[EP-tech] how to disable actions in eprints



Hi Jonathan,

The Apache redirect should be fine.  Make sure this works for both HTTP
and HTTPS, as I have been caught out by that before.  I would still
recommend setting the cgi/login:page_layout phrase to be empty just in
case.

Yuri's suggestion of making the database read-only might be OK but for
me there are too many things that I worry it might break, so I would
avoid this unless absolutely necessary.

Regards

David Newman
