I managed to completely screw up permissions on the folder that contained the AGS directories. Was able to create new directories for cache, jobs, and output and pointed System tools to these new folders, but am unable to create a new system directory without having access to the old one.
Does anyone know where I could manually change the path for the system directory to bypass having to copy the old data? I'm looking at trying to change the paths through the admin interface, but wanted to reach out to the community before I took that next step. Not confident that it's going to be any different than changing paths in the manager interface.
