Hi,

When installing a fresh openacs oacs-5-9 system on ubuntu 14.04 LTS using scripts at github.com/gustafn/install-ns.git

Server is showing the following error after posting initial startup form:

Hi Ben,

we are just in the progress of a series of cleanup/performance improvements of the content repository, which we have tested so far just for the upgrade scripts (the latest version runs on openacs.org) and not jet for fresh installs. I have fixed the problems above.

Actually, the default for fresh installs in install-oacs.sh should be the released tar versions, and not the CVS version. I've changed this in the install scripts on github as well.

many thanks

Okay, thank you, Gustaf. I'm really impressed at all the activity that continues to evolve OpenACS.
best wishes,
Ben
