[EP-tech] Re: Permissions for eprints bazaar

Ah thanks - I had apache and eprints in each other's groups, but hadn't given write permission to the group.

Seems to work now!

Thank you very much!

Scratch my previous reply then (you can access the Bazaar OK).
Sounds like permissions on /usr/share/eprints/lib/epm/
On our systems it's owned by eprints/eprints (and our Apache runs as EPrints).

The exact message is this:

Error operating on
/usr/share/eprints/lib/epm/recollect/cfg/autocomplete/: Permission denied

I get the same kind of error (but obviously different filename) with
other plugins.

I'm new to Eprints, and I think I've installed it all right, or at least
I did until I tried to install a plugin through the admin screen and I
get a message that permission is denied.  I'm logged in as the admin

Access to EPrints Bazaar is read-only for installing plugins, so that's
not going to be the actual problem.

I suspect its more likely to be a file-system permissions thing.... can
you give us the full message?
