[EP-tech] Document upload folder permissions

Hello all,


I’m taking advice on this from a couple of places so apologies for cross posting – I’m having a funny one with file uploads in my new EPrints instance. Documents just will not upload to records and I think it might be a permissions thing. I’ve checked with our ICT department and there are no firewall restrictions on the server. When I try to upload the document in the workflow, I get a progress bar briefly and then nothing – no metadata fields for the file, no confirmation that it’s even uploaded. I check the folder structure and there’s nothing there. The perms on the documents folder are chowned by eprints:eprints, chmodded to 2775 – both recursively. I’ve set apache to run as eprints:eprints, restarted apache, checked that the process is definitely running as eprints, even restarted the browser. Still nothing. I’m not sure where to go from here!
