Ferret with relative index paths



I have ferret working fine on my Dev machine using a relative index
path as follows:

USER_INDEX = Index::Index.new(:path => “indexes/user”, :key => ‘id’,
:auto_flush => true)

And the indexes/user directory is located directly off the root of my
project tree.

But when I migrate this same code to my shared TextDrive account,
Ferret cannot find the index directory and throws this exception:

`initialize’: There is no directory: indexes/user. Use create = true
to create one (RuntimeError)

Do I have to use absolute paths? Or is it perhaps looking somewhere
else for the root of its relative paths in different environments?
