shower stall leak

I recently bought a renovated old house. The bathroomes were rebuilt and have a modern glassed in shower stall that is tiled on the floor.
The tile is raised about 6" at the door so the shower water stays inside.
The problem is on the outside of the stall at the part where the room floor meets the shower stall. Everyday water appears after the shaower is used and will continue to "weep" all day.
It appears to be coming up from the floor or possibly over the 6" high riled wall from the inside of the wall. There is no visible leakage from the inside of the shower stall to the outside.
Anybody got an idea of where its coming form?

Welcome to the forums! Best case scenario is micro leaking around the seal where the glass meets the tile, either from the bottom or along the sides. Worst case is the shower liner was improperly installed or torn during installation. It could also be where the liner is attached to the drain. These last two scenarios aren't pretty, so check the glass first. Can you detect any leaking from the floor below? Can you access the area directly under the shower?
