This isn't a support request, as much as a suggestion for documentation for PKP Open Harvester. There's nothing in the otherwise detailed documentation on the rights that the installation script requires to the mySQL database, which is a pain when, as in my case, someone else is the mySQL admin and s/he naturally wants to nail down rights to just what's necessary. By trying to run install on my user account on our University's Unix system, I've found that it requires 'create' rights, and once I got my admin to set those up I then found it needs 'alter' rights, so I'll have to get on to him about that and then run it again to see if any other rights are required. Can anyone tell me what rights are needed so that I don't have to keep bothering him?
Of course, when I installed it on my Macbook with all root privileges it installed fine, and runs like a dream, but most users won't have root access so it would be worth catering for them.
Otherwise, it's an excellent piece of software, and really has saved me having to write a harvester from scratch which would have taken weeks.
PS: What rights will Harvester need during normal operation, after it's installed? I'm assuming that insert, update, delete, and select will be enough.
