stupid 404 error
I have Perl installed. i have Yabb installed, permissions setup and IIS5 running on a winxp system. I try to go to http://localhost and i dont get anything. I cant access the forums on my other computers on the LAN ive tried my 192. address and nothing.

I have it installed in the standard directories with
C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\insidiouslegion\cgi-bin\yabb2\YaBB.pl
C:\perl\bin\perl.exe
Ive been working on this for a few hours now and just cant seem to figure out what im doing wrong. Im thinking this must be a simple issue that i just cant figure out, like a home directory issue or something, but i cant find the issue.

Re: stupid 404 error
Well, I'm sure what is wrong.

1st - are you 100% sure its IIS5, not 6??  Maybe its the MS Personal Web Server?


read this page about IIS permissions -

http://www.newnetenterprises.com/merchants/web_tutorials/iis6_yabb.htm


where did you put the yabbfiles???

Is IIS enabled for auto-start in Windows Service Manager???  Did you start the website in the IIS MMC?

IF you aren't really familiar with IIS, I may have another 'quick solution for' XP

Look on my Excruciatingly Correct Guide -

http://bravo.newnetenterprises.com/wordpress/

Good Luck
Wink

Re: stupid 404 error
I am 100% sure its IIS5 5.1 to be exact.

Permissions were setup according to another post you did i read.

Yabb files are located in:
C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\insidiouslegion\public_html\

and ill read what you just posted Cheesy

Re: stupid 404 error
OK i did the xamp install instead. and everthing went smooth except when i did http://localhost all i got was a page that said

"it worked"

and when i try the

http://localhost/insidiouslegion/cgi-bin/yabb2/Setup.pl

I still get a 404 error. I did have xamp previously installed on this system which is vista home deleted the install and reinstalled it.

My sql and apache services are both green

Re: stupid 404 error
On XAMMP - if its a default install to C:\xampp -

The yabb2 folder (and all its stuff) goes in c:\xampp\cgi-bin

and the yabbfiles folder (and that stuff) goes in c:\xampp\htdocs.

You should't have gotten 'it works' when you go to http://localhost - you should have been redirected to the 'XAMMP' page.

BTW - You don't need to start MySQL to make YaBB work.

All you need is Apache and Perl.

The reason I asked about making sure on IIS 5 is that it (IIS 5) has a peculiar problem with YaBB and needs the YaBB code to be patched with the 'NPH' fix.  But lets not worry about that now.

I have my fingers crossed for you - there are no permissions or anything like that to be set.

Good luck
Cool

Re: stupid 404 error
The "it works" issue is resolved i had two versions of apache running.

I moved the files in the directories you indicated.
C:\xampp\htdocs\public_html\yabbfiles
C:\xampp\cgi-bin\cgi-bin\yabb2

but now im getting an Error 500 when i try to go to
http://localhost/cgi-bin/cgi-bin/yabb2/Setup.pl

Error 500

Re: stupid 404 error
Umm ahhh -- lets see

1st, when you go to http://localhost - what do you get???  

If you aren't directed to the XAMPP page - all yellow, white and orange - your XAMPP install was not right.


IF it is OK - then - Run the perlinfo()  page option on the XAMPP page. It it works then Perl is working.


Did you chose (for some reason) to activate 'mod_perl' during the XAMPP setup screen???  If so, we need to fix that - its easy - just tell me


IF you got the XAMPP Page and mod_perl is not activated then -

lets just clean up a bit - delete whatever YaBB folders you may have copied in - just send 'em to the recycle bin.

BTW - there is no need for a xammp\cgi-bin\cgi-bin

-- Extract YaBB somewhere else -

-- copy the files from inside the cgi-bin download - yabb2 and below to the \xampp\cgi-bin folder

you should now have c:\xampp\cgi-bin\yabb2 and a group of files and folders under that.


-- now, copy the files from inside the public_html download - from yabbfiles and below
to htdocs.

you should now have c:\xampp\htdocs\yabbfiles and a group of files and folders under that.


-- type in http://localhost/cgi-bin/yabb2/Setup.pl

when you get to the set paths part, YaBB should auto-detect everything by itself

Edited:
Just thought of this - did you fix all the shebang lines?
Note: - I have two sets of YaBB files because I run BOTH 2.4 and 2.5 - you should just have yabb2 - under cgi-bin and yabbfiles under htdocs.  



Below is what it looks like on a running server - the one those guides are on, BTW -
