[EP-tech] how to disable actions in eprints

Hi Jonathan,

There are several things I would do:

1. Disable the indexer from the admin menu.

1. Modify the phrase cgi/login:page_layout (by default in
/opt/eprints3/lib/lan/en/phrases/system.xml, you can override at an
archive level) to remove the login form.

2. Truncate (i.e. delete all records from) the loginticket table to
remove any current logged in sessions.

4. Edit the EPrints user's crontab to make sure you disable any scripts
that could modify publications data/metadata.

This advice assumes you are using conventional login (not
Shibboleth/ADFS or similar).  Also the access table in the database
will still get records added to it.  However, it sounds like this would
not be an issue, as it would not effect the data/metadata of the
publication records.
