Re: XOOPS Session and Sessionsaver extension for Firefox

Quote:
I have noticed that I don't have this issue on the xoops.org site when using the same browser/extensions, so I was basically wondering how to make that happen.


Told you the solution for that question:

That's exactly what is happening on XOOPS.org

Re: Total disaster

And talking about backuping, If I understand well, I just need to backup the database, and the uploads folder (for the pics), right??


And custom themes of you have those (at least, working ones ).

Like I told you: backup and then upload the currect version and overwrite everything except mainfile.php.

Re: Theme problem

Quote:
Sorry about that


No worries mate

Quote:
Yes, it can be the problem, but the thing is that it was working since June... and now if I change the theme, the site doesn´t change...


You probably messed up your default theme (not probably, you did) but did not empty the templates_c map so it still kept working with the cache of the correct theme.

Quote:
Somebody said that before doing that I should recover my site. So which solution should I apply?


This one, just do. Just DON'T forget to NOT overwrite mainfile.php.

Quote:
One little question about Xoops: When I work with a site, Do the files get modified or just the database? I mean, If I replace the original files, Does it change anything?


Database of course, why do you think people keep saying you have to overwrite your files? So the answer is no.

The of course exceptions. If you use for example a module for displaying pictures, the pictures are of course saved locally and not in the database (imagine...).

Goodluck & don't forget to backup.

Re: Theme problem

Quote:
I´m very afraid of doing that since I tried this in other websites and I totally lost them...

I think I could try first reuploading the important files, and not all, since my problem seems to be very specific, I remember you: It´s just that there´s no theme... Check it here: www.filipensesachao.com and even If I change of theme, it happens nothing


People are trying to help, if you just keep saying 'don't want to do that' nobody will be able to help you AND people will start ignoring you... Not exactly what you want!

Actually your XOOPS installation is just fine, you just messed up the theme by editing it with Frontpage. When will people learn that Frontpage is not a editor for decent websites...

The solution:
- Download XOOPS 2.0.13.1
- Upload and overwrite everything EXCEPT mainfile.php
- Check or the themes are back to there original version!
- Empty the templates_c map

You site should now be fixed.

Re: XOOPS Session and Sessionsaver extension for Firefox

When the session file is written to the USER it is clearly defined as a session cookie (which a browser automatically removes when closed).

If you install an extension that intentional prevents FF from removing the session cookies, how can you blame the system?

A easy solution if you do not want to remove that extension: click the 'Logout' button in the User Menu

// Edit: I almost forgot: you _can_ mislead the sessionsaver by writing a date in a cookie instead of session (ATTENTION: this can result in somebody being logged out while for example writing an article!). Check System Admin - Settings - Own Session.

Goodluck!

Re: mod went down for xoops

You can find the version in include/version.php.

If you got a XOOPS 2.2.x version, remember that this version is classified as unstable and you should use XOOPS 2.0.x for production sites.

Re: Our Site Was Hacked - We need to know how..

Quote:
We are using XOOPS 2.0


More specific please, we know nothing with just the head version number...

Quote:
If you are speaking of the unix access logs, as in when you log into the system... This site is hosted on yahoo, and I doubt they will be willing to give up their logs for me to review.


If your host is unwilling to give you those files, I would advise you to change host. My site is hosted on a shared server, and even I can access at any time with Putty the log files.

Hope this helps you a bit

Re: GMT +2 Athens, Helsinki, Constantinople. Wrong time!

In Edit Account every user can set his own time zone. If you change this your problem should be solved...

Re: do 1.3.8 database work on 2.0x?

The 1.3.x series is safe (at least the last version, 1.3.10), so this person should at least upgrade to 1.3.10 to be safe.

But upgrading to 2.0.x should be for functionality, not safety! (Nothing holds you back of course to upgrade in name of security...)

Grtz, Jan

Re: do 1.3.8 database work on 2.0x?

Haven't seen a question like this for ages... What to do:
1. Remove _all_ files, make sure to make a backup and write down the necessary information (database login)
2. Upload XOOPS 2.0.x
3. Run install/index.php
4. Fill in the correct database information, make sure you pick the same prefix
5. The install will recognise the XOOPS 1.3.x installation, and will ask to upgrade, confirm.

Voilà, done.
