Hi Andrew,

> export <MYARCHIVE> archive XML > filename.xml
this console command is correct, as long as you use ~/<Eprints-Home>/bin/export ...
Please check your $PATH.

> import <MYARCHIVE> --verbose --enable-import-fields --update --force archive XML filename.xml
also correct ... for eprints' import!
> Running this as the eprints user in this environment throws this error:
What do you get for `import <MYARCHIVE> archive`?
It should be a listing of all available plugins.

> Import.im6: unable to open X server ':0'  AT error/import.c/ImportImageCommand/368.
There's no need for a DISPLAY setting, because this command is running on console ...
