Descendany Chart gives 404 - Not Found page

  • kurt krueckeberg

    I installed version 4.2 of phpgedview. I deleted my GED file from the Admin control panel, and re-imported it.
    All charts seem to work except the Descendancy Chart. I get a "404 - Not Found" page.
    The URL to reproduce the problem is:

    How can I correct this? Any feedback is greatly appreciated. In version 4.1 the Descendancy Charts worked fine.

    It looks as if you don't have "descendancy.php" in the folder where PGV is installed.

    Another possibility is that this file doesn't have the correct permissions.

    You should have posted to message in the "Help" forum.

    Thanks for the prompte reply. I meant to post in Help. I can repost there.
    There most be some other file, other than descendancy.php, which exists, and its require'ed files. The permissions also seem correct:

    kurt@li25-169:/usr/share/phpgedview$ ls -al pedigree.php descendancy.php  ancestry.php
    -rw-rw-r- 1 root www-data  8277 Aug  1 08:21 ancestry.php
    -rw-rw-r- 1 root www-data  7057 Aug  1 08:21 descendancy.php
    -rw-rw-r- 1 root www-data 19885 Aug  1 08:21 pedigree.php

    The files that descendancy.php includes (using require) also exist:

    kurt@li25-169:/usr/share/phpgedview$ ls -al includes/controllers/descendancy_ctrl.php includes/functions/functions_print_lists.php \
    > js/autocomplete.js.htm
    -rw-rw-r- 1 root www-data 11498 Aug  1 08:21 includes/controllers/descendancy_ctrl.php
    -rw-rw-r- 1 root www-data 84465 Aug  1 08:21 includes/functions/functions_print_lists.php
    -rw-rw-r- 1 root www-data  6064 Aug  1 08:21 js/autocomplete.js.htm

    My web server is lighttpd. In /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf, I set the document root to be /usr/share/phpgedview:

    $HTTP =~ "^(www\.)?$" {
      server.document-root = "/usr/share/phpgedview/"

    Like I said, I can access my phpgedview site, and all charts work except dependency. There must be some other files

    Sorry, I meant to post in Help. Will re-attempt to do so.
