Hi there

In some cases, when using a setup with several different domains and symlinks to the same folder, it can happen that the extension paths get resolved in a wrong way.

This happens in
when the cached extension path (absolute from the cached Packages) is stripped from the current PATH_site.
This results in something like "o3conf/ext/...", because the current PATH_site is longer than the cached version.

Either this should be addressed by default using the PATH_site in the caching identifier or, if this is too strict, by way of configuring it.

=> I made a patch using the old $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['EXT']['extCache'] variable

Please let me know what you think.

Cheers Nils

This has been resolved by including PATH_site in the cache identifier, so that we have different cache entries for different PATH_sites

However, we would greatly benefit from only storing the relative (to PATH_site) path in the package objects, so that we can remove the PATH_site from the cache identifier again and cache the information only once

Would be nice to have this to avoid multiple caches to be written

How about we only write the paths relative to the project root in the cache files? This way they are completely portable..
