Normal Methods

EPrints::Config::init()

Load the EPrints configuration.

  cgi_path /cgi
  cfg_path /cfg
  lib_path /lib
  arc_path /archives
  bin_path /bin
  var_path /var
EPrints::Config::load_system_config()

Load the system configuration files.

Configuration files are loaded in order from (later files with the same name will be ignored):

  /cfg/cfg.d
  /lib/syscfg.d
$conf = EPrints::Config::system_config()

Returns the system configuration variable. To access a specific configuration option use get.

$repository = EPrints::Config::get_repository_config( $id )

Returns a hash of the basic configuration for the repository with the given id. This hash will include the properties from SystemSettings.

@ids = EPrints::Config::get_repository_ids()

Return a list of ids of all repositories belonging to this instance of the eprints software.

$arc_conf = EPrints::Config::load_repository_config_module( $id )

Load the full configuration for the specified repository.

Returns a reference to a hash containing the full repository configuration.

Configuration files are loaded in order from (later files with the same name will be ignored):

  archives/[archiveid]/cfg/cfg.d
  site_lib/cfg.d
  lib/cfg.d

Defines the following configuration properties:

  archiveroot    archives/[archiveid]
  documents_path archives/[archiveid]/documents
  config_path    archives/[archiveid]/cfg
  htdocs_path    archives/[archiveid]/html
  cgi_path       archives/[archiveid]/cgi
$value = EPrints::Config::get( $confitem )

Return the value of a given eprints configuration item. These values are obtained from SystemSettings plus a few extras for paths.

$ok = EPrints::Config::write_config( $dest, $names, $values )

Write name-value pairs to a configuration file $dest (overwriting any existing data). This uses EPrints::Dumper to serialise the passed Perl structures.
