Hi again,

This is the Error message i get after I deleted the Index Directory and "Completely Build" the Files:

u
Command: C:\Program Files\Greenstone\bin\windows\perl\bin\Perl.exe -S C:\Program Files\Greenstone\bin\script\import.pl -gli -language en -collectdir C:\Program Files\Greenstone\collect trial
import.pl> ERROR: Couldn't open fail log C:\Program Files\Greenstone\collect\trial\etc\fail.log
import.pl> Died at C:\Program Files\Greenstone\bin\script\import.pl line 283.
import.pl> Command failed.

Appreciate any help...

Thx and Regards,
Shaheen

Hi

If you get the index can not be deleted message, its due to GLI not
being able to delete the index directory, because something has locked
the files. If you think its not locked, then you can manually delete the
index directory (greenstone\collect\collname\index), and rebuild.

When trying the incremental version, try changing modes to expert and
rebuilding - does the output tell you what's gone wrong?

Regards,
Katherine
