The "Innovative" driver in VuFind is actually for the older Millennium system. Sierra has its own separate driver. Try these steps:
1.) Edit local/config/vufind/config.ini and change the driver setting in the [Catalog] section to "Sierra"
2.) Copy config/vufind/Sierra.ini to local/config/vufind/Sierra.ini and edit that file instead
Regarding error logs, there are three places to look:
1.) Most serious problems will go to the Apache error log
2.) If you turn on debug near the top of local/config/vufind/config.ini, many messages will be displayed on the web page (there's also a [Logging] section where you can direct messages to other locations instead)
3.) If you turn on the development mode by uncommenting the relevant line in local/httpd-vufind.conf and restarting Apache, then some VuFind screens will display more detailed information (most importantly, when VuFind throws an Exception, you will see a full

Subject: [VuFind-General] VuFind and III error
I am kicking the tires on VuFind (we are a Sierra III institution). In trying to do this I am unable to determine where one goes looking for error logs.
The install runs fine until the I am stopped at FixILS step.
VuFind is having trouble communicating with your Integrated Library System (ILS). Check your configuration. You may need to edit the
file at/usr/local/vufind2/local/config/vufind/Innovative.ini and
fill in some connection details.
The contents of this file are the defaults
; The following is a set of fields to look up for
; Change them to match your HTML
location_column = "Location"
call_no_column = "Call No"
status_column = "Status"
reserves_column = "Location"
reserves_key_name = "res"
status_avail = "AVAILABLE"
status_due = "DUE "
with the patron API commented out.
I ignored this error (what!? :-)) and went ahead and imported MARC records. I am able to run searches without a problem but my results have errors in
Call Number: An error has occurred
Located: An error has occurred
So I where do I go to find what this actually means? Also what do you mean
"Change them to match your HTML" above?
Thanks in advance,
The less time planning, the more time programming.
