Re: InstantDB: Permission stories


Paul

By default the .prp file contains

traceFile=./trace.log

i.e. A relative pathname. However, unlike table paths, the trace path is
relative to the current directory, i.e. the directory where the serverlet
started. Is it possible that it's this dorectory that InstantDB is trying to
write to? Try setting traceFile to an absolute path as a way of testing.
