For an overview of MePrints features, see MePrintsFeatures.

Installation (EPrints 3.1+)

Download the latest release to your local repository directory (eg. /opt/eprints3/archives/ARCHIVEID/).

Extract files:

tar xzvf meprints_xx.tgz

Install bin scripts

Edit the bin/generate_meprints file and check the include path on the first line. For example if you have installed EPrints in /var/lib/eprints3 change the line from:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w -I/opt/eprints3/perl_lib

to:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w -I/var/lib/eprints3/perl_lib

Install cgi scripts

Link the meprints cgi scripts into the EPrints cgi directory:

ln -s /opt/eprints3/archives/ARCHIVEID/cgi/meprints/ /opt/eprints3/cgi/
ln -s /opt/eprints3/archives/ARCHIVEID/cgi/users/meprints/ /opt/eprints3/cgi/users/

Update database

Add the new MePrints user fields (defined in cfg/cfg.d/z_meprints.pl) to your repository database:

cd /opt/eprints3/
bin/epadmin update_database_stucture ARCHIVEID --verbose

Getting Started

To active MePrints, you will need to make some small changes to your EPrints setup.

=bin/generate_meprints

Patches

EPrints::Apache::Rewrite

  • rewrite /profile/foo URLs
  • check profile is public (to be moved out - MR)

Quick Notes for meprints-1.0_rc1-2.tgz (from you to me)



2- bin/generate_meprints REPOSITORY_ID should work, test

3- to have the static profiles rendered properly:

=pod Marcus: Open up bin/generate_apacheconf and after;

my $https_cgiroot = $repository->get_conf( "https_cgiroot" );

   add;

my $profile_root = $repository->get_conf( "archiveroot" )."/user_profiles";

   Next after;

<Directory "$htdocs_path"> SetHandler perl-script PerlResponseHandler EPrints::Apache::Template::handler </Directory>

   add;

<Directory "$profile_root"> SetHandler perl-script PerlResponseHandler EPrints::Apache::Template::handler </Directory>

Run 'bin/generate_apacheconf' and then restart your web server to reflect the changes to the server configuration.

Test: If you now go to http://repositoryurl.com/cgi/meprints/profile?userid=1 you should see the profile id 1.


8. extras: 0- default user citation: replace default_with_thumbnail.xml with default.xml 1- for custom 404 errors when hitting a non-existing profile:

=pod marcus: For custom user not found errors update the code code in cgi/handle_404 so that it resembles the following;

if( defined $newurl ) {

       $session->redirect( $newurl );

} elsif( $url =~ m#^$urlpath/profile/(.*)/?# ) {

       &nouser_404( $session, $1 );

} elsif( $url =~ m#^$urlpath/view/# ) {

       &noview_404( $session );

} else {

       &plain_404( $session );

}

Now add a new subroutine to cgi/handle_404 called nouser_404;

sub nouser_404 {

       my( $session, $username ) = @_;
       $session->build_page(
               $session->html_phrase( "cgi/handle_http_error:404_user_title" ),
               $session->html_phrase( "cgi/handle_http_error:404_user_blurb",
                       username => $session->make_text( $username ) ),
               "nouser_404" );
       $session->send_page();

} =cut

2. To enable the pretty urls:

=pod marcus: Now the final step is to update perl_lib/EPrints/Apache/Rewrite.pm so that we can have pretty URLs for user profiles of the form http://repositoryurl.com/profile/USERNAME. Look for the following block;

$r->filename( $repository->get_conf( "htdocs_path" )."/".$lang.$localpath );

if( $uri =~ m#^/view(.*)# ) { my $session = new EPrints::Session(2); # don't open the CGI info EPrints::Update::Views::update_view_file( $session, $lang, $localpath, $uri ); $session->terminate; } else { EPrints::Update::Static::update_static_file( $repository, $lang, $localpath ); }

Replace it with;

# $r->filename( $repository->get_conf( "htdocs_path" )."/".$lang.$localpath );

       if ( $uri =~ m! ^/profile\/([0-9a-z]+)(.*)$ !x )
       {

my $session = new EPrints::Session(2); # don't open the CGI info

               my $ds = $session->get_repository->get_dataset( 'hidden_profile_users' );
               my $searchexp = EPrints::Search->new(
                       satisfy_all => 1,
                       session => $session,
                       dataset => $ds
               );
               $searchexp->add_field( $ds->get_field( 'username' ), $1 );
               my $result = $searchexp->perform_search;
               if ( $result->count > 0 )
               {
                       return FORBIDDEN;
               }
               $searchexp->clear;
               $ds = $session->get_repository->get_dataset( 'registered_profile_users' );
               $searchexp->set_dataset( $ds );
               $searchexp->add_field( $ds->get_field( 'username' ), $1 );
               $result = $searchexp->perform_search;
               if ( $result->count > 0 and not defined $session->current_user )
               {
                       return FORBIDDEN;
               }
               my $user = EPrints::User::user_with_username( $session, $1 );
               if ( defined $user )
               {
                       $r->filename( $repository->get_conf( 'archiveroot' )."/user_profiles/".$user->get_id."/profile/index.html" );
               }
       } else {
               $r->filename( $repository->get_conf( 'htdocs_path' ).'/'.$lang.$localpath );
       }

if( $uri =~ m#^/view(.*)# ) { my $session = new EPrints::Session(2); # don't open the CGI info EPrints::Update::Views::update_view_file( $session, $lang, $localpath, $uri ); $session->terminate; } else { EPrints::Update::Static::update_static_file( $repository, $lang, $localpath ); } =cut

9. Restart web server, generate views etc.
