Keyword(s): ftp empty list blank

Problem:

Logging in and file functions work but no file listing is returned.

Keyword(s): max file size php ini exceed upload

Problem:

[error] PHP Warning: Max file size of xxx bytes exceeded - file [UPLOAD_FILE_0] not saved in Unknown on line 0.

Solution:

The file uploaded exceeds "upload_max_filesize" in php.ini. Increase this to be greater than the size of the file you are uploading.

Keyword(s): php post content length exceed unknown form file size upload ini

Problem:

[error] PHP Warning: POST Content-Length of xxx bytes exceeds the limit of xxx bytes in Unknown on line 0

Solution:

The POST'd data exceeds "post_max_size" in php.ini. The FORM encoding used by the browser can significantly increase the file size, sometimes by more than double. Set this to at least 50% more then "upload_max_size".

Keyword(s): winnt WinNT winxp WinXP win2k Win2k windows session save path

Problem:

Warning: open(/tmp\sess_xxxx, O_RDWR) failed: m (2) in C:\path\to\weeblefm\check_login.php on line 46

Solution:

This error is caused by having session.save_path= set to a directory that is either non-existant or not writable by the web server.

Changing session.save_path= to a valid directory should correct the problem.

Additional Information:

Misc:

This is especially a problem on Win32 systems where the default setting of "/tmp" is not a valid directory.

Keyword(s): post max file size upload php ini form

Problem:

Uploading a file redirects you to the login page.

Solution:

The POST'd data exceeds "post_max_size" in php.ini. The FORM encoding used by the browser can significantly increase the file size, sometimes by more than double. Set this to at least 50% more then "upload_max_size".

Keyword(s): subnet mask access weeblefm

Problem:

Access denied by WeebleFM configuration.

Solution:

If you are using "255.255.255.255" as the subnet mask for any of your access list entries, try changing them to "/32".

If this doesn't correct it, double-check your $ftp_access_list and $ftp_access variables in settings.php.

Earlier releases of php (pre 4.0.6) do not properly convert "255.255.255.255" to an integer. "/xx" style masks are handled differently in WeebleFM and are not subject to this bug.

Additional Information:

Keyword(s): view search bug multiple word

Problem:

The viewer's search feature will not find multiple words. Single words work fine. terms work fine.

Solution:

This is due to a limitation in php4 versions previous to 4.0.5.

In PHP 4.0.5 and later, the viewer's search feature will highlight each individual word typed. In versions earlier than 4.0.5, only the whole phrase typed into the search box is highlighted.

Keyword(s): login user pass corrupt garbage cookie

Problem:

My user's login cookie(s) have become corrupt.

Solution:

Either the value of $key or the encryption algorithm (See $pref_ciphers in the Manual) has changed. Re-type the correct username & password and ensure that Rememer Me is checked, to save the new login cookie.

Keyword(s): SSH ssh SFTP sftp tunnel bridge secure

Problem:

Does WeebleFM support SFTP?

Solution:

The short answer to this no.

SFTP requires a special client that is SFTP aware. WeebleFM currently uses php4's built-in FTP functions (which are not SFTP aware).
Using an FTP -> SFTP bridge (or proxy) to 'tunnel' the FTP connection should work fine.

Keyword(s): back button refresh browser

Problem:

The Back button on my browser takes me back to the login screen.

Solution:

This is, unfortunately, working as designed. Don't use the back button. If you're trying to go back to the previous directory, use the 'Up One Dir' link near the top of the file listing.

Keyword(s): beta display css square rectangle ie mac

Problem:

File listing dislays as a large purple box on Mac IE v5.1.

Solution:

Upgrade to version BETA-2002-04-30 or later.

Additional Information:

Cause:
The Mac version of IE 5 doesn't seem to be able to handle lines that are in excess of about 950 characters. It was prematurely truncating the lines causing a good number of display issues.
Resolution:
We added a number of new lines into the output to prevent lines from exceeding an unreasonable length.

Version(s): 1.0 > BETA-2002-04-30
Keyword(s): escape esc \ quote " ' beta

Problem:

On some systems quotes were being escaped (backslashes "\" were being added).

Solution:

This is due to magic_quotes_gpc = on being set in php.ini. Either set this to off or upgrade to version BETA-2002-04-30 or later.
