Hi, Renate
I think it is not very difficult.

The procedure is like this:

  1. Install Greenstone software on your Webserver
  2. Set up GSDL to run with your Webserver
  3. Copy your colection from CDROM to the GSDL collection directory


Normally, the collection directoy on CDROM is:  D:gsdlcollectyour-collection

The GSDL collection on server is: C:Program filesgreestonecollectyour-collection

(It is assumed that C: is hard disk driver where you installed your GSDL, D: is CDROM drive, your-collection is directoy of your collection).


I hope that will be of help.

Good day,

Is it possible to copy a Greenstone collection on CD-ROM to a live Web server - to make it easier for all user to access the collection instead fo working from the CD-OM?
