More coming below. The error message says "GSDLHOME not set". But
I've changed server configuration file with"

Alias /gsdl "/opt/greenstone"
<Directory "/opt/greenstone">
Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

Any thoughts on this? Thank you very much!

Hongyan

First set....
