Hi Ezequiel,

As I understand it, the hostname is the qualified name or a node name of your VPS.  It's probably easier for you to ask your hosting provider your VPS hostname as they usually set this one up for you.

You'll also need a DNS server which will resolve the domain and point it to your hostname or to the IP of your server through the use of nameservers.

Hope this helps and not add a confusion. My 2 cents worth....

Best regards,

Hello and thanks for providing this support forum.

I recently installed eprints under a VPS at Dreamhost.

I ran the installation via apg-get and everything went just fine

I then created the repository and everything.

Now, I got a problem when trying to access the site itself.

I?m not really familiar with the command line but I got to add lines and restart apache and everthing.

The problem is that I don't know how to interpret the "DNS alias" creation thing.


It says this:

"Hostname - What someone will type into a web browser to get to your archive. Make sure that your systems team have a DNS alias pointing to your server for this"

I really don't know how to do it. I mean I know how to create users and domains, but they work towards a folder under /home/sitename

In this case I need to pull the eprints from the usr/share/eprints3 but I cannot figure out a way to do it.

We are looking to hire someone to finalize the installation for us, since we are pretty stuck right now and we need to deploy the system before the end of the year.

Thanks in advance for your assistance,
