Ummm, I think I've hit this before.  The problem has something to do with my attempt to set up a test URL.  I added a second URL to the Apache config. Instead of /codestriker/ pointing to the cgi-bin of the real installation, I can use /codestriker_tst/ to point to my staging area (and the same for the html URL).  But I think this is what confuses Codestriker.

I have two completely separate directories under /var/www/codestriker.  I ran bin/ in each.  Is there a way I can configure so that I can do staging experiments on a new version, without displacing the deployed version?

OK, I see there was a fix for binary svn files and changed properties, and it came in 1.9.7.  That may be why my situation does not work, since I've got 1.9.6.

So, I've now downloaded 1.9.9 and I'm trying to upgrade.  Did something change with the Help (now Manual) link?  I do not get the right URL:

I should point out that I'm trying to use vanilla 1.9.9 first, before I add all our changes to the .conf file, etc.  The only changes I did make to .conf was to set the user/pass for the DB and to empty out "valid_repositories" and add ours as the single element.

Is there something I forgot to set so Manual will actually point to the right place?

Hi David,

There has been support for that added in I am pretty sure 1.9.6.
Please try the latest release first - it should be able to handle most
