I didn't do anything in the install tool.  After I commented out
'rtehtmlarea' in localconf.php file, deleted all the temp_* files in
typo3conf/ directory.  Now all the sites are back up and the back end
works again now.  I installed the rtehtmlarea 1.4.4 as local ext. at first
in the EM.  Then moved the typo3conf/ext/rtehtmlarea to
typo3/sysext/rtehtmlarea.  It shows up as system extension of version

However when I created a web link, I got a popup window that has a very
long message:

Error in init.php: Path to TYPO3 main dir could not be resolved correctly.

This happens if the last 6 characters of this path,
/var/www/html/cms/typo3/sysext/rtehtmlarea/mod3/, (\$temp_path) is NOT
"typo3/" for some reason.
You may have a strange server configuration. Or maybe you didn't set
constant TYPO3_MOD_PATH in your module?
If you expect any help from anybody on this issue, you should save this
page as an html document and send it along with your request for help!

    [TYPO3_OS] =>
    [PATH_thisScript] =>
    [php_sapi_name()] => apache2handler
    [TYPO3_MOD_PATH] => ../typo3conf/ext/rtehtmlarea/mod3/

After that message, phpinfo shows up.

Anybody has any clues what that error is about?  How should I fix?
