    Copying an updated www_f_eng directory from Test to Prod

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    We're having difficulty migrating a new www_f_eng directory from our test region on our existing server to the production version on the same server. The cp -r command produces a directory of a different size from the original. And the screens which display lack the proper background.

    The difference in the size of the ./www_f_eng directory was not the problem....

    Checking in the ./alephe/apache/htdocs, we found that while this directory on the Test instance had soft links pointing to the ./www_f_eng/cas.css and cas.js files, the same directory on the Prod instance lacked these links.

    We added them, using these commands:

    > ln -s /exlibris/aleph/u20_1/alephe/www_f_eng/abc.css abc.css
    > ln -s /exlibris/aleph/u20_1/alephe/www_f_eng/abc.js abc.js

    Then we restarted the www_server and the expected screens displayed.

    I find that the following grep in the Prod www_f_eng locates numerous references to the *Test* /u20_2/alephe/www_f_eng/:

    > grep 20_2 *

    These are "background" lines in the ./www_f_eng/abc.css.

    As a matter of principle, I believe that all of these should be changed from the Test ("u20_2") to the Prod ("20_1").
