Hey Michael,

Have you restarted your MapGuide service since adding the aliases?  I
think that was necessary at some point; not sure if it still is.

Also, are the ECW files local to your server?  If not, you'll need to
run your MapGuide Server service as a domain user with access to the
network shares.

If this doesn't work, use the raw (not custom) data source editor and
just put the full path to one of your ECWs in there and see if that
works.  The GDAL provider page in the FDO Trac has instructions on how
to start MapGuide with GDAL debugging turned on, so you can see what's
going on when you're trying to access the image.


Nice to see yet another local user on the list. :)

Subject: [mapguide-users] external file alias in sie admin is not

As far as I know I have the latest install of mapguide and maestro. I
done the 'manual upgrade of the FDO providers'. I have also installed
'extra files' for ECW/MrSID files.
All installs appear to gone to completion and no errors reported.

However, I must be missing somthing on the steps to take to browse or
otherwise point a new dataresource to my ecw files.  Within Mapguide
admin I
have setup an alias. But when I try to use it within Maestro I get the
"There are no folders mapped. Please set up folders in the Alias section
the MapGuide Site Administrator"

Does anyone have any suggestions on this problem and the proper steps to
point to the locations of ECW files.

Thank you for your help.
