I have recently put Sakai 2.7 on a local Ubuntu server ( 
Now my mission is changing the welcome text on Gateway and MyWorkspace. 

I logged on as admin and from Resources>Public, I created 2 HTML files: 
- server_info1.html, 
- myworkspace_info1.html 

then edited the settings in sakai.properties: 
- server.info.url =
- myworkspace.info.url =

However, on the Gateway, under "Welcome", I got a 404 error message :( 

Ignored this message, I continued with admin account and on My Workspace,
under "My Workspace Information" I got a blank page (nothing) and the
browser asked me if I want to download the file myworkspace_info1.html?
(Well, the myworkspace_info setting seems correct, but Sakai acted weird as
offer downloading rather than showing). 

I have tried with serveral different options such as: 
- localhost/access/content/public/server_info1.html 
- /access/content/public/server_info1.html 
but there was no luck. 

I tried to locate those files on my server (looking around /tomcat folder
- /library/content/server_info.html 
- /access/content/public/server_info1.html 
but I could not find the folders and the files. 

Could you please help me with: 

- The correct path of the files server_info1.html/myworkspace_info1.html
which were created on Resources>Public by admin. 

- The physical location (on server) of the default files
server_info.html/myworkspace_info.html (Say, I want to edit the content of
the original files) 

Thanks a lot,
