What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

pdftotext in config.inc.php

Postby spliff » Fri Jun 15, 2007 3:29 pm

Dear OJS community

I am running an OJS test installation for a Swiss journal of History.
First I have to thank the whole OJS team for the fantastic job they did! You created just a marvelous piece of software. I am very much excited about it!

I have a question regarding the full text search of PDF files. I understand (http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1119) that the first thing to try would be to un-comment the line
Code: Select all
; index[application/pdf] = "/usr/bin/pdftotext %s -"

in config.inc.php, if my server has installed this tool. Then I could run "php tools/rebuildSearchIndex.php" to build a text index. Now fortunately I found this tool at /usr/local/bin/pdftotext.
The problem I am facing is that I cannot find the above-mentioned line in "config.inc.php" (in classes/config). The content I see is:

Code: Select all
<?php

/**
 * Config.inc.php
 *
 * Copyright (c) 2003-2006 John Willinsky
 * Distributed under the GNU GPL v2. For full terms see the file docs/COPYING.
 *
 * @package config
 *
 * Config class for accessing configuration parameters.
 *
 * $Id: Config.inc.php,v 1.5 2006/06/12 23:25:50 alec Exp $
 */

/** The path to the configuration file */
define('CONFIG_FILE', Core::getBaseDir() . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'config.inc.php');

import('config.ConfigParser');

class Config {

   /**
    * Retrieve a specified configuration variable.
    * @param $section string
    * @param $key string
    * @return string
    */
   function getVar($section, $key) {
      $configData = &Config::getData();
      return isset($configData[$section][$key]) ? $configData[$section][$key] : null;
   }
   
   /**
    * Get the current configuration data.
    * @return array the configuration data
    */
   function &getData() {
      static $configData;
      
      if (!isset($configData)) {
         // Load configuration data only once per request
         $configData = Config::reloadData();
      }
      
      return $configData;
   }
   
   /**
    * Load configuration data from a file.
    * The file is assumed to be formatted in php.ini style.
    * @return array the configuration data
    */
   function &reloadData() {
      if (($configData = &ConfigParser::readConfig(CONFIG_FILE)) === false) {
         fatalError(sprintf('Cannot read configuration file %s', CONFIG_FILE));
      }
      
      return $configData;
   }
   
   /**
    * Return the path to the configuration file.
    * @return string
    */
   function getConfigFileName() {
      return CONFIG_FILE;
   }
   
}
?>


What am I doing wrong? I am not familiar with php and maybe I am just too stupid to handle OJS... :oops:

Many thanks for your advice in advance!

Hi spliff,

You're looking in the wrong file; the config.inc.php configuration file should appear in the OJS installation's root directory. The file you're looking at is the code that reads the configuration file, not the configuration file itself.

Dear asmecher

You're looking in the wrong file


I kind of suspected that... :roll:

Many thanks for your help!
