Cant add repositories to system

Postby mica78 » Tue Jul 18, 2006 6:05 am

I just installed Harvester 2. The installation was far from easy, since only the third time it really passed on ok. It didnt give me any error messages though, so I dont know what was the problem.

Now the system is up and running, but I cant add any repositories to it.
When I enter the OAI URL and press save I get browser error saying "error loading web page" and the systems halts.

Any help with this one?

Hi mica78,

Could you provide some details on the problems you encountered during installation and your server platform? I suspect that the problem (perhaps affecting both installation and and adding archvives) is a timeout. Try increasing your max_execution_time and max_input_time parameters in php.ini and restarting Apache. If this doesn't work, feel free to contact me with some details on the OAI repository you're having trouble with; I'll do some further testing to determine what the problem is.

I had similar problem and found the solution in the docs/FAQ.

The short version of the solution is that you have to add "AcceptPathInfo On" to the httpd.conf file. Then restart Apache web server for the change to take effect.

There are more details in the docs/FAQ.

I hope that helps,
