    Web OPAC icons not displaying:

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18

    Implementation completed all known steps:

    These steps are completed for the url http://.../F using port 80 for Web OPAC and the icons continue to be English not French as necessary:

    1. create directory in alephe/www_f_fre - copy files in to www_f_fre/icon
    2. create symbolic link in icon directory for htdocs /exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/apache/htdocs/www_f_fre/icon
    3. IF Web using port 80 – login as root and restart apache
    4. set z61_con_lng to FRE for the ALEPH Profile

    Create logical symbolic links to French - completed for the following directories:

    ln -s /exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/www_f_fre/icon icon


    lrwxrwxrwx 1 aleph exlibris 43 Dec 8 13:33 icon -> /exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/www_f_fre/icon/

    apache has been stopped and restarted - still icon images does not display and are not in French.

    [Note: though this Resolution is for the case of www_f_fre, the same can apply to any www_f_lng (including www_f_eng) where the icons are not displaying.]

    I see hundreds of the following error in the $alephe_root/apache/logs/error_log:
    [Wed Dec 10 16:48:10 2008] [error] [client] File does not exist: /exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/apache/htdocs/exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/www_f_fre, ...

    And, indeed, when I do:
    >>cd /exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/apache/htdocs/exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/www_f_fre

    I get:
    /exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/apache/htdocs/exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/www_f_fre: No such file or directory.

    But if I do:
    >>cd /exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/apache/htdocs/exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/www_f_eng

    it works.

    This www_f_eng directory I just cd-ed to has the following symbolic link:

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 aleph exlibris 43 Dec 8 12:53 icon -> /exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/www_f_eng/icon/

    Clearly, there needs to be a ./www_f_fre directory with a parallel symbolic link:
    icon -> /exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/www_f_fre/icon/

    I suggest you do this:
    >>cd exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe
    >>mkdir www_f_fre
    >>cd www_f_fre

    Then do this to create the symbolic link:
    >>ln -s /exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/www_f_fre/icon icon

    In any case, after you do it, ls -lrt in this directory should show:
    >>ls -lrt
    >>icon -> /exlibris/aleph/u18_1/alephe/www_f_fre/icon/

    Restart apache after making this addition.
