I've been trying to implement a small, local IIIF supported image server using the Loris image server. I'm running this on a Centos box (for which I followed the special setup instructions at https://github.com/loris-imageserver/loris/blob/development/doc/redhat-install.md
I was able to make it through the setup up process, and when hitting the loris server (for me, it's located at myserver/loris), I'm greeted with the friendly loris welcome screen:
"This is Loris, an image server that implements the IIIF Image API Level 2. See http://iiif.io/api/image/2.0/
for details and https://github.com/loris-imageserver/loris
for the source code and implementation details."
So far, so good.
That is until I try to move on to the IIIF's next step of publishing my metadata. I have no idea how to do this. I've tried placing my metadata in diffrent locations on my server where I would think the loris server would be looking (such as /usr/local/share/images (from the conf file), /var/www/loris2 (actual directory containing loris), /var/www/loris (web directory), etc). I keep just getting the error:
Not Found: could not resolve identifier: [Identifier] (404)
I'm banging my head against the wall trying to figure out why it can't resolve the identifier. I assume it's because I haven't placed the metadata in the right spot or in the correct way, but neither loris or IIIF seem to say where and how I'm supposed to do that. If anyone has any experience with this, any pointers would be greatly helpful.
