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.

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,

I'm kind of afraid to go into it, but could it be some error in the database?

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

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.

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.

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?

Code
Select All
[Wed Oct 10 18:51:33 2012] [error] [client 216.111.246.218] script not found or unable to stat: /home/midohi/public_html/cgi-bin/yabb2/{yabb html_root}, referer: http://www.midohiospeakeasy.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl?action=modskin 



The highlighted section is where the problem is originating - there's an issue with YaBB resolving the actual location of the file it needs. (We shouldn't be seeing
Code
Select All
{yabb html_root} 

at all ever in that line. ) So check your paths first as something is keeping Admin/ManageTemplates.pl (and probably other things as well) from putting the proper path where it belongs.

Yeah, HTML Dir: = /home/midohi/public_html/yabbfiles

I think that just means I don't have a 403 (or 404).shtml file, which I don't. I only have a 500.shtml in there.


ok now as the HTML Dir: was set ok
can you also check Templates Dir: this will be
/home/midohi/cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates
or
/home/midohi/public_html/cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates

ok now for the permission test  /yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/default.css is set to CHMOD of 644
also test
/home/midohi/cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates is set to CHMOD of 755
or
/home/midohi/public_html/cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates is set to CHMOD of 755

/home/midohi/cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates/default is set to CHMOD of 755
or
/home/midohi/public_html/cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates/default is set to CHMOD of 755

also all files in
/home/midohi/cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates/default
or
/home/midohi/public_html/cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates/default
is set to CHMOD of 644
if the CHMOD dont work try 777 for the dirs and 666 for the files in /home/midohi/public_html/cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates

I have 2: the default and the Old Style 2.1. 

I get this error even when I try to make a new color scheme and save it under a new file name.
