[EP-tech] Re: ePrints installations

Hi Colin,
I’d start by trying:
>apachectl –S
This should print out the vhosts Apache is configured with – which should include the EPrints configured vhost.

If this lists the EPrints vhost, I’d then look in the main Apache error log for any problems when Apache is restarted.

If it doesn’t there’s something wrong with the EPrints vhost config.

Subject: [EP-tech] ePrints installations

Hi There,

I am installing ePrints on Ubuntu 14.04 and following the guide made available with the relevant patches (Step 1 only) at

It would appear I have followed the guide to a fine detail and the hosts file is modified in line with step 4. In theory I should now have a working installation of eprints in /usr/share/eprints3/

However when I visit the hostname we have set up it is showing the default apache 'It works' page i.e. /var/www/html/index.html

Can you please advise why this might be the case?
