Greetings. I am very new to Drupal, and am in the process of helping our web librarian set up an Extensible Catalog instance for our library. See http://drupal.org/project/xc
If I have posted in the wrong place, please let me know.
Our test instance is Drupal 6.26, running on PHP Version 5.3.10-1ubuntu3.4 under Ubuntu 12.04.
It lives on an Ubuntu KVM guest within another Ubuntu 12.04 host.
Our current site is hosted using Plone/Zope. The primary reason for migrating to Drupal 6 is the existence of the eXtensible Catalog (XC) Drupal Toolkit.
For the most part, I take care of the server-side and she administers the content, so I only know a little about the design workflow, what I have seen her do, basically.
She reports that some nodes do not stay published. She says she cannot perceive any pattern as to which ones revert to unpublished or what causes it. At first, I suspected the cron job might be involved, but testing doesn't bear that out so far. Then I found a vaguely similar situation in http://drupal.org/node/634002 where the hardened PHP extension suhosin needed to have permitted file limits increased. But, for one thing, there were no file uploads made to the affected nodes, and for another, no suhosin parameters appear in any of the php.ini files in /etc/php5/ apache2, cgi or cli directories . I hesitated to add them because, while I suspected they need to be in the apache2 php.ini, I wanted to make sure first. Is this correct?
In the process of looking for answers I came across http://drupal.org/node/423478 which refers to FileField issues, which caught my eye because we do have it enabled for CCK, but again this seems to only affect nodes with uploaded files.
I'm at a loss how to proceed diagnosing this behavior. Does anyone have some ideas for things for me to read up on or check?
Thanks very much for your help,
