SOLVED!!

Very sorry to have troubled you, it was something I did ..of course!!

For eduaction's sake, here is the explanation.

Previously, I had altered the language/Japanese/global.php file to try the different Japanese encodings. (I wanted to generate a pdf from smartsection module but could not get it to work...)

I edited the global.php file using the online provider's editing system.
I thought this would be the safest.

In short, the online editor added extra blank spaces to the global.php file.

That was the cause of all this hassle it seems.

In future, as my provider now advised, I will use my own text editor and ftp.

Thank you very much to my provider MyWebJapan who provided excellent support.

Interesting how blank space can cause these kinds of symptoms innit

Thanks for everyone's time, sorry to have troubled you.

Lesson well learnt...I hope!

Thanks for the reply Bender.

I just tried that, emptied (carefully! ) the sessions table.
Doesn't seem to have changed anything though.

XOOPS Version: 2.0.15 JP
Module Name/Version: all/core
PHP Version:4.4.2
MySQL Version:4.0.27
Web Server Software (Apache/IIS/Other): Apache
Operating System:Linux
Theme you are using:newcrimson (css adapted slightly)
Custom template: (Yes/No) yes
PHP Debug Messages: turned off - can't access now
MySQL Debug Messages:turned off - can't access now
Smarty Debug Messages:turned off - can't access now


Sudden change in behaviour.
All users including admin can log in successfully to the front page.
BUT clicking on any link to any module whatsoever, now gives the
'You do not have permission to access this area...' and takes the user/admin back to the log in screen.
If the user then logs in again, a blank white screen appears...

URL in the address bar...
Since this behaviour began, I have been getting session info in the address,
here is a concrete example..

->login to www.xxx.net/index.php

->URL changes to user.php briefly but then takes me to the front page with
->www.xxx.net/index.php?PHPSESSI ... f3d85b69e5ca85e8f1aeec534

->If I then click on any link, I get 'No permissions..' and then am taken to the login screen again with a redirect..

->www.xxx.net/user.php?xoops_red ... 080e07aefd74cf65a62f95c2e

->In this case, I clicked on a link to go to smartsection.

The site has been running really well up until now.
The only thing I can recall doing prior to this was install the PiCal module. This, though was working fine, logged in and out admin and user. Another remote user also logged in and out and used the PiCal module...

Another almost identical site on the same domain but different subdomain is working fine.

I now have no access to the admin side because as I said, this behaviour is the same with the admin account as well.

I have verified the behaviour not only with different browsers and user accounts from my own home but also from other ip addresses and accounts too.
All report the same behaviour.

Any suggestions welcomed

I have full access to the directory and the databases...I can do a full restore but would rather not

I can probably turn on the debug setting through the database too, haven't tried that yet though, thought I'd see if anyone here can lend a hand again.

TIA

individual user management?? student/teacher type of thing?

Any ideas welcomed...

I need the following functionality for a pretty serious system. I am investigating different ways and thought running it past the XOOPS community would be an excellent way to get some ideas...

The whole system is a student-teacher kind of paradigm. Here are three main things that I would like to be able to accomplish.

1->When a student logs in they have access to content that is private between them and their designated teacher.

Anyone in the teachers group can have access to all students' information but no other students can have access to each other's stuff.

The kind of things I need to do are...
make a report on a task that was done by a student. post that report and invite feedback from the student - forum type of idea would be fine I think.
Need to be able to track the history so that the student/teacher can refer to past reports.
online text and uploadable files preferrably....

2->online scheduling.
each student has a particular schedule.
I need to be able to post their schedule online and be able to have the student/teacher access it.

3->timecards
each student has to be able to clock in and clock out...need to be able to generate monthly reports from this...


Thanks very much for any and all opinions and ideas,

Is it possible to move only a post or three, rather than the whole topic?

The forums we have are manned by volunteer moderators who may be away for a few days. When they get back sometimes threads within threads have appeared and it would be great to tidy these up.

Using CBB 1.13

Thanks.

Security concerns

One of our hosts is a little concerned about the secunia security advisories.

Can anyone clarify which versions of XOOPS are still vulnerable to which kind of 'attack'.??

I notice in particular the mention of any user being able to upload script through the use of the IMG tag. Is this still a problem?

Let's say you have a group, Registered Users.
Let's say you want them to have access to a certain module BUT only between the hours of 6 and 10 at night, and weekends.

Can this be scheduled automatically?
Any ideas?

Specifically, chat sessions are available only at certain, shcheduled times.

TIA for any ideas.

THANK YOU. Deleting the entries in the tplfile table certainly did the trick.

Don't know if you have managed to get to the bottom of this one yet but I had this happen to me with a clean install on a new server.

I noticed here that upgrading was a possible culprit so I thought just to be sure, I can verify that it is not exclusively upgrading ...

So just in case it helps.

Xoops 2.2.2
Clean install (did NOT check each module for 2.2 compatability - it is a testing server / playground hehe)

Initially...
system
popnUpBlog
wordpress
Extended Profiles
..made a clone of the templates to play around


then uninstalled
wordpress this left records in the tplfile table

then installed
myAlbum-p
xcGallery

then uninstalled
myAlbum this left records in the tplfile table

then installed
xoopsGallery

then uninstalled
xcGallery this left records in the tplfile table



Hope you get this one, seems fun though (ahem...)

HTH
