[EP-tech] Re: EPrints 3.3.12 Installation (from source)


This mail just to keep you informed...

I started over from a clean snapshot of our system.
I reinstalled EPrints 3.3.12 from the source and a few required softwares from "yum" utility.
Then I ran epadmin and got one of the errors I had the first time :
Can't load '/usr/local/lib64/perl5/auto/APR/APR.so' for module APR: libexpat.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory at /usr/lib64/perl5/DynaLoader.pm line 200.
 at /usr/local/lib64/perl5/APR/Table.pm line 23
As expat was installed (as said by "yum install expat"), the first time, I tried reinstalling Perl (and mod_perl). And things went worse... :-(
This time, I asked around me and somebody suggested the following command:
yum install compat-expat1
I did it and it worked.
EPrints is now installed and working.

Thanks again for your help

We are fresh newcomers to the EPrints community (Cirad is a French research centre working in the field of tropical agronomy, breeding, ...).

The library team has made the choice of EPrints to manage the documents produced by our research teams.

So, I am trying to install EPrints 3.3.12 on the dedicated server (the server is still in intranet zone, for now, so I can't post useful links) :
  • CentOS release 6.5 (Final) LSB_VERSION=base-4.0-amd64:base-4.0-noarch:core-4.0-amd64:core-4.0-noarc
  • MySql 5.6.15
  • Perl 5.18.2
  • Apache 2.2.26 with mod_perl 2.0.8
Installation of EPrints seems OK :
  • "epadmin create", to create the test repository + modification of httpd.conf
  • import of testdata
  • generate_views
  • "indexer start"

But, I still get errors when running unit_tests...

  • one error on 30_search.pl
  • fails (exists) on 84_sword.pl "1/27 Bailout called.  Further testing stopped:  Failed to parse http://-----.cirad.fr/sword-app/servicedocument :1: parser error : Space required after the Public Identifier"
And on the web interface I run through several problems :
  1. When I try to login with the admin account created during "epadmin create", I get a page "Moved" instead of the "Manage deposits" page. I have found that another user reported the same problem (http://www.eprints.org/tech.php/18174.html) but I didn't find any answer to his mail.

    If I go back one page, I return to the home page and I can see that the connection has been done. I am identified under the admin account...

  2. If I try to edit the user profile through the "Profile" link, I get an error : "user does not exist. It may have been erased."

    The url of this page is http://-----.cirad.fr/cgi/users/home?screen=Workflow%3A%3AView&dataset=user&dataobj=

    If I tweak this URL, adding "1" at the end, I obtain the profile page...

  3. On this profile page, if I click on "Edit", this produce a "500 Internal Server Error"

    The Apache log has a line related to this error : "Can't call method "action_buttons" on an undefined value at /opt/www/eprints-3.3.12/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Screen/Workflow/Edit.pm line 206."

    Note: if I don't click "Edit" but rather one of the links on field titles (as Name or User Type), I get to the edit page (http://-----.cirad.fr/cgi/users/home?screen=Workflow%3A%3AEdit&dataset=user&dataobj=1&userid=1&stage=default#name) without a problem.

  4. I get the same kind of problems when trying to edit documents. From the "Manage deposits" page, I can view documents but not edit them : same "500 Internet Server Error" but with a different line in the error_log " Can't call method "render" on an undefined value at /opt/www/eprints-3.3.12/perl_lib/EPrints/Workflow.pm line 446.". As for the user editing, if I click on a title link from the view page of a document, I correctly reach the edit page.

  5. Last problem. When I try to search the repository (http://-----.cirad.fr/cgi/search//simple or advanced), I get a redirection error from firefox : "The page isn't redirecting properly - Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete"

Has anybody any clue or advices of things I should look at...

With all my apologies for this long message...
Thank you for your assistance.
