Hi Noam,

The GLI outputs

"An error has accrued which will prevent the collection being previewed"

When it fails to replace the previous built collection on disk with the
new built collection on disk.

Perhaps you have some kind of permission problem?

Hi ,
I write you from the University of Oviedo(SPAIN)
After installing the GLI client for remote building collections, I said
Richard that al was ok.. Not true.

When I run the client-gli.bat file the program asks for the Greenstone
library and gliserver
URLs(http://:/gsdl/cgi-bin/library (library.exe
if the server is Windows) and
http://:/gsdl/cgi-bin/gliserver.pl, respectively. )

(The port is 80 in both cases.(Apache conf file is with 'listen 80')

From the admin page, I add a new user(with a password x and into the
adminstrator group and another into the colbuilder group).
In both cases, when I try to build a new collection after running the
client-gli.bat flie, it asks for the user and password. I write the user
and password and the next window error:

An error has ocurred on the remote Greenstone server while performing
this operation
Authentication failed: user is not in the required group

Any help????????
Tanks in advance.......

I am new to Greenstone. I installed Greenstone on a Debian Linux server. When I tried to run GLI, I was first asked to provide a path to the GSDL server, then, it just died. Here is messages from the console. Can someone help me?
