Subject [greenstone-users] Problems with Sub.Txt, the Collector, and Directory Confusion
First of all, I would like to offer my thanks for the prompt answer to my
mgpp-related problem -- I rebuilt the collection using mgpp again, and it's
working quite nicely now.

I have, however, another problem.

I'm trying to add a hierarchical list of subjects now.

I added the line:

classify Hierarchy -hfile sub.txt -metadata Subject -sort Title

to the collection's configuration file, and created a "sub.txt" hierarchy file
using the format:

"Sample Subject" 1 "Sample Subject"

to the same folder that I put the documents to be archived and the
"metadata.xml" file.

I discovered a .pdf document (at http://144.16.72.189/opendl/gsdl-co.pdf) that
said that "sub.txt" needs to go into the "etc" directory of the collection,
not the "import" directory.

I'm using the web-based Collector on a computer running Linux. The .pdf
document suggests "copy[ing] metadata.xml to the input collection folder and
sub.txt, org.txt (and collect.cfg) to the ‘etc’ directory in the
current ‘tmp mpbuild’ folder." I know what the "input" folder is. That's
specified in the second step of the web-based collection-building process
(right after the collection name, contact information, and so forth).

What I don't, however, understand is
(a) how to find the name of the "current 'tmp mpbuildetc' directory
(b) how to get "sub.txt" into that directory with the web-based Collector.

I understand that it may not be possible to do this without dealing with Linux
directly, and I'm willing to give it a try, but I'm not really very
Linux-knowledgable, so somewhat more detailed instructions would be very
helpful.

Thank you *very* much in advance.
