Unable to create repository using jackrabbit-webapp because a directory called "jackrabbit" already exists

      Description

      I mount the jackrabbit-webapp.war in a Jetty installation

      • at startup i have the following exception:
        ERROR RepositoryStartupServlet: Either create thejackrabbit/bootstrap.properties file or
        ERROR RepositoryStartupServlet: use the '/config/index.jsp' for easy configuration.
        ERROR RepositoryStartupServlet: RepositoryStartupServlet initializing failed: javax.servlet.ServletException: Repository startup configuration is not valid.
      • then when i access http://localhost:8080/ i am forwarded to the page:
        http://localhost:8080/bootstrap/missing.jsp
      • creating the repository by clicking on "Create Content Repository" button fails complaining that the jackrabbit directory already exists

      Indeed, i find a jackrabbit directory in my JETTY_HOME (from where is started Jetty).

      A workaround is to delete this "jackrabbit" directory and then i can create the repository by clicking on the previous button and therefore access the newly created repository.
