Error line 848

Post by liora » Mon Sep 04, 2006 4:38 pm

Anytime anyone tries to leave a comment on my blog they get the following error:

Permission denied in /home/u3/liora/html/cblog/bundled_libs/PEAR.php on line 848.

I also get the same error when I try to ping sites like technorati.

Please help! Thanks.

Hi!

Which event plugins do you have installed? It seems that one of the PEAR plugins is unable to access a specific file. Check the permissions of all files in bundled-libs if they are readable?

Many. Does this mean I'll have to disable all of them, then add one by one til I figure out which one causes comments not to work correctly?

Maybe plugins should be tested before they be made available as a working part of Serendipity? All I know is that this is a headache, and I'm not a programmer, so I don't understand "Check the permissions of all files in bundled-libs if they are readable."

Hi!

The problem is not with a plugin, but with file permissions or directory permissions, or a firewall blocking your webserver.

To be able to tell you which file it might be, I asked for the list of your event plugins. There must be one plugin (most probably the SURBL or DNSBL spamblock-addon plugins) which is acting when saving a comment. One of those plugins is not able to include the required PEAR files. This might also be because your webserver is advocating installed PEAR libraries in the PHP include_path, but is not giving you read privileges on these advocated files. This might even be the same problem like I'm dealing with in a seperate thread:

http://www.s9y.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=6634

working part of Serendipity? All I know is that this is a headache, and I'm not a programmer, so I don't understand "Check the permissions of all files in bundled-libs if they are readable."


Do you have FTP or SSH privileges? With both tools you can check if all files have "Read" privileges.

I'm just trying to help here. :) It does not seem like a serendipity problem. More like a webserver-setup or permission problem, which no plugin can solve, but only you or your admin. :-)

Best regards,
Garvin

Thanks for trying to help. I uninstalled. Too much headache for someone without PHP / Pear know-how.

Hi!

I'm sorry, all I can do is to offer help. It surely would have been an easy issue, if your web provider was willing to check his server setup.

But help can only come to those who are willing to be helped. :)

Best regards,
Garvin

Hardly. My web provider (aplus.net which provided me with your software) had no idea what to do. I went through several tech people, both over the phone and in email, all of whom didn't understand the PHP error and were as lost as I was. I finally uninstalled Serendipity, installed Wordpress, and was up and running within an hour.

I am always willing to be helped, but not have something drag on and on when there are other solutions.

Hi!

Sure, that's no problem. I hope you'll have fun with what you chose now. Chances are that if you are going to install a PEAR plugin, you will have the same issues again, though ;-)

If you had asked for more help, I could have (and still do) offer you to have a look at your host, if you could give me temporary FTP access. Then it would be a matter of a few minutes. It's quite sad though to hear that the technical support you seem to have paid for was not able to help in this regard, especially not with the extra information I gave here. Usually a sysadmin would have had a few common places to check for after what I mentioned.

Best regards,
Garvin

I get the same error everytime I try to install and/or update plugins.

It has worked before but now all of a sudden it does not.
Since it's the same installation, i.e. permissions and/or firewalls are the same, there has to be something else cooking. The XML-file loaded (http://netmirror.org/mirror/serendipity ... bar_se.xml) looks corrupt in my web-browser. Could that be the problem?

I have also tried to make a fresh install and I'm getting the same error.

Any ideas why and how to solve this?

You can delete the file by entering the configuration page for Spartacus and clicking the Save button. You don't even have to make changes.

The XML usually returns a namespace error when you try to load it in your browser, so that's likely not the problem.

Are you getting exactly the same error as the first post? If not, could you open a new topic in Bugs with details on your Serendipity version and error symptoms?

Thanks. That did the trick for me.

Love it when a good plan comes together!

I'm surprised the file was the problem, but I'm glad it's fixed.
