Re: how can i tell if indexing is working

This is UNIX/Linux. No news is good news! LOL! (For Sphider, it seems to think ALL operating systems are Linux! :D ) Actually, depending on the browser being used, you should notice the page is active. For example, with Firefox you will notice a spinning activity symbol on the tab. Chromium (and I p...

Re: Cant get to work

There are several directories within the admin directory. One of them is "log". These directories must be writable by the web server. In Linux using Apache, the owner must be changed to www-data. Also permissions should be set to 775. You are using BSD, but are also using Apache... I can't...

Re: Cant get to work

Forgive me for asking this question:
Do the logon user/password credentials match the "admin"/"admin_pw" defined in auth.php, lines 22 and 23?

If so, I have a couple more test echoes in mind...

Re: Cant get to work

Actually, it was ME who screwed up! The line SHOULD be:
echo "And here we sit";
My fat fingers ended the statement with a colon instead of a semi-colon. My apologies!

Re: Cant get to work

No echo message appears? Even with cookie cleared? This means Sphider isn't getting out of auth.php. Thinking this through... The logon screen is being displayed, so auth.php is initially being executed... Clicking "Submit" executes auth.php again and SHOULD then exit and return to admin.p...

Re: Cant get to work

I just wanted to be certain of where we are getting hung up. Thank you. Go to your browser settings and clear the cookie for "localhost", Try logging in again. If (when?) that fails, clear the cookie again (this is going to become a very annoying habit until we get some success), and in ad...

Re: Cant get to work

Re: Cant get to work

You are running PHP 7.2, but "safe_mode" has been deprecated since PHP 5.4! My understanding that the entry in the php.ini file, the setting safe_mode needs to be removed. Simply setting to "off" will not work. I have never actually encountered this, so I am not positive this is ...

Re: Cant get to work

In admin/auth.php, notice lines 17 and 18. Line 17 is commented out with "//", line 18 is not. Reverse this by removing the "//" on line 17 and inserting "//" at the beginning of line 18. In admin/admin.php, do the same thing for lines 18 and 19. This turns on error rep...

Re: Cant get to work

Check to confirm that the user name and password in both database.php and my.cnf match EXACTLY. Case matters.
If there is still an issue, get back to me.
