Problem with ./templates/...tpl files not being forund

Post by StuartBall » Sat Feb 26, 2005 4:10 pm

I am attempting to update from EM 0.0.10a to 0.1.13. I deleted the /admin/mods/ directory and all it contained and then uploaded the new version. Following this, the contents of /admin/mods/easymod is as follows:

Code: Select all

I run http://" target="_blank<mysite>/forum/admin/mods/easymod/easymod_install.php

The first page comes up OK showing Install Info (database:: mysql, phpBB version:: 2.0.12, Easymod version:: 0.1.13, Update EM from:: 0.0.10a) and with three options for my phpBB server (FTP - selected, Windows, no FTP). I leave the FTP option selected and click [submit] button.

Get "A required file [./templates/step1b_ftp.tpl] is missing. Aborting install."

I get similar errors if i click on "Advanced Mode" link (A required file [./templates/step1_classic.tpl] is missing. Aborting install.) or "Display Debug Info" link (A required file [./templates/display_debug.tpl] is missing. Aborting install.)

Theses files are present in /admin/mods/easymod/templates. Here is a listing of this directory:

I have tried moving the templats directory to various positions and fiddled with access permissions (e.g. changing all files in mods directory to 744 and even 777), but to no effect. Anybody any idea what is going wrong?

EasyMOD should copy those template files during the install before this step...

Are you perhaps using a template other than subSilver?

No, I am using SubSilver.

The line that is giving the error is in easymod_display_functions.php.

Code: Select all

function display_template( $template_file, $variables)
{
	// make sure the tpl file exists
	if (!file_exists( $template_file))
	{
		echo "<h1><span class="ok">A required file [$template_file] is missing.  Aborting install.</span></h1>\n" ;
		exit ;
	}
I have checked (by inserting echo getcwd()) that the default directory hasn't been changed from /admin/mods/easymod at this point. As you can see from the error messages quoted in my original post, it is looking for "./templates/step1b_ftp.tpl" - so it should be looking in /admin/mods/easymod/templates, not in <root>/templates/SubSilver as you suggest.

It doesn't appear documented where I keep all the listed bugs, but I do seem to remember running into this problem. The strange thing is, other people aren't having it. It must have to do with a difference between upgrading and installing. I'll check it out and get back to you.

Wait a second.... Your file permissions are not right, at least not as listed. Something is missed or set to 0 (indicated by the "---"). Double-check that 744 doesn't work, and repost the file structure and errors with the CHMOD settings again.

OK, I have done a CHMOD 777 on the lot, from /admin/mods downwards, so there should not be any access issues!

Alright, this is very odd. Especially because the first step of the install requires a template and uses it just fine. It's time for some debugging.

OPEN:
easymod_display_functions.php

FIND:
easymod_display_functions.php, line 35 wrote:

Code: Select all

	if (!file_exists( $template_file))
	{
		echo "<h1><span class="ok">A required file [$template_file] is missing.  Aborting install.</span></h1>\n" ;
		exit ;
	}

REPLACE WITH:
easymod_display_functions.php, line 35 wrote:

Code: Select all

	if (!file_exists( $template_file))
	{
		echo "<h1><span class="ok">A required file [$template_file] is missing.  Aborting install.</span></h1>\n" ;

		// DEBUG INFO
		print phpversion() . "<br />\n";
		print getcwd() . "<br />\n";

		$dir = '.';
		$dh  = opendir( $dir );

		while( ( $filename = readdir( $dh ) ) !== FALSE )
		{
		   $files[] = $filename;
		}

		sort( $files );
		print_r( $files );
	}

FIND:
easymod_display_functions.php, line 231 wrote:

Code: Select all

	display_template( './templates/display_debug.tpl', $variables) ;
BEFORE, ADD:
easymod_display_functions.php, line 231 wrote:

Code: Select all

	// DEBUG INFO
	print_r( $variables );

And then let's see what happens.

OK, I made the changes you suggested to easymod_display_functions.php.

If I click the [Submit] button, it goes away and thinks about it for a bit, and then gives an error.

Code: Select all

A required file [./templates/step1b_ftp.tpl] is missing. Aborting install.

Fatal error&#58 Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /pub/home/stuart59/htdocs/forum/admin/mods/easymod/easymod_display_functions.php on line 67
The area where the error occurs in easymod_display_functions.php is:

Code: Select all

58  // look through the file, displaying each line to the screen
59  while (!feof( $template))
60  {
61      // get a line from the file
62      $line = fgets( $template, 4096) ;
63
64      // see if there is a template variable on this line
65      $prev_endpos = 0 ;
66      $pos = strpos( $line, '{{')+2 ;
67      $endpos = (strlen($line) > 2 ) ? strpos( $line, '}}', $pos)-1 &#58 $pos ;
Presumably, $template is empty because it hasn't been able to read the file, so it is looping forever.

Your code to print the current directory and its contents has not produced anything! That suggest to me getcwd() returns null.

As far as I can see, what it does before this point is to go through the various access checks. The debug info seems to suggest it has made these checks and they look to have been successful (apart from [ACCESS_TMP]). Could it be a side effect of one of these checks that is causing the problem?

Do me a favor: Put a file called phpinfo.php into the admin/mods/easymod/ directory with the contents of:

Code: Select all

<?php phpinfo(); ?>
