[EP-tech] Re: generate_views - no list pages...



Hi Nick,
One quick thing to check (might have checked this already):
What user does Apache run as?
What user are the files owned by?

If at some point you've run something from the commandline as one user, and Apache is running as another user, it could make things a bit broken?

Cheers,
John

Subject: [EP-tech] Re: generate_views - no list pages...

I've about run out of ideas for figuring why the dynamic list pages are 
not being generate 'on the fly' when requested, and could do with some 
new ideas to investigate.

The apache error log only tells me:

script 
'/usr/share/eprints3/archives/repository/html/en/view/year/2014.html' 
not found or unable to stat, referer: http://research.i.ac.nz/view/year/

(and similar msgs for such as subject, creator, etc)

Putting a file there as 2014.html it is seen - it seems to be 'looking' 
in the right place, but the scripts just don't seem to be generating it 
when it is being asked for...

Is there a means of getting more logging, so I might be able to 
determine why the pages are not being generated?

I've just about reached the end of my own abilities to trouble shoot 
this one, and would sure like to learn what is causing the problem!

I did a fresh re-install from apt-get, applied the patches relating to
apache 2.4, generate_views, restart apache, but still have the lack of
such as 2005.html

Thinking it could be related to not producing the view to put onto the
dynamic page, I tested the various searching, and get results - I'm
assuming the view for the specific year might be a variation on this
search/view.

The list page shows - but just not generating the specific year pages.

As I've not modified anything (other than the apache 2.4 patches) I
can't see what I might be missing here.
