Initially, this was up and running just fine! However, I had set up my Solaris machine with too small of a virtual disk – only 8GB – and ran out of disk space and was unable to add additional Alf components (OOo integrartion, etc.)

Alfresco was installed in /opt/alfresco.

See this page for my writeup in the Alf wiki:

No problem, says I, I'll just add another disk! So I did, and moved the contents of /opt (which included Alfresco and MySQL and some other stuff) to the new disk, and mounted that on /opt. That basically worked, as near as I could tell (as in, the stuff in /opt all ran, such as MySQL and StarOffice), but Alfresco simple refused to start! I keep getting Alfresco 404's.

I know someone is going to say "post the log" so with that in mind, *which* logs should I post and where are they?

Also, if anyone has any ideas up front, that would obviously be great.

In the meantime I am sandblasting my Solaris VMWare install and starting over. But I do hate unsolved mysteries.

Thanks!
