i think it may have been a bad install or a bad binary compiled.

And, if you are going to install a Debian (debian, ubuntu, mint, xbuntu, kubuntu, etc. ad naseum) dont use the Wubi installer method; as someone noted it will eat your Windows partitions. Make a standard dual boot (the Windows bootloader can sideload GRUB these days Smiley )

sounds suspiciously like the start date/time of the YaBB problems.


This. Exactly.

Maybe we'll leave to JonB. (My last foray into Linux land left me with an Apache/perl install where I can't find the blasted config files to turn off mod_perl and a bunch of other stuff.  At least with Windows, if I tell it to install Wamp/Xamp to c:\ and the web files are on F:\ it believes me. And I can find the blasted config files.)

ok did some looking for testing and distros or Ubuntu Server seem to be the best free ones to do the testing on what do you think? and hope I don't have the same probs as you have had  Undecided

I don't have a Linux system I will see about setting one up when I have some time on my hands but I think I see what the prob my be if it is not a typo in the OP

i386 and in the last one is i486 will that not do something to the install as I say I am a windows man not Linux but will try to get a Linux system up and running to test on.

After getting the backup, check and make sure all the required modules got loaded with your new Perl install. My suspicion is that on the machine you're seeing the error, you logged out and part of the log in function is messed up. (Your work machine had the proper cookies and so by-passed the messed up stuff.)


Well, I reinstalled/updated all the Perl Modules and it still didn't work. So, I took the nuclear option and deleted the whole deployment, redeployed the forum and restored the personalized stuff from the backup. I dont know where it went sideways, but we are back at 100% now...

Thanks for your help Dandello and xnoddyx!  Cool

That would be a nope, same error.

Good to know about 2.5.4 being alpha. I will see if a new instance of 2.5.2 will run...



Let me correct that statement. I tried from my work machine this morning and can get to the Admin Index.

Be warned that 2.5.4 is an Alpha - lots of potential bugs and lots of things still being worked on.

Also, 2.5.2 had most of the deprecated Perl switched out and should work on up to at least Perl 5.14.

I'd grab the 2.5.2 tarball and try that first. I suspect something whomped the System.pl file or one of the required Perl Modules didn't get properly updated with the new Perl version.

Can you get into your Admin Center by directly calling AdminIndex.pl?
