Is the __index.redirect file required?

I have noticed when I downloaded the source for 2.1.7 that the __index.redirect page was not included in the .zip file.

It is also not in the binary release nor the beta package.

Is this file required? I could not get the forum to startup properly in Netbeans (w/ Sun App Server 9.0) until I copied the __index.redirect file from an old 2.1.6 folder into my 2.1.7 project.
In fact, there is code that looks to see if __index.redirect is writable and will fail if the file is not there.

From InstallAction.java



I can create an issue for this if this is the case.

Thanks,
E/.

What do you mean by "start up"?

I don't know what that file is for, but I would imagine that if you "installed manually" (not through the web interface install - which I have never done) then it would work.

I'd imagine that that file would only be needed in the non-source distribution for people that didn't muck with source files and command line stuff. But, I could be wrong about that.

I have fixed this problem in the CVS 2.1.7-r4 version today.
You can check it out...
And I suggest Rafael or Jakob to release b4 if necessary.
