I need to add stores (shapefiles) to geoserver running on localhost:8080. In data_dir/data I have directories containing shapefiles. I add them as workspaces with Namespace URI set to
When I try to add new store, the URL field in Connection Parameters doesn't open though and I can't choose which shapefile I want to add. I suppose the only error might be in
localhost:8080/geoserver/data/*name_of_the_dir*/. I tried many different variations of this path, none of them worked for me.
So the question is rather simple (hope the answer too): How do I add a store to a workspace when working in localhost? Thanks for any help.
PS: The geoserver I'm working on is meant to run offline, thus I can't enter web URLs in Namespace URI.
