View Full Version : Missing Menu in Setup Manager
11-03-2005, 03:44 PM
Having tinkered and prodded the test download to death, I downloaded and installed from scratch in the 'real' directory. All went swimmingly, until I logged into the Setup Manager - no menu, so can't set prefs etc.
Logging out and then back in makes 0 difference.
Obviously I can't get into the Event Manager to see if there's a similar problem as it needs dbase info ...
Neither php nor apache are generating any error msgs so assume all files are being found okay. Tried adding /path/to/calendar to the php_value include_path but made no difference. Any ideas on where I should look?

Have you tried reloading the files in the Setup directory? (Especially menu.php and possibly index.php).

Sorry - I don't understand what you mean by 'reloading'.
Re http://my.domain/calendar/setup/index.php, I've tried:
- clearing the cache, closing the browser and restarting
- shift+reload (a million times)
- Opera, Konqueror, Mozilla, Firefox, Lynx don't show the menu
- last-resort-broken-browser IE doesn't either
I don't think this is meant to be accessed directly.
Anyway, all I get is this: "Invalid Access - 1" at the top of a blank page.
If I look at the source, I can see where menu.php is not being included,
compared to my test install. It's really not there!
Here are the relevant lines for your perusal:
<td align="center" valign="top" class="smallText" width="150" bgcolor="#F4EECA"></td>
<td align="center" valign="top" class="smallText" width="150" bgcolor="#F4EECA"><table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" class="menuBox">

Sorry, I should have said "uploading" the file again to the server.

Just unzipped calendar.zip again into a tmp dir and ran diff on ./tmp/calendar/setup/ and my-domain/calendar/setup/.
diff sez all files are the same.
Nevertheless, overwrote all files in my-domain/calendar/setup/ with the contents of ./tmp/calendar/setup/
Made absolutely no difference whatsoever - still no menu.

Is there a way I can take a shot at FTPing the files up to the server?
11-03-2005, 11:16 PM
Don't think so - am working on my devel server here at home,
and we are fire-walled to hell and back. Not ecstatic about making holes in it either :(
But I could tar up the whole thing and upload to somewhere if you'd like?
It's pretty small just now as no content yet, am just working on templates.

What program are you using to unzip?
11-03-2005, 11:27 PM
UnZip 5.52 of 28 February 2005, by Info-ZIP. Maintained by C. Spieler. Send
bug reports using http://www.info-zip.org/zip-bug.html; see README for details.
Besides which, this doesn't make any sense.
If I could download and successfully run the trial version, and in fact it still runs just fine, and things only went pear-shaped after downloading the 2nd time and obtaining a license key, then my guess is that something went wrong at that point.

Are the trial version and the new version you've downloaded the same version number?
11-03-2005, 11:41 PM
aha! the plot thickens!
find . -name "*.*" | xargs grep "ersion" | less
trial version: ./config.inc.php:$epcCheckVersion="6.3.05";
2nd time: . ./config.inc.php:$epcCheckVersion="";
now why should this be so?

You've never logged into the Setup Manager (successfully) so that should be blank...
Try adding this to the address after logging in:

The code to display the menu is:
<table width="100%" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="8" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<td align="center" valign="top" class="smallText" width="150" bgcolor="#F4EECA"><?php require("menu.php"); ?></td>
<td align="left" valign="top">
Not sure why it doesn't...
I'm going to be gone for a bit. I'll look at this again in the morning.

Sorry - adding "?menuSelect=1" made no difference whatsoever.
btw, I've turned off all re-writing rules etc etc

Can you try copying the files in the setup directory from the other working installation?

Fixed it. You gave me the clue in your post "The code to display the menu is:"
The problem was that you have a line in your code:
<?php require("menu.php"); ?>
which I couldn't read as it was encoded.
... and I have exactly the same line in mine, but the code only executes on a fn call.
so poor old apache was Doing The Right Thing, finding and delivering 'menu.php' -- except it was the wrong one. And of course nothing was being displayed 'cos there was no fn call ...
I've changed the name of my file to 'springtop-menu.php' and all is well.
There's a moral in here somewhere about closed-source software ....
