Re: admin.php giving blank page

Step 1. Follow the instructions to enable php debugging on your website (methods 2 or 3)

Step 2. Try to access admin.php again

Step 3. If any error messages are displayed, please respond to this thread with the error messages.

got the same issue. how did you solve it?

Re: admin.php giving blank page

simplest solution, delete the /cache/adminmenu.php script from your site then re-enter the Administration Menu. XOOPS will act like this is your first time entering the Administration Menu and regenerate the adminmenu.php script.

While you are deleting the adminmenu.php script, you should also check that permissions are set properly on the /cache folder.

got further but got more error messages:

Warning: xoops_cp_header(): Failed opening '/modules/system/cache/adminmenu.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /public_html/include/cp_functions.php on line 26

and it doesn´t recreate the adminmenu file.

the one I removed was located in modules/system/cache/adminmenu.php

maybe its because its an old version of xoops. but it just doesnt recreate adminmenu.

Re: admin.php giving blank page

no, more than likely permissions on the /cache folder itself has changed so that the web application can no longer write to that folder.

Try changing the permissions to 777 on *nix/Apache machines or giving IUSR_<SERVERNAME> full control on that directory on a Windows machine. If you are unsure how to do this, check with your hosting provider.

ok. I've solve the problem.
i am running XOOPS 2.0.18 with apache2 and php5.

the problem is, that when you modify the settings then the file /cache/adminmenu.php will be deleted and normaly a new one should be created. the second stage doensn't work onmy installation - so the folder /cache is empty (and 0777).

the solution ist to backup before the file adminmenu.php. after you modify the settings and become the blank opage upload the backuped file adminmenu.php and SET THIS FILE ON 0777. now you can go into the administration and you should now update the system module (go on modules/update system module). after that give adminmenu.php normal permission (0644).

I know that this is a really strange procedure evertime when you change someting you should do that - but on my installation it works.

Write if it also works on your installation.
