Thanks for the reply Ron, we have tried a variety of users and browsers
(FF, Chrome and IE), successfully published projects and 1 page tests all
with the same result. Curiously our security on email detects an exe file
in the broken zip and will not let us send it, but will let us send the
non-broken zips I have made from the new build 2.1 server.
The old current server started out quite a few versions back and has been
upgraded to 2.0 with changes to the LDAP settings made along the way as our
LDAP server moved. The 2.1 build is on a new VM server constructed purely
for xerte which makes me think we missed something key in the set-up for
LDAP to fall so flat. I did increase the php memory settings as they seemed
low on the new install, and as I say the zip export works on 2.1.
Thoughts on upgrading 2.0 to 2.1 to see if it fixes the zip? Do not want to
risk breaking the LDAP on current live system.
Tom Reijnders has had a couple of goes with LDAP fixes in 2.1 - both
interesting, but neither quite my problem, hence why I thought I'd skip
that completely as there is still the 'how do we transfer xerte files
between servers' question.
