Description of problem:
After install, can't login to web apps, always get an error:
Authentication failed because the server was unable to generate authentication credentials. The authentication database could not be opened.
Note the RPM's postscript:
if [ ! -d /var/run/dirsrv/dsgw/cookies ] ; then
mkdir -p /var/run/dirsrv/dsgw/cookies
Doesn't seem to be happening.
