[EP-tech] FW: Issues uploading files

Any thoughts on this as well? I’ve tested it again and I’m not getting an error through file upload however if I try to add a file from URL I’m getting a “document creation failed” error. I’m not sure if it’s a permissions issue or a server issue (firewall etc)

Subject: Issues uploading files


Hello all,


Another problematic one – I can’t seem to upload files to my new repository. On doing an upload it briefly brings up the progress bar which then promptly vanishes. For info, I’m trying to upload a “test.pdf” file which is fairly small, only containing the word test, that I have in reserve for this kind of occasion. I’ve checked folder permissions and they’re all eprints:eprints, and as I’m not getting an error I’m not sure where the problem may lie. The only thing I can think of is that I notice the EPrint ID index has started at 1 after importing my EPrints (via a direct database import) so I’m not sure if there’s a way to start indexing after the most recent EPrint ID? The document problem seems to be some kind of permissions thing to me, though.
