[EP-tech] how to disable actions in eprints


Thank you for the information. My original idea was to disable the 
(conventional) login somehow but was not sure how to handle existing 
login sessions. Here's what I think I will do:

apache redirect the login route two a page giving information as to why 
this is disabled
truncate the loginticket table
switch off the indexer and cronjobs

Thanks again for your help,
