Subject Re: appserver.base setting variable !!
Date Wed, 05 Oct 2011 13:54:34 GMT
The repository paths default to this location, but you can definitely set an absolute path.
If you have access to the admin UI, you can go ahead and change it from the repositories tab.
Otherwise, you'd need to edit the ~/.m2/archiva.xml file created.

There are two things you likely need to change in the web app to not use the property at all:
- applicationContext.xml - this defines configuration loading locations, which you could customise
- log4j.xml - this defines where the logs are saved.
