[EP-tech] Re: Issues installing IRStats

Hi Seb,

Access has 0 records.

I think the RegistryCooker error was to do with Apache not having been restarted. Now that I've restarted it, the cgi page is loading, but all the views either say 'None' or display empty graphs. I assume IRStats parses the Apache logs, and there should be accesses going back a few weeks for the repository, so is this incorrect?

Best wishes, Rob

P.S. Thank you to you and Tim for the answers to my other query!

Hi Rob,

Yes this is not surprising, as far as I know IRStats was built against
EPrints 2/3.0. There has been significant changes in the API since.

See my comments below:

Yes I've had similar issues lately, a force install makes everything ok.

Hmm I've never seen that warning, perhaps you have a more version of
PERL than I do.

Do you have any records in your access table? (easy way to check:
http://<your repo hostname>/cgi/counter, look for 'access')

Probably caused by the error described in (4) below:

Have you tried "cpan ModPerl::RegistryCooker" as root?
