Hey there, I'm getting a "could not create backup copy" error when I try to save a document in OpenOffice 1.1.4 under freebsd 4.11; this particular file I'm editing is a symlink from ~/MyDocuments/Shipping Board.sxc to /usr/local/www/data/shipping.sxc.

Could the symlink itself be causing the issue, or is it more likely to be the location of the shipping.sxc file? (Based on permissions, it should be possible to write to the file, and to create a second file in that folder if necessary)

I'm going to poke around some more and try to find a solution; sadly this means I might lose my changes. Ah well, nothing major at this point. If you have any ideas, please let me know. The goal is to create an intranet-accessible spreadsheet doc that I can quickly update - later to be replaced by an interactive PHP application/applet/mini-app. Smile

Hrm, it looks like if I edit the file directly, things work fine - but if I use the symlink, it goes wonky. Kind of odd.

Hi:

I, too, get the "could not create backup copy" error. The error is easy to replicate:

dir > original.txt
ln -s original.txt link-to-original.txt
dir original.txt link*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 user 12 2006.03.03 14:54:43 link-to-original.txt -> original.txt
-rw------- 1 user 3.7K 2006.03.03 14:55:10 original.txt
ooffice link-to-original.txt
ooffice original.txt

I can edit "orignial", but not "link-to-original".

I've replicated this under the word processor and the spreadsheet.

I'm using RedHat WSv4===> openoffice 1.1.12.

I appreciate your suggestions.

RD



PS I'm posting this to these two threads. The first mentions the
problem with linked files, but there are no replies.
