Hi Ravi,

It is constructing the filepath by repeating the path twice. I can't be
too sure, but from memory, this looks like a problem that was resolved
in Greenstone2.83.

Could you please try out installing Greenstone2.83 on *both* client and
server side? I suspect that this may actually fix your problem.

Regards,
Anupama
