[EP-tech] Re: Importing files from another system



We have a winner!
This was the base cause.

Extra gold stars to Jose for missing metadata, and props to Seb (as always, he's good!).
Another email coming in a second - and then possibly a Friday edit of the Wiki...

Hi John, 

  Might your XML be missing the "documents" level of nesting? 

e.g.:
<eprints>
	<eprint>
		<documents>
			<document>
				<files>
					<file>
						<datasetid>document</datasetid>
						<filename>...</filename>
						<mime_type>...</mime_type>
						<url>...</url>
					</file>
				</files>
			</document>
		</documents>
	</eprint>
</eprints>

Cheers,
Casey

Yep - that didn't work either :o\

According to this:
http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Import_From_URL
I was also missing a <files> around the <file>.
I've added that and re-tried all the options, so far none work :o\

Any other suggestions?

Cheers,
John

Have you tried for local files

	<url>file:///path_to_file</url>

?

Nothing silly in the verbose output.

I can wget the file over http (when trying the http method), but even using the file from the local filesystem doesn't work :o\

run the command with --verbose --verbose and try to see what happen. Can you go to port 80 from the server to another server? Check your firewall settings.
