Hi,

I'm trying to install v2.2.3 on my NT box under localhost.

After the first screen I'm getting this error:

Warning: fopen("","rb") - No error in c:\bin\projects\web\htdocs\install.php on line 165
Couldn't locate start of archive


Here is what I have in the initial form:
Server root: c:/bin/projects/web/htdocs/forum/
Forum Data Root: c:/bin/projects/web/htdocs/forum/
Forum WWW Root: http://localhost/forum/

I'm running Apache, PHP4 and MySQL.

What is wrong here? Confused

Thanks. Razz

If you're referring to the install.php file, about 2,939 KB.
That is from the FUDforum2_20020712 build.

Is that what your mean?

Actually,

Just a lil' more info to add. I didn't really want to get my hands too dirty with the code, but I can't help, its in my blood Cool

I was doing a lil debugging and I noticed that the problem is ocurring in the decompress_archive method, when it tries to send $GLOBALS['HTTP_SERVER_VARS']['PATH_TRANSLATED'] as a parameter to the filetomem method. Sad

$GLOBALS['HTTP_SERVER_VARS']['PATH_TRANSLATED'] is returning as '' or null. Which is strange cuz when I check phpinfo() I can see all the server variables. Confused

True, BUT
inside install.php there is also:
if( !isset($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['PATH_TRANSLATED']) && isset($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SCRIPT_FILENAME']) )
                $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['PATH_TRANSLATED'] = $GLOBALS['HTTP_SERVER_VARS']['PATH_TRANSLATED'] = $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SCRIPT_FILENAME'];


That will try to create PATH_TRANSLATED if it is not avaliable.

Does your system have SCRIPT_FILENAME variable?

Yes it does, it is currently pointing to c:/php/php.exe.

Is that right?

Oh I see, you are running PHP as cgi module right?

Here is a possible fix:

change
if( !isset($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['PATH_TRANSLATED']) && isset($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SCRIPT_FILENAME']) )
                $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['PATH_TRANSLATED'] = $GLOBALS['HTTP_SERVER_VARS']['PATH_TRANSLATED'] = $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SCRIPT_FILENAME'];



to

        if( !isset($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['PATH_TRANSLATED']) ) {
                if( isset($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SCRIPT_FILENAME']) )
                        $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['PATH_TRANSLATED'] = $GLOBALS['HTTP_SERVER_VARS']['PATH_TRANSLATED'] = $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SCRIPT_FILENAME']
                else
                        $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['PATH_TRANSLATED'] = $GLOBALS['HTTP_SERVER_VARS']['PATH_TRANSLATED'] = realpath('install.php');
        }


If it works, please let me know.

If possible, could you give me URL to phpinfo() on your server or if not send me the html output of the function via forum PM or email (ilia(at)prohost(dot)org).

Ok, I will send it shortly.

But there is something else I noticed.

$GLOBALS["DOCUMENT_ROOT"] returns the correct value.
$GLOBALS['HTTP_SERVER_VARS']["DOCUMENT_ROOT"] doesn't

Confused

You are running a rather ancient version of PHP, which could very well be at fault for the problem you are seeing. Can you trying grabbing the Win32 PHP package from php.net and trying it.
PHP is up to version 4.2.1 now a days Wink

oh dear Rolling Eyes

Well I will try that. I am actually mirroring the production environment on the Linux web servers that I use. I guess I should tell them to upgrade as well.

Thanks. I'll let you know the progress.

Cool

You definately want to upgrade, because php < 4.1.0 contains a remote buffer exploit vunreability via file upload as well as other security related bugs.

Ok. We actually only upgrade when we need to. So I guess that time has finally come Smile

I will upgrade on the development machines first and test.

Then we will tackle the production guys Twisted Evil

Good policy, although usually security faults are something that force your hand a little bit.

Up and running fine on dev machine Cool

Thanks again.

One thing I noticed though, in the Admin Panel, when I click on Template Editor and choose the Template Set and Language to edit, it keeps taking me to a form saying: "Login Into the Forum". When I checked the source for the template edit page, I noticed that there is no 'action' tag in the form where you select the template to edit. It just has <form method="post"> and that's it Shocked

Strange Confused

hmmm...I also get this problem in the Category Management System, when I'm editing forums for a category I would click the 'Back to categories' link and get the 'Login Into the Forum' page again. But I also noticed that the link is:

http://localhost/forum/adm/admcat.php
without any parameters, when it should be something like
http://localhost/forum/adm/admcat.php?rid=1&S=77ccaf5.....


What do you think?

Fixed in the CVS, the bug was actually from another reason.
I've attached the patched file.
