I'm having a problem updating and would like to see if it's a "just me" situation or if anyone else is having a problem.
Does anyone know what this means
Hint: The database directory must be writable for UID 0 or GID 0
My problem seems to be with getting the incremental update, it fails and so has to download the full daily.cvd instead of patching it to become daily.cld, which means dowloading 2 MBs as opposed to a few KBs, or 6 minutes as opposed to a few seconds on a modem.
This has happened to me 4 times.
I have my copy of CWP .095.3 in the same directory and it updates fine.
Could it be that new CW does not like the length of the path? [see full path below]
If I move the New version to a different directory it works fine, but as I said the older version seems to have no problem with it's location.
Any help would be appreciated, as I am very confused
