I am trying to install Dspace 1.6.2 as advised by you. I just followed the steps in the manual. In Step 8, when i say ant fresh_install, it says build failed. Here is the err msg.  Could you please tell me where did I make mistake in dspace.cfg. Thank you.

Again, as I told you, don't develop on a production machine! Do all I
told you on a PC or laptop, not on the server. When your module is
working, only then you will deploy it on the server.

You will only make a database connection from your development machine
to the Dryad database. Or even better, copy over the Tpeople table to
a separate database on your development machine.

If you rush these things, you will most likely break one or both of
your production DSpace installations.
