Version(s): All
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.

##### Misc:

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

Keyword(s): ftp empty list blank

#### Problem:

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

#### Solution:

This may be an issue with non-standard ftp servers. Some ftp servers do not return a file listing to php's ftp_* functions.

Keyword(s): error upload file size php ini

Version(s): 1.0.6 > CVS
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): 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:

Version(s): BETA-2002-04-30 > CVS

#### 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.

Keyword(s): fatal call mcrypt module libmcrypt

#### Problem:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mcrypt_module_open()

#### Solution:

The mcrypt module is either not installed or is broken. Please take one of the following solutions:
• Recompile php4 with mcrypt support enabled.
• Dowload the latest version of WeebleFM (which at the time of this writing would be beta 2002-04-14). Verisons after 1.1 have an option to disable mcrypt.

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

#### 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".

Version(s): 1.0.5 > CVS
Keyword(s): mcrypt libmcrypt module

#### Problem:

Warning: No algorithms found in module dir...

#### Solution:

MCrypt is unable to find any encryption modules in the default path. Check the following settings:
• Check the value of mcrypt.algorithms_dir= in php.ini. This should be set to the directory where libmcrypt resides.
• The fucntion can be modified to explicitly state the directory. e.g. mcrypt_list_algorithms ("/usr/local/lib/libmcrypt"); [assuming that is where your mcrypt library resides.]
• Dowload the latest version of WeebleFM (which at the time of this writing would be beta 2002-04-14). Verisons after 1.1 have an option to disable mcrypt.

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.

Modified: Wed Jan 10 22:50:39 UTC 2018
Version(s): 1.0.6 > CVS

#### 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.

Version(s): 1.2
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.

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.

Version(s): 1.0 > BETA-2002-04-30
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.

##### 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.

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.
