Description

I have installed the latest package of SCM creator, but I don’t seem to be able to create repositories! When I navigate to the “Repositories” tab of the project and choose to create one, I fill in the relevant fields and click “Create” I just see the message “Adding local repositories was denied by the administrator” above the form. I will try and post my logs when I get home tonight.

The repository already exists in the file system, right?..

See Configuration#allow_add_local...

#2 Updated by Alastair McFarlane about 10 years ago

Aha, I had not seen this configuration option! Is that seperate from the ability to use filesystem repositories (which I do not want)?

This has nothing to with the “Filesystem” repository type.

#4 Updated by Alastair McFarlane about 10 years ago

Sorry, it was mentioned near it in the documentation so I wasn’t sure!

I’ve changed that setting and it no longer throws the error, although I don’t see any change on the filesystem when I browse using a terminal. Should this exist already, or only when I add some source to it? Do I have to create the folder first?

Sorry for the late reply – did not get the question... You mean it does not create any folder for the repository? If so – there should be something wrong with permissions.
