This set of scripts allow people to remotely create publications from web pages. One needs to add a single HTML line to include the Remote Uploader onto their pages. Any users can then select a file, set a title and send this information to the repository. The authentication is carried out by the "classic HTTP dialog box", in order to minimize phishing attacks.
None, this should work on a vanilla EPrints. Use of HTTPS is recommended as username/password are sent to the repository.
Un-tar the package to your archive root directory (eg /opt/eprints3/archives/ARCHIVEID/) and have a look at README.remote_uploader.
This work was commissioned by the University of Lincoln and was carried out by EPrints Services.
