      Description

      When using directory environments, if manifestdir doesn't exist, PE attempts to create it, but fails.

      This is logged in syslog, but it can be hard to find and the cause of the Could not set 'directory' on ensure: Permission denied - /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/manifests messages.

      There is also no mention of this in the 500 internal server message, you just get a "web application failed to start" message, which is not very informative.
