Problem : Unknown indexing method

Postby sklima » Thu Feb 08, 2007 5:49 am


I installed the last version of PKP Open Archives Harvester (2.0.1). The installation was succesful.

I add an archive and save it, the navigator downloads an empty file named by "updateArchive...". There are no erros, but is it normal?

Then, when i tried to update Metadata index from archive, i obtained the error (Fatal error : Allowed memory size ... Unknown indexing method). So i increase the PHP memory limit. I set this properties to 64M. I tried again the update of index, and i obtain always "Unknown indexing method" without this time the fatal error, but there are still not records in archive.

Has someone an idea on my problem?

Thanks in advance.

Hi sklima,

It looks like the indexing method setting for the OAI repository (i.e. listrecords vs. listidentifiers) is not set. In the admin interface, edit and save the archive; this should correct the problem. It may have been caused by the out-of-memory error you mentioned earlier.
