Hi All,

still not having access to my collection, I decided to install another copy of greenstone in a separate folder and copy the collection over into the collect/ directory. I now have remote access using gli-client.bat , but none of the collections present in the collect directory appear in the list when I try to do a File/Open. I also cannot create a new collection: gli-client says "authentication failed: user is not in the required group".

Can anybody help me out here?

If you delete the users.db file, then access the Greenstone user management pages, a default users.db database should be created for you with an "admin/admin" user. You should then be able to add the users you need for the GLI client.

All the best,

Hi List,

after a year away I have returned to my collection at to find that the collection has been moved from the old windows/IIS server to a new redhat linux server. i previously built collections via remote desktop to the server, but because the new one does not have a GUI, I have set up the GLI client to manage the collection remotely via the librarian interface. unfortunately it no longer recognises my password, and removing the users.db file results in the server claiming the admin user does not exist.

how can i regain access to the collection? why does moving the users.db file not work in this case?

thank you very much for your help!
