I've been running a site smoothly for months - no changes have been made, etc. It's been wonderful...
Today I am getting this error:

XOOPS path check: Script is not inside XOOPS_ROOT_PATH and cannot run.

Is this the host screwing around, or something that I need to fix?
(btw - I applied the manual fix that skalpa posted for the mainfile.php file, no change)

Thanks for whatever insight you can provide.
The site is:

TASS Reunion Website


Thanks again!

does it happen to specific modules or the whole site?
Your site is not accessible from my place

try to empty cache folder

It happens to the whole site...
I have tried to get in every which way.
I emptied the cache, but no change.

Thanks for the speedy reply!

Warmest regards,

if you site is not so sensitive to security, as a temporary workaround, change mainfile.php:
define('XOOPS_CHECK_PATH', 0);

Then try to find out what happens in
if ( XOOPS_CHECK_PATH && !@ini_get('safe_mode') ) {
...
}

OMG...
The mainfile.php is now 0 kb.
Empty.
Nothing in it.
What do I do?

The brilliant mind of my favourite French-Canadian (Marcan) is currently helping with this issue, but any suggestions are more than welcome!
I'm told PHP is working fine (says Marcan) and that this is an "interesting problem"...

THANKS, MARCAN!!!
I appreciate the help you gave me...
You were right - it was deeper than XOOPS - it WAS a new server configuration that altered something and the hosting company was able to track it down.
Your assistance in tracking down the problem and re-building mainfile.php was invaluable! I can't thank you enough!!!

Warmest regards,
Lisa
