Problem adding some PDFs

Postby ClaireHill » Sun Mar 05, 2006 8:37 pm

I have set up a journal using and have managed to load most of the PDF articles. For some reason I can't load some of the PDF files. When I use Firefox, the error message I receive says that the "file has no data" even though I can view the PDF file and see the article. Has anyone experienced a similar problem? If so, have you found a solution?
Thanks in advance

Hi Claire,

There are a few things you should check:
  • Is your server recording any error messages? Check your log to see if PHP reported any errors.
  • Is everything in the files directory (configured in writable by the web server user?
In particular, if you used the command-line import tool to bring in some articles, your file permissions may need some attention.
