Invalid installation directory

If the fastcgi does not start and the Genero Application Server displays "Invalid installation directory", examine the environment and the GAS log directory permissions.

Examine two items:

  • The FGLASDIR environment variable must be set to the Genero Application Server installation directory.
  • The Genero Application server may have been installed by a different user than the one starting the fastcgi (typically, the user owning the web server process). To start the Genero Application Server, the user needs permissions on the Genero Application Server log directories and $FGLASDIR/tmp.
