[EP-tech] Black overlay covers half of the webpage

I think what you're seeing is part of the 'lightbox' functionality.
You can see the repeated
<div id="overlay"…>
<div id="lightbox"…>
<div id="overlay"…>
<div id="lightbox"…>
in the screenshot you sent.
For some reason, the lightbox is being set up twice, but only the first overlay (which is the black box) is being hidden.

Do you have any custom javascript in [EPRINTS_ROOT]/archives/[ARCHIVEID]/cfg/static/javascript/?

Subject: [EP-tech] Black overlay covers half of the webpage


I'm trying to migrate eprints from a server with ubuntu 10.04.4 and eprints 3.3.7 to a new server with ubuntu 16.04.03 and eprints 3.3.15. I did the migration as described here: https://wiki.eprints.org/w/Moving_a_repository, but i also ran this command "./bin/epadmin update myrepo" after "./bin/epadmin upgrade myrepo".

I set up a temporary domain to test the migration and when I visited the webpage, about half of the page was black. I realised that the eprints configuration file (cfg/cfg.d/10_core.pl<http://10_core.pl>) still had the original domain set, not the temporary one, so I changed it with "./bin/epadmin config_core<archivename>", generated the new webpages and the black overlay disappeared.

The server is behind a proxy, so I generated a certificate on the proxy and enabled HTTPS. Now the black overlay reappeared and I can't get rid of it. I attached a print screen to this email for more details.

Does anyone know what causes the black overlay to appear and how can i get rid of it?
