[EP-tech] solved: login-only repository on Debian10

Hi Thomas,

I have not yet set a change freeze date.  In theory I intended to get 
EPrints 3.4.3 released before the end of the year but I have not been 
able to recruit any alpha testers from my colleagues, as they are too 
busy at the moment.  So the release will be sometime Q1 2021 (so by the 
end of March but hopefully somewhat sooner).  I cannot imagine the 
change freeze will be until at least mid-January if not later. What sort 
of changes do you intend to make to system.xml?

I have to admit I have given up trying to read what you wrote towards 
the end of your email as it is too mangled by the mailing list 
mailserver. (I am on the same mailserver so you can probably imagine how 
frustrating I find this when having technical discussions about web 
based systems).  Is there any chance you could send just me what you 
wrote after "in spite of" in an attached text file.  I can see you seem 
to have had to add some hacks to various Apache config files.  If you 
could also send me the contents of you /usr/share/eprints/cfg/ and any 
other Apache config files (e.g. those in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/).  
Then I might be able to better understand if there is something you have 
done that has led to the problems you are experiencing.   One other 
possible issue is that the old Apache config files for your original 
repository hostname are still present and being loaded from 
/usr/share/eprints/cfg/ as well as the new one for sub.domain.de.  
Another issue could be that you have the 000-default.conf and 
eprints.conf in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled and then are conflicting with 
each other.  Have you tried disabling the former (i.e. a2dissite 
000-default && systemctl restart apache2)?

Regards

David Newman
