Hi George,

1. Could you please try building your collection from the command-line -- if this fails, then it is a problem with Greenstone, otherwise it is a problem with the GLI (more likely). Command-line collection building is described in chapter 1 of the Greenstone Developer's Guide.

2. The demo collection uses a Hierarchy classifier for the Organisations classifier, but you should be able to use an AZCompactList (with mingroup = 1) to get the same effect.

3. You just need to upload the collection folder into the "collect" folder on the web server (provided the two computers have the same endianness), and refresh the library home page in your web browser.

All the best,


Hallo,I have some questions with GSDL 2.50 's Librarian Interface 1. when building a collection with MS word documents  approximately 250 , 300 pages in each one , building process "hangs" on 43, or less percents, for several hours,,, sometimes, even import process is not completed. only one way out is a restarting computer :( 2. i want authors list to be expandable, (as in the organisations list in Greenstone Demo collection)may be some tags must be added in format options ..and the last question:3. i have only ftp access on the server where GSDl is installed (WEB server) And i Want to upload collections which are stored and built locally in my D libray, how to make them viewable on the server ? thanks in advance ,    george varamishvili P.s. I'm using windows Xp + Sp1  operating system on AMD Athlon XP 200+ / 256 MB ram  Computer. Computer/OS is OK
