2.5 Scenario 4: adding new archives

Add a new container by providing extraction rules:

# apt-get install cowsay
$ mkdir cow1
$ cowsay mheu1 > cow1/cow1.txt
$ tar -zcf cow1.tgz cow1/
$ MD5_1=$(md5sum cow1/cow1.txt | cut -d' ' -f 1)
$ SIZE_1=$(ls -l cow1/cow1.txt | cut -d' ' -f 5)
$ MD5_2=$(md5sum cow1.tgz | cut -d' ' -f 1)
$ SIZE_2=$(ls -l cow1.tgz | cut -d' ' -f 5)

$ cat > <<EOF
Document "cow1": "animal"

$ cat > cow1.ext <<EOF
  $MD5_1:$SIZE_1 cow1/cow1.txt

$ mediatex upload file cow1.tgz catalog rules cow1.ext \
   to coll hello

Add a file with no metadata:

$ cowsay mheu2 > cow2.txt
$ mediatex upload file cow2.txt to coll hello

Such incoming files still are not safe until a PUBLISHER get the file form the cache, store them somewhere and provide them from some new supports to the collection.

$ mediatex motd

Supports may be provided either as external devices :

$ mediatex add supp ex-cow1 on cow1.tgz
$ mediatex add supp ex-cow1 to coll hello

or either as part of the filesystem :

$ mediatex add file cow2.txt
$ mediatex add supp $PWD/cow2.txt to coll hello

Now rebuild the html catalogue, and you should have access to the new archive as seen previously (Scenario 3).

$ mediatex make coll hello

Notice: If you accept www-data user as a PUBLISHER (see Who), the HTTP catalog provides an upload form (see HTTP) accessible from the “cache” section.
