rename the root-Ordner in BOE

I have a curios situation at a customer installation: Dev systems root folder is named: root Folder – like usual And Prod systems root folder is named: root-Ordner – the german translation of this folder. So the user itself is using EN settings the rest of the systems shows the English names of language depending folder names but the path to certain resources like files for Designstudio – is different on DEV and PROD – so how to rename the root-Ordner to root Folder? Any ideas? Wobi

    YOu cannot rename the root folder. Probably you might have installed only German version in PROD.

    You can NOT rename the "root folder", it's the system default. What is the workflow for your path creation? If you specify the path using EN language it should work fine. Even when creating a "Document Link", it uses CUID # and not name.

    Language should NOT be an issue creating Document links, see below sample using CUID

    When promoting content from DEV - QA - PROD, it uses CUID's NOT names. This not cause any issues.

      Since the client installation has english as Default language and all other lanaguages are additional language packs - this process should also be valid for the Server Installation. EN as Default and additional language Packs. The server installation documentation is not clear that the presented Setup language will also determine a language as dominant one. I always install in EN per Default. So this did not happen in my installations . But it should not be possible to do a irreversible language split on the Server! That's a fault in the current Setup design.
