Error install PersonalInfo plugin
I installed PersonalInfo
*First 10 detected errors of insufficient, or excessive permissions, and all instances of missing files.*
/var/lib/foswiki/data/_PersonalInfoAddOnFiles missing WebPreferences topic
/var/lib/foswiki/data/_PersonalInfoAddOnFiles/verify_you_don_t_overwrite_when_copying_to_user_web missing WebPreferences topic
/var/lib/foswiki/data/_PersonalInfoAddOnFiles/copy_to_user_web missing WebPreferences topic
You can safely ignore these errors.
Unfortunately the plugin was built before some of the checkers were added to the configuration tool. This is telling you that the directories have been loaded into the data directory but you will be unable to access them directly using the Foswiki web interface.
Foswiki defines a valid web as a directory that contains a file named "WebPreferences.txt". These directories don't have that file, so configure is telling you that there is some inaccessible data in your installation. Also directories starting with the underscore are defined by foswiki as "Template webs", but again, without the WebPreferences
topic, they are somewhat orphaned.
You can ignore these errors, and do the installation work from your server shell, copying files from the
directories to the Main directory as desired. Or, if you'd like to be able to look at them and copy them with the Foswiki web interface, copy a
file from the
directory into the
directory and sub-directories.
