This is a stumper. I'm managing the Harvester instance at http://www.rlo-cetl.ac.uk/harvester2/
which is hosted on a Windoze server. Until yesterday if you did a search (eg "Java") you got a list of titles with "VIEW RECORD" and "VIEW ORIGINAL" links, the latter of which was the public URL of the resource in the harvested repository. Then I made two admin changes:
1. Removed all bar the rlocetl archive (I'd harvested two other sources just as a demo)
2. Updated the rlocetl index.
Suddenly searches only showed "VIEW RECORD", with the link to the resource no longer appearing. Similarly, in the full record where there used to be a link in Identifier to the public URL (eg http://www.rlo-cetl.ac.uk:8080/test/IntraLibrary?command=open-preview&learning_object_key=i08n13448t
), this had also disappeared. I'd thought this was a problem with the repository software (Intrallect's Intralibrary), but today I've used a Harvester instance on a Macbook at home running OS/X and updated the same metadata index, and the search results include "VIEW ORIGINAL". I've not yet carried out (1) on the local instance as I don't want to delete archives unnecessarily. Is there any reason why "VIEW ORIGINAL" should disappear like this? There've been no tweaks to the repository software config as far as I'm aware, and the fact that it works fine on my home machine indicates the problem lying with Harvester. I've compared the two Harvester configs and they appear to be identical. I've not yet tried to compare the full mySQL and/or PHP configs.
On a related topic, whilst I have your attention
, in a full record display what is the Identifier element supposed to link to? For instance, in the rlocetl repository search the identifier LTRI003 ("While loops") is a link which points to http://www.rlo-cetl.ac.uk/harvester2/in ... ew/LTRI003
but clicking on that link just returns the user to the harvester instance home. This happens with other repository harvests as well so it's not just an issue with the rlo-cetl repository. For instance, on my home machine the identifier linking to http://127.0.0.1/harvester-2.0.1/index. ... map-rm2008
also, when clicked, goes to the Harvester home.
Many thanks in advance, again, for any tips/suggestions/help. We've nearly got the thing up and running...
