How to use objavi??
  • Hi all,

    i have a new installed booktype instance (v.1.6.1), and if it comes to export/publish a book/ebook/screen PDF, i get the error "Unknown error while trying to publish this book."

    In my I'm using
    # URLS

    In the apache error log, there is the message : 
    [Thu Jun 12 15:06:22 2014] [error] [client] File does not exist: /srv/www/htdocs/export

    Should there be an directory named "export"??

    I have a second installation (v1.5.3) where I have the sam URL's, where it works..?

    How does this work?
    Do I have to install objavi locally??

    Thanks in advance,

    If you Booktype server is not publicly accessible from you will need to install it locally. If it is, you should configure THIS_BOOKI_SERVER to be your public hostname, like THIS_BOOKI_SERVER='' or THIS_BOOKI_SERVER='' if it is on another font.

    Looking at the error I would say this configuration option is set to be THIS_BOOKI_SERVER='' at the moment.

  • Hi Aleksandar,

    many thanks, it works!

    I adapted the "THIS_BOOKI_SERVER = '' and also commented out the "custom BOOKI_URL" and use the "BOOKI_URL = 'http://%s' % THIS_BOOKI_SERVER".

    Thanks a lot for your fast and great support ;-)


  • in my case this doesn't work.
    I have install objavi, I can import epub through objavi and espri
    but it is not possibly to export them through our local objavi.

    we have the following settings

    THIS_BOOKI_SERVER = 'XX.XX.XX.XXX' # is a public ip
    BOOKI_URL = 'http://%s' % THIS_BOOKI_SERVER

    OBJAVI_URL = "http://XX.XX.XX.XXX:8081/"
    ESPRI_URL = "http://XX.XX.XX.XXX:8081/espri"

    the ESPRI is working , ti OBJAVI is not working. Any thought ?
    Also I don't get something to logs
