Re: You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl
Thanks everyone for the info.

I still haven't found the solution. Permissions are all correct. I double checked the path settings page against folder names and all the paths are correct as far as I can see.

Where else could the path be messed up? And would it cause that error saying I'm not allowed to have access?

Re: You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl
Maybe this might help:

This page works:
http://www.midohiospeakeasy.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl?action=modcss

But this is where I get the error:
http://www.midohiospeakeasy.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl?action=modcss2

Same thing with the Template Configuration page:
http://www.midohiospeakeasy.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl?action=modskin

But this gives an error:
http://www.midohiospeakeasy.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl?action=modskin2

Now I know the links won't work for you, but when I click on the non-working links, I get a 500 Internal Error.

Re: You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl
All a 500 error actually says is that something stopped the script from acting like it's supposed to - create an html page and sent it out.

In this case, the path to the file that's supposed to be being saved is messed up and so Apache is is saying WTF.

I suggest you PM xnoddyx with your admin and ftp particulars so he can do more sleuthing for you.

Re: You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl
I'm kind of afraid to go into it, but could it be some error in the database?

xnoddyx, would you mind terribly?

xnoddyx, would you mind terribly?

me and Dandello both have some ideas on what it may be
one is a version mismatch from a older or newer yabb version
it may also be a corrupt system file/files as in the part of the sever log you posted it had /public_html/cgi-bin/yabb2/{yabb html_root}
and that code tag should not show up there

so to find out what is happing i will give it a good look over and also check some files out as well then post back on what i find and if i need is it ok to setup a test on your website as well and don't worry about your forum the test won't affect it. and no i don't mind we are here to help  Smiley so if you can set me up a admin ac on your forum and send that and your ftp settings in a pm to me i will get to this for you after i have some sleep and with any luck we will have you back up and running soon  Wink

Re: You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl
ok i cant login to the forum as i get
Quote:
INTERNAL SERVICE ERROR 500
If you're seeing this page, it's because I accidentally blocked your IP address. in an attempt to keep out Chinese forum spammers. I apologize for the inconvenience.

I want to know if I've blocked some friendly people, so if you can't access the site, please e-mail me at xxxxx@xxxxxxxxxxxxx.com and let me know what your IP address is. You can find that out by going to www.whatismyipaddress.com.

Love,

Spentastico the absent-minded Admin!

xxxxx@xxxxxxxxxxxxx.com

and the ftp info you sent me loads to a empty root so i cant look at anything.

Re: You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl
Now I really don't know what's going on. All the files are there, permissions are right, etc. I haven't touched anything since we messaged last night, even made some posts on the forum.  I'll message you.

Thanks again for trying to take a look.

Re: You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl
I'm also getting a 500 on the main YaBB page.

I am coming to the conclusion that your host is messing you up. (Have you talked to them? While I'm not a strong server person, I do know that if things like folder ownership gets messed up, the FTP doesn't work properly and it can kabosh file and folder permissions. That part I can attest to personally.)

What I'm saying is if the second install actually went in properly and you're on a *nix/Apache server, YaBB should work. If it isn't working, then something is wrong on the server/host side. Possibly with an .htaccess file in the root that's misconfigured, possibly something more complex.

Re: You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl
Thanks for the info. Could I try removing the .htaccess files to test that theory, or would that mess things up?

ok i see what may be a prob with Settings.pl with the ip bans and the email bans but still working on this i setup a test on your host here and its working fine http://www.midohiospeakeasy.com/cgi-bin/yabbt/YaBB.pl
so just have to see what is up with your main forum i have copied over the main yabb2 files to test your forum files on my test server not members or that just the system files and will post back when i have more info for you.
