How EPrints generates web pages
EPrints generates a website. The pages in this website can be split into four areas:
Static pages include the home page, help, and about-this-archive pages. They are generated by the generate_static script, which takes the ".xpage" files in your archives "static" directory and applies the site template to them.
To see changes in these pages run generate_static.
These pages are all under the URL /view/
These pages are generated by the generate_views script.
These pages are all under the URL /perl/
These pages are generated on demand using mod_perl. The web server caches the configuration, however, so to make changes take effect you need to reload the web server or run:
EPRINTS_PATH/bin/epadmin reload --force ARCHIVE_NAME
These are the pages which describe a single eprint and are under one of the following types of URL: /archive/00000023/ or /23/
Where 23 is any number.
These are updated every time you modify the eprint they describe.
You can also update all of them, or one of them, by running generate_abstracts
