[EP-tech] apache fails to start eprints

Hi Herbert,
This sounds strange.

>From here: https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/3.3/perl_lib/EPrints/MetaField.pm#L252
$p_default = $repository->config( "field_defaults" )->{ $p_id };

The config field_defaults is normally in ~/archives/ARCHIVEID/cfg/cfg.d/field_property_defaults.pl
Does this file exist - and is it OK (the default version is in ~/lib/defaultcfg/cfg.d/ )?

What happens if you run:
~/bin/epadmin test

I have been running eprints 3.3.15 on Open SuSE till this morning when I
suddenly hit on the following error:

[error] Can't use an undefined value as a
HASH reference at /opt/eprints3/perl_lib/EPrints/MetaField.pm line
252. Compilation failed in require at (eval 2) line 1.\n [Tue Sep 06

[error] Can't load Perl file: /opt/eprints3/bin/startup.pl for server
xxx:8080, exiting...

Neither the system, nor the eprints package was changed. Can you please
