When I try to change admin options I get an error. I am using version - 1.94-RC2 -

Not Acceptable

An appropriate representation of the requested resource /chat/admin.php could not be found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


Everything else works fine. can register new members and all else is fine. I just cant set up the admin options.

Thank you,

  • Please try the site admin section/error log and are if there is a more specific explanation. It could be the sessions disabled on newer php versions, but not sure.
    We need more info to hunt down this behaviour.
    Can you provide a link?
    Can you separately install rc4 or even upgrade your chat to latest?

    I can not see any entry for an error log.

    I do not know if I could manually upgrade to a newer version, I am not very good at website building, and this is my first chat ever.

    Thank you very much for your time, and let me know if there is anything else I an do for you.

    I should have been more clear?

    I get the error when I try to change "configuration" under admin area.

    I can change any value, but when I try to hit "save" I get the error that says
    "
    Not Acceptable

    An appropriate representation of the requested resource /chat/admin.php could not be found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

    When I look in the directory, I do see the file chat/admin.php

    Thank you again.

    Why don't my newest answers show here?

     
  • Because you were posting as anonymous, so they were awaiting for moderation.

    Is that it? No more answers or are you busy?

    Please let me know.

     
  • Yes, sorry, busy like hell with a new job, moved with family to a new country, my laptop is broken, so it will take a while to get back on track.
    But be sure I'll get on and let you know.
    Thanks.

    Wonderful Holidays meantime ;)

    Same problem here even with RC3. Tried multiple machines and internet programs (IE and FF). Says admin.php can not be found however I have it in RC2 and RC3 right were it should be but no dice.

     
  • Try RC4 and see what you get.
    Latest php>5.3 versions might have security mods enabled that causes that. Anyway, prior versions were not compatible with php 5.3 and above.

    LE: sorry, RC3 is the latest released. I was confused! Huhh

  • Make sure you DON'T use single quotes in any field in the config area. That should be fixed in RC3 only.

  • First poster, read your chat lurking. I made some suggestions and comments.
    Second poster, you can also look there and see if any applies.
    That will only be visible for the next 4 days.

    I don't understand why you post anonymously, how do you get notified then? I think I will restrict posting to reg users here, so I don't waste my time.

    All the best!

    Where is a link for RC4?

     
  • This is from the FAQ:

    10Q.
    I cannot make any changes in the admin panel. It says it was successfully updated, but when I check back, nothing changed.
    10A.
    a. A reason could be if you use the ' character in a field, without commenting it out with a backslash .
    Example:
    If a room name is called Men's Room, you have to comment it out with \' like this: Men\'s Room.
    But I strongly recommend you avoid ussage of the ' (use ’ instead) or \ chars in your chat setting values.
    b. There is something wrong in your database (c_config table) like the order of the fields or types/sizes of them.
    c. You’re using a wrong config/config.lib.php file or admin/admin5.php one - if you upgraded (make sure you replaced the old one with the new released one).

    No single quotes anywhere. Checked all permission settings per manual install instructions. Nothing works. RC3

     
  • I'm not sure which one of you is posting. 2 anonymous with two different setups. How can I help...

    Sorry to be doing this as anon.

    I didn't know it mattered, but I have signed up and will use my user name from now on.

    My apologies.

     
  • It's ok. Usually it doesn't matter, but in this case, you were two in the same topic ... you can imagine I wouldn't know who's posting when... ;-)

     
  • One question: during the setup, did you change the table names? they should be like c_config not config. rename them back to leading c_ prefix, except for bot ones. If you install (or reinstall) RC3, keep the default table names.

    I have not changed any code anywhere. everything is as installed, and I used the auto install. I believe the problem could be because I am not running your newest version, with my php 5.4.23.

    I will install your newest version and let you know what happens.

    I will not be able to do it right away, so it will probably be after the holidays before I get to it.

    Meanwhile, I hope you have a good Holiday, and thank you for all the help.

    And, I am no longer anonymous !

    Peace.
