Moving WLS 1033 Developer Zip Location

I just ran into a usage issue with the WLS 10.3.3 Developer Zip file distribution that I thought I'd share.

What I did was to move the unzipped WLS Developer Zip from one directory location to another.

>mv /Users/sbutton/Java/wls-1033-dev /Users/Shared/Java

Upon doing that, I found I could no longer create new domains when the server was started, despite it working previously.

There are 1 nested errors:

After some head scratching, I finally realized it was probably to do with the security settings that are applied by the "configure.sh" script that needs to be executed when the zip file is first extracted.

After re-running configure.sh from the new directory location, the domain was then able to be created as normal.

So if you do move the directory holding the extracted WLS 10.3.3 Developer Zip distribution around, remember to run the configure.sh script again.
