i get that error "module file not found"

right now, im not intersted in making the module work so much as i just want it to go away.... there are two installed modules that say "cannot find module file" and have blank names. I didnt get much from the debug mode.

when i try to uninstall them:

Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /home/theneonb/public_html/Home/modules/system/admin/modulesadmin/main.php on line 209

This error usually means that you have uploaded some junk into the /module directory. Have a look in there and if you see anything that doesn't belong, remove it. This will make the error go away.

The *only* thing that should be in /modules are the folders containing the actual modules. However, sometimes when you download and extract a module you will find that the author has bundled it in several layers of folders (eg. public_html/modules/whatever_module). When this happens, you should only upload the /whatever_module directory, as XOOPS won't go digging around in subfolders trying to find it.

So, just to be clear, your module directory *should* look like this:

/modules
/system (do not touch this one!)
/whatever_module1
/etc.

It should *not* look like this:

/modules
/system
/public_html/modules/whatever_module1 (bad!)
/etc.


But before you go deleting things...BACK UP YOUR SITE AND DATABASE. If you accidentally delete an active module without uninstalling it first, you will crash your site.

Re: MODULE FILE NOT FOUND

also if you're using FrontPage to edit your site, it makes _vti_cnf folders in your module folder.

Xoops detects these, scans them, and displays the "module file not found" error message.

You can safetly delete those folders using an FTP client but they will be hidden from inside Frontpage.

Unfortunately, even if you delete them, next time you use Frontpage, they will be recreated!

I've learnt to just ignore that error message.

You have bad records in your database file. I was able to access my xoops_modules MySQL table using phpMyAdmin and delete two rows that were missing data.

Re: MODULE FILE NOT FOUND

I also had this problem with several modules. I found that changing the permissions to the module directory help in most (but not all) cases.
