Is there a way to get the inventory list of everything we have on my CA? I want to print out a list to compare it to our physical archives and match up whats missing. We also have a lot of entries with missing media so we dont want those , cheers!

I'd say Basic search results are your best bet. If you search for * it'll return all objects (well, the ones you have access to). Then you can filter those without media and export the list to Excel/XLSX

Thanks for the quick reply! Is ther anyway to make page results more than 48 entries?

Yeah, there are settings to do that in app.conf. If you're exporting to CSV or XSLX, it'll always run the full list though, not just the current page

You'll have to increase the PHP max execution time on your server to generate a large report like that

Also we have had problems uploading a video file, is there a size limit? might it because of the size? 8.33 gigs.

Is there any other way to download it? Im not too sure what "PHP max execution time on your server " means, Ive tried researching it but thats going to take some time before my IT gets back to me. thanks again!

No, there is not, unfortunately. The server is going to need time to process the script.

As for the 8GB file, yeah that's definitely to big to upload via browser. Most webservers have some kind of limit baked in.
That's where the media importer comes in handy: http://docs.collectiveaccess.org/wiki/Media_import

Ok, thanks. CA gives me an error after a few mins of uploading, Ill try it again and see exactly what the error was

Either way, 8GB is too big
There are some settings that you can tweak to allow bigger requests, but in the past the apache web server had a hard limit of 2GB for a POST request baked in
There was no way to get past that
Maybe that's changed, but I doubt it. It's just not practical
