[EP-tech] Document upload folder permissions



It sounds like it SHOULD be but I?ve tried various combinations of various permissions, I?ve tried changing the user that is running Apache, I?ve tried changing the tmp directory location yet still not files will upload! If I try to add a file from URL I actually get an error on the page (but not in the error log) stating that Document Creation Failed, but I?m at an absolute loss. This is the only think stopping us from moving full steam ahead on fully migrating our repository (because of course you can?t have a repository if you can?t upload files!)

I think I?ll start a fresh tomorrow and roll a new repository, see if that makes any difference. At the moment my head is sore from bashing it against this brick wall!

Sounds like permissions issue:


1.- Check user:group in eprints directory
2.- Check /tmp
3.- User Apache and Eprints same groups:

uid=122(eprints) gid=130(eprints) groups=130(eprints),33(www-data)

uid=33(www-data) gid=33(www-data) groups=33(www-data),130(eprints)

4.- For me, eprints:www-data works fine, no problems.

Good Luck!

Hmm, I've taken a look and disabled AppArmor (fully, including performing a teardown on the running processes) but I'm still getting the same problem - the progress bar appears, vanishes seemingly at 100% completion, and I get no metadata fields to complete. It's odd.

Ubuntu uses apparmor [https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AppArmor] instead.

I'm not an expert, but hopefully the Ubuntu wiki is a useful starting point.
