsite.cfg. Check the one in greenstone - if its
empty, then copy the one from cgi-bin.

Once you get it all working it would be great to have installation notes
for IIS. Thanks :-)

Cheers,
Katherine
