Re: Open repository located on a network share in Windows

I can tell you that a network drive letter probably won't work. Windows
drive letter mappings are stored as part of the profile of Each User,
they are not machine wide (haven't been since nt4 i believe). This means
that even if you log in, make the mapping, Apache can't see it (unless
it's running in the same environment, not as a service).

The UNC path should work though. Can we get the error message in that
case?
