Upon upgrading from JSPWiki v2.0.52 to v2.2.27 I get this in the catalina.out file anytime I try to access the main page...\\ \\

...\\ \\

Any clues as to how to fix this? Is it a bug or is it my setup? Nothing in the logs is very helpful in figuring out what is actually at fault here.


This error occurs if your jspwiki.properties does not contain the proper page provider set.  Please see also the JSPWiki error log (see jspwiki.properties).  Typical problems are: empty provider class set up, or an extra space after the page provider name.

Closing, we should now be giving more useful info in 2.4.
