Re: [EP-tech] Document upload folder permissions

are you using a red hat variant and is SELinux enabled? Is so try disabling SELinux.

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!
