Hi again,

alright. I was mistaken.
I downloaded my desired plugins from the plugins page, I unzipped them, I copied the folders into the /plugins directory of my blog... and they don't show up on my admin interface.

After a little bit of thinking I came up with the idea that I may just have to install them from my admin interface.
There is still a problem though: if I click on the "Ereignis-Plugin installieren" link, the site that is shown to me stays blank (site address: http://www.###.de/######/s9y/serendipity_admin.php?serendipity[adminModule]=plugins&serendipity[adminAction]=addnew&serendipity[type]=event

What do I do now?

Kind regards,
dilviel

Edit: Maybe I should add that I deleted Spartacus, but from the admin site. And I did that because the page was blank even before that.

Hi!

A blank page usually means that a fatal PHP Error has occured. Do you probably have access to a PHP/CGI error log ? Another option would be to edit your .htaccess file and insert "php_value display_errors on" and see if that helps?

Most often fatal errors occur due to ressource limitations, like if you use up too much RAM...

HTH,
Garvin

Hi again,

I wouldn't know where to find such an error log.
And I cannot access the .htaccess-file. I don't even have reading permissions, as it seems and if I try to change the access permissions, I get an error message.

Is this file the problem? Its rights are: rw-r-----

Kind regards,
dilviel

Hi!

Seems your provider is pretty restrictive. :-)

Check the FAQ on s9y.org for a "fixperm.php" script that you could use to try to regain permissions on the .htaccess file. And maybe you can ask your provider about the PHP Error log if that doesn't work.

Regards,
GArvin

Hi again,

I can now access the file, thanks for the tip.
The thing is... if I insert that line you gave me, my blog won't show. "Zugriff verweigert".
I also can't see if there was a new file created...

Kind regards,
dilviel

Hi!

Okay, then your provider has also blocked setting PHP values through .htaccess.

In that case, you won't really get around contacting your provider. :-)

Garvin

Hello again!

I did as you said and contacted my server admin.
Here is, what he gave me, saying it came from the error log of the PHP interpreter:

[30-Sep-2009 14:07:44] PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /***/***/***/public_html/s9y/plugins/serendipity_event_mobile_output/mobile.class.php on line 7
[01-Okt-2009 00:32:21] PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /***/***/***/public_html/s9y/plugins/serendipity_event_mobile_output/mobile.class.php on line 7

Does that help you in any way?

May I search anywhere else for information on why the plugins page stays empty with exception of the title?

Kind regards,
dilviel

Hi!

Yes, it seems that your server has only PHP4 installed, but the Mobile Output plugin of s9y requires PHP5. You can remove the plugin by deleting your serendipity_event_mobile_output plugin directory.

HTH,
Garvin

Hi there,

and thanks again. :-) I'm good now, I think. And I'll have to persuade my server admin to install PHP5. *g*

Kind regards,
dilviel
