[EP-tech] Re: Altmetrics

Okay, I?ve done some further digging on this and I?ve come up with a
reason, if not a solution. Back in April our ICT department did an
unplanned update on our EPrints box which updated the system to the most
recent version of the software and broke several customisations that we
have in place. I had to rebuild these changes on the live server but also
bring my virtual machine in line with the changes on there - one of the
things I noticed was that the lib folder on my virtual machine was not the
same as the one on the live machine so I transferred this down.

Now, I had the foresight to snapshot my virtual machine before I made
these changes and, having restored the snapshot, this version has a
working Bazaar. SO, whatever I had to do to get the system in line with
live brought the error down from the live server with it. I have no idea
if it was the software update (which was not done via the prescribed
EPrints update but through a package update in Ubuntu, something I had to
do to make sure my environment was the same) or bringing the lib folder
down from the live machine.

Hopefully this helps?
