Hi, long time lurker, first time poster (actually, this is not the first time I've posted) --
I'm trying to add the archive with base URL http://idl-bnc.idrc.ca/dspace-oai/request
to a Harvester (version 188.8.131.52). On form submit, I get:
"The specified OAI URL is not valid. Please check the URL and try again."
When I click on "Fetch archive metadata" the form refreshes but produces no error, and AFAIKT does not actually get the archive info, since the contact email is not inserted.
I've used the very fine Google Custom Search on the forms to look for the 'is not valid' message, and relevant threads told me to verify that allow_url_fopen = On both locally and globally, which it is.
Actually, I successfully added a DSpace 1.5 archive yesterday (base URL http://ecommons.usask.ca/dspace-oai/request
). It is using http, not https, FWIW.
Running PHP 5.1.6, not sure if SSL is enabled but phpinfo tells me that I have "libcurl/7.15.5 OpenSSL/0.9.8b zlib/1.2.3 libidn/0.6.5".
