I have install it now but somethimes when you delete a page it don't go away and if you delete it again then TomCat gives a lot of errors.. I just want to let you know this and I don't know if this is normal. and just an other question: is it possible to make a script that you really can delete a plugin in the control panel and not only disable it?

Sorry for my bad english..

thanks!

Is it possible to run this version as a windows service? by moddify the old (liferay 5 version) service.bat? because tomcat.exe isn't in the bin directory anymore!!
Posted on 3/4/10 3:12 AM.
Cool. It'd be nice if you guys put the word preview or something in the sourceforge file names to differentiate them from the final files that will replace them eventually.

Hi,

Thanks for replying but it doesn't work for some reason. Is there a supporting mysql database?
Posted on 3/5/10 9:07 AM in reply to Mika Koivisto.
Are you leaving the sample Seven Cogs data in? If so the login information will be different. For example bruno@7cogs.com / bruno
Posted on 3/5/10 11:03 AM in reply to Victor Skovorodnikov.
Hi,

Exactly, I just logged in from the start up page as Bruno Admin. It's quite beautiful with new UI emoticon

I just would like to thank Liferay developer team for keeping LR6's database structure similar to 5.2.3. We have synchronization app with other databases that inserts data into 5.2.3 so it looks like switching to LR6 won't require us to modify our synchronization app much. Thanks again.

Liferay 6.0 BUG !!

I suspected there is a bug when you change your language to xx (ie TR) after that when you click liferay (smal text showing the company name) it is sending you to localhost:8080/tr/tr whics is not exists.. I couldn find a way to solve this..

Any idea ?
