Yeah, my housekeeping probably leaves something to be desired. :-) I would
like to have things cleaner, so I appreciate your tips.
As I've been building my system I've been using a convention of putting the
source files in /usr/local which is why the Mapserver source is there. It's
convenient for me but I would agree it's probably not good to mix the source
and binaries in one area. What is your recommended location for source
Installing Cartoweb in /srv/www/htdocs/ so that the path is
/srv/www/htdocs/cartoweb is a new one on me. I don't recall seeing mention
of doing that, but my not doing that may also reflect my newness to entire
process. I will unpack the .tgz into that directory and try again. Thanks
for the suggestion!
I totally agree that having php_mapscript.po in my cartoweb htdocs directory
is not the intended location. I still have something amiss in a config that
I need to try to sort out. At least it's working now so I have a starting
point from which to start some testing.
THANK YOU again for your patience and assistance. BTW, I have some visitors
coming in today, so I may be offline for a few weeks before I can get back
to this and/or reply to messages.
Best regards, Robert
