Subject: [SOLVED] problem after upgrading (indexdir missing)
I tried to upgrade the dokuwiki installation at http://culturesofcontrol.eu/dokuwiki/ to the new version. I followed the instructions at http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:install:upgrade. I deleted all dokuwiki-files on the server before uploading the new files.
No success: every time I get a message telling me: The indexdir ('index') is missing or not writable. All uploaded files are definitely writable by the server.
I reverted to the old version and it works just fine.
Does anybody have a clue how to get the new version to work?

Ye sI had the same trouble and it was explicated in the mailing list how to resolve it.
The index directory must be created in the /data/ directory. This index appeared only after the previous release.

I'll try that! Thanks! Maybe I should subscribe to the mailing list...

*edit*
Seems to have done the trick! But now the Upgrade message stays at the top of the page, even though I have made sure that conf/msg has an 8 in the first line.
And in the header it says: <meta name="generator" content="DokuWiki snapshot?" /> instead of the new version number...
