Hi, All

Well, I had gotten the same error message before.
And, in my case, it was (a shame to tell for me), because I didn't do 
 apachectl start.

Have you done apachectl start or something that before you started orca?

If not, there's some possibility orcallator.se couldn't measure data,
and data files didn't create in directory that defined at orcallator.se.

I hope you'll solve the problem.

Keiko. Y

  Subject: [orca-users] newbie question 'find_files'


  not sure where i am going wrong but i am getting this error:
  ./orca: warning: no files found for `find_files' for `group 
  orcallator' in `../lib/orcallator.cfg'. (see below)

  here is what i did: (solaris 8 as root)
  1) configured orca w/ only the --html-dir switch set. left everything 
  else default. make , make install
  2) installed all perl modules 
  3)installed SE toolkit 3.2
  4)ran start_orcallator 
  5) ran ./orca -v ../lib/orcallator.cfg
  6) got the following error. i can't figure what exactly i should be 
  putting in the config file for 'find_files'

  Thanx !

  error and cfg info below.
