Is anyone else getting notification that none of the librivox.org pages are able to be found? I can't get the catalog, uploader or workflow to pull up. Says "website is not available" in all three of my browsers (Chrome, IE, Firefox).

ETA: Also now seeing "server refused connection" in the MW on chrome.

Kristen,
Yes, this started just a few minutes ago. Forums work ok, but no uploader or MWs. I've reported it to the admin team.

Hello,

When I tried to open the link to upload the file, the link refuses to open. I am using Window 7. Any recommandations?

Thanks, Purpelmoon

Only recommendation is to wait, I'm afraid, until we can contact the sysadmin to put this right. I have emailed him.

Should be up and running now, per the sysadmin.

From the FAQ thread:

Q. After Uploading a file I am getting one of the following messages:
SyntaxError: JSON.parse: unexpected character (Firefox)
SyntaxError: Unexpected token (Chrome)

A. Refresh the uploader page to make absolutely sure that you are logged in, and upload again. This error seems to occur when you have become logged out unbeknown to you, perhaps a program updating in the background might be the cause

Hello,

Not an error per se, but is it a potential security problem that I can go to https://librivox.org/uploads or uploads.librivox.org and freely access ALL files on the librivox server? Even the abandoned project, bloopers, unofficial stuff, etc. And I was not logged in with my librivox account at the time, so the general public can access it. I took a screenshot but you can go there yourself: http://uploads.librivox.org/bloopers/lv_uploads.zip

Perhaps the folder permissions need to be changed so that only certain users or groups have access? I imagine having the folders public leaves LV open to bad hacker things.

Hello Prachi san,

I'm afraid you are confusing between 'write permission' & 'read permission'.
If the mentioned folders are writable, you're correct. But you can write nothing there.

We are open to public. What's wrong?

Cheers,
Masa

Thanks, Prachi! Masa is correct - it's not an error. :)

I can't remember the exact discussion when developing this, but I THINK we cannot put restriction on the "read" access without putting restrictions on the files in the MW themselves. That would mean that one-off, newbie PL's couldn't listen to the files to PL. The cost didn't justify the benefit of locking them up.

That can't have been the reason. Hiding the directory listing doesn't have anything to do with permissions. I think maybe it was left that way so that BC's could have a way to check on uploaded files without needing to be given ftp access.
