don't which, if any of the above were for me.
yabb4 is the 2.4 folder and filebrowser shows you the files.

advanced_settings.pl vs 2.3.1 was used once and then removed, just to confirm something.

advanced_settings.pl vs 2.4 back where it belongs, as per installalation

Is yabb4 still the right folder?


You know, this just made me think...

When I created my new YaBB installation, I kept my old install at

/httpdocs/cgi-bin/yabb2

The new install was put at

/httpdocs/cgi-bin/yabb24

Do you think it could be something as simple as the YaBB install path not being taken care of in just this one case?

I have PM'd you the Plesk credentials again.  I verified the credentials work on a separate machine in my home.

If so, please read your current actual Settings.pl file. 

I'm not enough of a Perl mechanic to tell you "how" it got that way.

I think the simplest solution is to e-mail me the Settings.pl file that 'works with 2.31, but not with 2.4'.  Where you have a 2.4 install, and the 2.31 Settings_Advanced.pl in place.

Don't take this personally, but if you want 'me' to fix things/figure it out, you need to take a 'chill pill' (or whatever they call it in your locale) on changing things so I am dealing with a stable set of assumptions. Please?  Wink

At the moment I am reasonably sure that one of your settings, when read in an assignment statement as Perl code by version 2.4 is the source of the issue.   

Cool

Very nice catch.

Have three.

I have been following along and appreciate the work you two are doing.  It has made me envious that I do not have my own server to work with.

I have nor figured out specifically why you are getting the error with 2.4 and I don't, but I have a pretty good idea of the cause. "its komp-lee-cated".

It came to me last night while while asleep, after reading a seemingly unrelated post, and making a critical recognition about Settings.pl.  Something I had long puzzled over.

from the unrelated post:
Quote:
For your information, I found what was behind this problem of images not appearing : it was a forbidden character in the langage files (the lines used by Javascript).


http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1242834724

the bingo thought:

Settings.pl (not Settings.txt) is actually Perl code that gets read in/interpreted.  Its one of the settings causing a syntax error during the Perl opcode creation process when it reads Settings.pl during 'syntax tree' build.  That's why we are getting a CGI error thrown, its a code error literally.

I'm going to go get your data.

I'll send you a PM


I probably will not be able to do this before tomorrow some time.

I think the 8000char limit prevents all of settings pl to be sent.
Can I attach using PM?

Hi louwk

You are on the same track I am on at the moment, which is building a table of 'exactly' what is installed on my system.

Its Active Perl 5.8.8 build 822.  Its the only Perl that has been installed on this server.  I used it because it was the 'flavor' I was running on my 'other' W2K3 server that also had 2.1 and 2.2.2  YaBB forums running plus Bloxom and Discus. So I knew it worked, and I had heard bad things from others about Perl 5.10 (like your experience). The other server started with Perl 5.6, as that was what I was running on my NT 4.0 that was running 2 Discus boards and a Perl-based upload system when it finally expired about a year and a half ago.  We held a proper Irish Wake for the old geezer. Many years of honorable service.  Wink

I have not abandoned the idea of a workround either.  Like I said probably a red-headed stepchild. but there are not a lot of brilliant ideas floating about either.

Again, I admire your tenacity.  I hesitated to tell you to re-install Perl (although it was also on my mind) because I don't think its the most likely suspect.  could you PM me the FQDN of your forum along with the path's you have used?

It would be great if you could paste Paths.pl and Setting.pl into 2 PM's  - this was critical to me getting Karen England's Cpanel install debugged.

This way I can replicate the install on my local loop.  Cool

Thanks and Good Luck.

OK, here is what I did:

I installed the latest ActivePerl, vs 5.10.o build 1005
I installed all required modules
i spent 8 hours modifying, hacking, and so forth, all the scripts written before, so as to accommodate every old facility under perl 5.10  Angry

I re-installed Yabb 2.4, result being: the problem is still there.

Benefit? finally made it to the latest perl.

correction for last message:
"However, ActiveState does no longer support module installation via its PPM functionality [should have added: 'for any modules pre vs 5.8 and 5.10'], as the module repositories [for these versions] are no longer at ActiveState..."

I have installed Time::HiRes but that doesn't make a difference at all, except that the YaBB setup tells me so.

Re installing modules: I indicated that that I run Perl 5.6.1 from ActiveState and it's newest version is 5.10 However, Active State does no longer support module installation via its PPM functionality as the module repositories are no longer at activestate, but somewhere else. I did a hack in PPM to allow it to search somewhere else, but keep getting "can't find a PPD file for..." CPAN ( or MCPAN) doesn't work for me, don't know why.

I am currently debating with myself whether to install perl 5.10 and whether it is backward compatible enough to run all the other stuff I have.

Can you tell me which Perl vs you run?
Lou

@louwk

Do you know how to use the Perl Package Manager?

Its probably already installed, look in your Start Menu under Active Perl.

http://docs.activestate.com/activeperl/5.6/faq/ActivePerl-faq2.html

Its actually MUCH more straightforward than that page would imply. Its got a built-in search for modules.

CPAN is the largest alternative repository.

That said,  I would install Time::HiRes

Net::SMTP::TLS  is used for SMTP authentication when the SMTP server requires it. (its SSL for SMTP).
Crypt::SSLeay    is used for Support of GoogleSpell
