Subject: Re: [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,
