Revision 25911, 2.0 KB (checked in by ak19, 8 years ago)

Some weeks or a couple of months ago, this new bash script needed to be added to nzdl's /greenstone/custom/gti folder so that the nightly cronjob referring to a script with such a name could still continue to function (the original script had disappeared a long time back and none of us knew what was actually in it). This new script is being committed to svn so that if it ever goes missing from nzdl again, we'll have a copy stored. Note that it will need to be checked out into /greenstone/custom/gti and not a GS2's bin/script folder, unlike other files in the other-projects/gti area of svn.

4# I have guessed at the logic it contained based on the script's name
5# of "wget-status-page"
6# This script wgets the dynamic status page at
8# and saves it into /greenstone/custom/gti/etc/status.html so that it
9# can then be viewed statically at
