Hi,

I installed eGroupware a few days ago, and just got around to the FUDForum part. Works great, except I can't get into the Admin Console. It gives me a 403 error everytime. I looked into file permissions, and while I might have them wrong, it sure looks like they are right. What I did notice though was that my name did not show up at the bottom with the Administrator color. Instead, it was the same default color as a normal user. When I looked at the member list, nothing stuck out to show me as the administrator either.

Is there something I can check to make sure I am set as the administrator? I tried looking in the database and in the GLOBALS.php file, but didn't see where it would be set.

I did see one other post in this forum that looked like someone had the same problem, but at the end they just said they fixed it, and didn't explain what they did. Sad

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Does your directoryindex in apache include index.php?

Hi, Thanks for the quick reply.

index.php is in the DirectoryIndex list.

The page it tries to take me to is fudforum/3814588639/adm/admglobal.php?
which does exist.

D'oh! Just looked at it again and found the problem which I'll share in case anyone else runs into it.

The eGroupWare installation did not set permissions (I would have sworn I checked that yesterday too!) I needed to chmod the php files AND the adm directory. It appears I changed the files, but never did the directory.

Bummer. Sorry for tying up your time, but I am glad it is working, and if I hadn't looked into the DirectoryIndex I wouldn't have found it, so thanks for your help.

Any suggestion on permission settings for the files and directory? I set them both to 755 and they work, but maybe that's to much.

Thanks again!

755 are good permissions for the dir.

Don't mess up with yourself. I recognized the same thing after a fresh eGroupWare install.

Only strange thing: the bug is known since 1.0.0.0 but nothing happened?!?

hello josh,
I have a similiar problem to yours, but the permissions dind't fix the problem.
I get the next error when I tried to enter de Admin Control Panel:
"Warning: main(): Unable to access ./GLOBALS.php in /docroot/egroupware/fudforum/1524509230/adm/admglobal.php on line 13

Warning: main(./GLOBALS.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /docroot/egroupware/fudforum/1524509230/adm/admglobal.php on line 13

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required './GLOBALS.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /docroot/egroupware/fudforum/1524509230/adm/admglobal.php on line 13"

Do you have any other suggestions?

Thank you

Yes, the main page of the forum works and any other page, like post a message in the test forum, also works.
