[Cartoweb-dev] map file CONNECTION without absolute paths?

I forgot to change CONNECTIONTYPE to local. Did it now and included the
filename in the DATA attribute. Anyway, it doesn't work:

Error in msSHPOpenFile():

I also tried it with extension (arc.adf) and without specifying the
filename (only the folder). I get the same error :-(

Thanks in Advance
