No, it's expecting to find a directory, as documented in
htdocs.docs/config.html.  Read and follow the instructions in
htdocs/docs/config.html *before* running fs-setup.  This is why
htdocs/docs/install.html has "Create the necessary configuration files" 
*before* "run bin/fs-setup".  You are expected to follow the instructions
in order.  Please attempt to do so before sending your help request to the
hundres of people on this mailing list.

Don't do that.

The double slash is not a problem; it's equivalent to a single slash.

You created the file (in error).  Why are you asking us why it's a file
instead of a directory?
