We had to shut down the smtp service on koha because of mails coming from here: 10:21 CGI695 5 January 2010 09:00:08 Action: Message Accepted Client: 18.104.22.168 From: 10:21 CGI695 root@MOODLEKOHA.mydomain.com 10:21 CGI695 To: mainuser@MOODLEKOHA.mydomain.com Subject: Cron <root@MOODLEKOHA> /usr/share/koha/bin/migration_tools/rebuild_zebra.pl -b -a -z -v 2> /usr/share/koha/Rebuild.out Size: 1719 10:22 CGI695 Sorry about the multi-posts, not sure how that happened 10:34 slef CGI695: which smtp service software? 10:35 CGI695 The mail service on the Koha box. It sends out emails from the address above to a local server (relay) but the source and destination are the same and the SMTP server goes into a loop and eventually crashes 10:36 slef CGI695: yes, but what is the SMTP server software? I think you need to fix that mail loop problem, else regardless of what you do to Koha, you've a way for someone to denial-of-service attack your email server. 10:37 slef CGI695: on the cron site, adding MAILTOfirstname.lastname@example.org to the koha crontab will change where it is sending the report. 10:37 slef CGI695: cron side, even 10:38 slef put MAILTOemail@example.com (replacing firstname.lastname@example.org) on the line before the rebuild_zebra cron line 10:38 slef check "man 5 crontab" for details I think 10:38 CGI695 It's an exchange server. But the problem is that the ex server doesn't know where to send the mail to and tries to reply to the sender but it can't get back to the sender. I think, I need to modify the source addresses 10:38 slef what is the smtp server software on the Koha server? 10:39 slef If it is a debian server, /etc/email-addresses may let you set a different source address for root 10:39 slef but really having an exchange server doing SMTP is not good IMO. 10:40 CGI695 yeah, it debian alright. The problem seems to be a huge amount of emails are being generated from the Koha server though. The Exchange Server is the clients, I can't change that, I'm afraid, more is the pitty! 10:41 slef a huge amount of emails is either something breaking messily or something not quite tuned to succeed silently. 10:42 CGI695 OK. Any ideas where I might start to find out which? 10:42 slef I'd start by reading the emails, so modify the source address for root in /etc/email-addresses 10:43 CGI695 But I can't see the emails as the are not being delivered, they are looping 10:43 slef alternatively, run the cron jobs from the commandline, but there may be environment differences which will hide the reason 10:43 CGI695 Oh wait, I see what you mean now 10:43 slef well, get the emails delivered somehow 10:44 slef even if it means reconfiguring the debian server not to relay for a while 10:44 slef so that you could read the emails with the "mailx" command-line client 10:44 slef (man mailx first if you've never used it before!0 10:44 slef ) 10:44 CGI695 Thanks, I will see how that goes! 10:44 slef I've got to pop our for a moment - hopefully someone else can take it up if needed 10:44 slef no worries 10:45 * slef returns to software.coop writing 11:25 kf hi #koha 11:31 Amit hi kf 11:32 kf hi Amit 11:42 greenmang0 hello friends.. can anybody tell me how to enable RSS in koha? 11:42 greenmang0 i used rss.pl to generate an xml file 11:42 greenmang0 it works fine 11:42 greenmang0 but in opac when i click on RSS Orange icon 11:42 greenmang0 i get xml parsing error 11:42 greenmang0 what to do?? 11:46 kf I think the opac rss feature works without a cronjob or script 11:46 kf which version are u using? 11:47 greenmang0 kf: Koha version: 3.00.01.005 11:48 kf I just tested in our installation, it works there - we are on 3.01.00.061 11:48 greenmang0 kf: oh!! 11:48 greenmang0 ok 11:48 kf I dont know if there was a bug 11:49 kf perhaps you can try an update to 3.00.05 11:49 * greenmang0 is still in 2009 11:49 greenmang0 kf: sure 11:50 chipsy hi guys, i'm having this error while trying to catalogue 11:50 chipsy Can't call method "append_fields" on an undefined value at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/MARC/File/SAX.pm line 92. at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/i586-linux-thread-multi/XML/LibXML/SAX.pm line 80 at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/MARC/File/XML.pm line 445 11:53 kf chipsy: which version are u using? 11:54 CGI695 My koha-error log is riddled with the following: opac-search.pl: Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/share/koha/lib/C4/Biblio.pm line 1001.

One issue I'm having might be a configuration problem and I want to rule that out. 15:00 ccurry We're entering serial issues as subscriptions. In opac-detail.pl, Issue and Volume information from serial.serialseq displays correctly in the "Subscriptions" tab, but under the "Holdings" tab, the "Serial Data" field, which is also populated by serial.serialseq, is empty. The only difference between this two section of the tmpl are that the latter is wrapped in <!-- TMPL_IF NAME="serials"... 15:00 ccurry ...--> <!-- /TMPL_IF -->. 15:00 ccurry Anyone have an idea what could be causing this? 15:00 ccurry I tried removing the <!-- TMPL_IF><!-- /TMPL_IF --> with no change in display. 15:01 ccurry I know the condition is registering as true, anyway, because the columns are showing up and their presence is also conditional, depending on TMPL_IF NAME="serials" being true. 16:20 nengard_ so - seems like everyone is on vaca for the US holiday or at ALA midwinter ... very very quiet in here 16:43 paul_p hi nengard_ : frenchies still here ;-) 16:43 nengard_ :) hi paul_p 16:43 * toins too 16:44 toins hi paul_p and nengard_ 16:45 kf me too, preparing koha presentation for tomorrow 16:45 kf some hints for big public library systems with many branches? 16:45 nengard_ awesome 16:52 * chris_n is here too 16:52 chris_n hdl_laptop about? 16:53 chris_n paul_p: did hdl do the CAS work? 16:54 paul_p hi chris_n.
