icon1.gif   SSL does not work, posted by Hisataka YOSHIDA on Fri Jun 5 03:49:20 2020 
Hello.

I installed the latest elog (3.1.4-2) in CentOS 7, and it is working well without SSL.
When I enalbled SSL option (SSL = 1) in the "elogd.cfg", and tried to start the elogd, the message below was shown and failed to run.

When you compile elog from the soruces, you need the OpenSSL library to be installed. The CMake build process will then find it and include it in the
compile process. When you use the "make" build process, you have to make sure that SSL is enabled there:

USE_SSL = 1

Dear Stefan,

Thank you for your comment. I successfuly compiled the latest elog from source code, and now elogd could work with SSL.

In fact, I reported the case of installation with rpm file. Maybe, the latest elog rpm doesn't support SSL, I guess.

Today I succeeded with the help of L.JR to produce a new RPM which contains SSL, KRB5, PAM and LDAP support. It's uploaded to https://elog.psi.ch/elog/download/RPMS/elog-3.1.4-2.el7.x86_64.rpm

Hi All,

I would like to have "Permis de verouillage et d'étiquetage 016685-68AF-0031" when I select it.

I don't found where can I make this change

This has nothing to do with the ELOG package, but only with your local configuration of that specific logbook.
You should contact your local ELOG administrator.

Or you might want to rephrase you question: do you want to have this text added in the text field when selecting the field specifier?

Thanks, but I'm the Admin of local ELOG.

usually I can make a lot of changes on my files .CFG But this time no way.

Hi,

I'm trying to use the Sort Attributes option to sort all entries by a user specified date.  The issue I'm running into, is that
    icon2.gif   Re: Reverse sort by Attribue, but it's only showing the last 6 entries by default., posted by Andreas Luedeke on Sun Aug 9 20:47:05 2020 
It is described in the manual at https://elog.psi.ch/elog/config.html#general

Entries per page = <number>

Funnily the default is "20". I have no idea why you see 6 entries.

Thank you, Andreas!  Not sure why I kept overlooking it in the manual.  As for the number of entries when I sort, I'm not sure.  I'll
set it up to display a larger number and see what happens.

Dear all,

 

I had some difficulty to upload large files (>20MB) with SSL connection. I think it is also related to https://elog.psi.ch/elogs/Forum/68636

Your solution sounds quite good, I will incorporate them in the distribution.

icon5.gif   Record ID corruption, posted by Frank Baptista on Sun May 3 15:58:24 2020 
Hi all,

I've encountered an occasional problem that seems to be exacerbated by having a message with many replies.

In our use of ELOG, we run lengthy environmental tests (often several days) in multiple temperature chambers (one logbook for each chamber).

Hi,

I've had problems in the past due to a dodgy pointer creating branches despite a "No branches" in the configuration file. 
It would be very interesting to see what the 200428a.log file looks like with these entries: in the screenshot they appear to be shown in time order, but

Hi David,

Thanks for the quick response!  Well, I'd have to say that the sequence is as tangled as it looks in the logbook -- I've attached
a copy of the log file for your reading pleasure.

Hi Frank,

There are two interesting points about the log file. 

1.  Entry 5658 is timestamped later than 5659, but is earlier in the entry list.  It also is "In Reply to" 5659. despite

Hi David,

Well, you've made some very interesting observations, and raised some excellent questions.  So, I went back and did some homework, reviewing
a number of logbooks to find instances where this strange 'record twist' occurs.  You had asked, "Do you have enough information to decided

Hi Frank,

Good bit of detective work.  To me it suggests that something as yet undetermined occurs, that, when the 57th reply happens, causes the
issue.  If that "something" hasn't happened, all is well.  Apart from Heinz varieties (not true, in fact), 57 isn't an obvious
                   icon2.gif   Re: Record ID corruption, posted by Stefan Ritt on Tue Aug 4 13:38:05 2020 
I tried to reproduce the problem with a fresh minimal logbook (the demo one coming from the distribution). Made 60 replies and all went well. So I wonder
if it has to do with some special settings in elogd.cfg. Can you reproduce the problem with an empty logbook and an edlog.cfg which contains just the minimal
settings?
icon1.gif   "New User" option does not work when Authentication=Webserver, posted by Jan Just Keijser on Fri May 29 09:27:32 2020 
Our setup uses "Authentication=Webserver" + no automatic user registration. Thus, logbook admins should add a user by clicking "Config" 
and then "New user". However, no matter what they fill in in the "new user " dialog, as soon as they hit "Save" an error
pops up saying that their username (the admin one, not the new one) already exists. I found the following code:

Unfortunately I locallly don't have Webserver authentication, so I cannot check or debug. If you send me a diff that works for you, I'm happy
to incorporate it.

Is there a search feature in ELOG.  Basically, we have the topics broken up by categories but within the categories we would like to search

icon5.gif   Missing log files when rsync to replacement server., posted by VUIIS SysAdmin on Thu Jul 30 17:11:05 2020 
I am moving from a Hyper-V host to a VMware host and created a new elog server. I installed the elog software and did an rsync to get the .cfg file and
logbooks to the new server.

rsync -av root@old.elog.server:/usr/local/elog /usr/local/
    icon2.gif   Re: Missing log files when rsync to replacement server., posted by Stefan Ritt on Fri Jul 31 15:42:55 2020 
Start your new server interactively with "elogd -v 3" to see all verbose output. You will then see how it indexes all logbooks. If not, you
might have a wrong path in elogd.cfg

On the new server in the logbook that should have several 2020 entries it stops on the last entry of 2019.

On the old server after stopping elogd i get:

You can put your files where ever you want, just tell elogd where to find the elogd.cfg file via the "-c" flag. Then tell elogd where to find files
in the elogd.cfg file via the "Logbook dir" and "Resource dir" directives.

Thank-you. That is good information to have. 

What is the default if you you do not specify anything in elogd.cfg? I assume it is  /usr/local/elog otherwise it would not see the existing
logbooks.
                icon2.gif   Re: Missing log files when rsync to replacement server., posted by Stefan Ritt on Sun Aug 2 09:06:46 2020 
If nothing is specified elogd looks for logbooks in the current directory where it got started under ./logbooks/

No idea what happened to your 2020 logbook.
