It's a fix for ONE of the problems. But I doubt it's a fix for the 403 problem. If YaBB can find the css file to open it for editing, then YaBB knows where it is and shouldn't be throwing a 'script not found' on it.  BUT, who knows?

OTAY - this kid is t-o-a-s-t.

That fix seems to break the preview.

I'm 90+% sure I am right about the problem. No more tries at fixes for now -

Cool

I'll post a recommended .htacess fix in the AM.  I don't think we can twiddle the .htaccess sucessfully - no matter whatever xnoddyx or I did with .htacess - it caused YaBB to ISE 500.

Edited:
You are correct does not fix the 403
I have returned ManageTemplates.pl to original in the cgi-bin/yt/Admin folder


Sorry no editing on the Quick Guides, but I will do it in the AM

Thanks for all your work.

Cool

This is something only your host will likely be able to fix for you. I'll post a complete explanation with it.

Re: You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl
I'm a little concerned that what should have been a simple tag addition to prevent an errant 404 broke the preview function.  Shocked

Now I'm wondering if it's actually related to the main problem.

Off to Ikea. Back to this in the AM.

Edited: if all else fails, the css and templates can be edited manually - either through the host's file manager or via FTP. That's assuming everything else works. Not what you wanted to hear, I know.  Cry

Actually, I'm fairly confident the problem will disappear.

Edited:
Tomorrow I will configure a fresh Linux VM with the same configuration - No ScriptAlias and Folder Options - they are using, to see if I can duplicate the issue.

@ spentastico -

Please ask your host if they have a ScriptAlias defined in their httpd.conf.

Thanks

Yes. The ScriptAlias is

   ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/midohi/public_html/cgi-bin/

Oh hey BTW, could you unban the other IP address associated with my account here, please? It's my work IP and it starts with a 216. I'm getting a 403 Forbidden error when I try to visit the forum there.

Thanks!!

Re: You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl
A. - I fixed your IP lock here -

B. - Speaking of fixes, I think your Host just fixed the problem.  I was just testing with Xnoddyx's test install and I was able to save Template Configurations, CSS Style Sheets and the Preview works.

It would be very useful to know what changes were made for future reference in troublehsooting.  (I have a Gunniess that says they changed IncludesNOXEC)  Smiley

It doesn't matter right now, you are probably back in business...

Smiley

Good Luck with YaBB
Cool

Yeah, the host fixed it, I guess!

Hi,

I have worked out what the problem was now. It was a layer of security that we include on our servers. It looks like the YaBB script uses some request variables that were being mistaken for cross site scripting, which was being causing the forbidden error. I have disabled this layer of security on your account and it seems to be working correctly now.
