Hi GM!!

I almost popped into one of your threads at the SMF forum (just to say hi), but would have taken it off topic.

EDIT NOTE: Suggested changes to .htaccess to resolve problem with xtdratings did not work, deleted to keep thread cleaner

Let me know GM, if this works, I need to make changes to the .htaccess in this thread for standard SEF.

Hi Gram,
Feel free to pop in there anytime ;) I tried commenting out both the lines, SMF continued to work fine, but xtdratings still didn't work. I think tried replacing the 2 lines with what you posted, SMF continued to work, but xtdratings still didn't work.
 
Is this the kind of thing that falls on being the component writers responsibility or an SEF problem? My regex is lacking as I haven't worked with regular expressions since I graduated a few years ago. Your explanations helped quite a bit, thanks!

This is just a guess, but I would bet that facilforms, or xtdratings is creating their own SEF URLS when they find that SEF is active.  I'm basing that on the fact that Apache can't find the file or directory being called, so assuming its some kind of special URL (we know the URL works when you disable the 404 section of sef.php).  It is just not being recognized by sef.php.  Before 1.07, the sef.php did not have that 404 section, and a special sef url might have worked (even though sef.php didn't know what it was).

If they were using a normal cannonical url for that frame (we know the link in the code to that frame works, only problem is when the frame goes active and tries to fill in the content) it would work.  Cannonical URLS work with all SEF's as long as the file in the URL actually exists.  I don't think that frame needs to be sef'd....

Since this did not work, I am going to delete most of my post to you to keep this thread clean.  Will wait until you acknowledge so you can copy any of it out that you want to keep.

I pop into SMF's forum once in a while.  I am working on a special integration package for it and hoping they explain the new integration stuff for RC2 soon.

The last change didn't work. I'll keep messing with it though. Ortiso would know more about the new hooks since he has been using them for  his bridge.

Go ahead and clean things up, I'd delete my posts, but I don't have that access here ;)

XTDRatings and FacileForms gives Internal Error msg in frontend

Postby averan » Thu Feb 02, 2006 8:34 pm

Running FacileForms 1.4.4 on Joomla 1.0.5

tried all the suggested fixes, SEF=off, livesite config changed back and forth to include www. or not, include livesite set to NO and YES.

finally got backend admin to show after disabling "show in IFrame" in the form settings in FacileForms.

other FacileForms placed in modules also give Internal Server Error msg in frontend.

my server logs show this:

"Premature end of script headers: /home/goodnews/public_html/joomla/components/com_facileforms/facileforms.frame.php"
and
"error: directory is writable by others: (/home/goodnews/public_html/joomla/components/com_facileforms)"

the latter is not correct, i checked permissions for the folder and they are definitely set to 755.

here's the live site i'm working on: http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/joomla
try this page to see an eg of XTDR NOT working: http://goodnewsnetwork.org/joomla/index ... 6&Itemid=2

thanks to anyone who can help us! (God?)

Problem with Facileforms identified..

Postby gram » Fri Feb 03, 2006 5:19 pm

I did a little testing with Facileforms, and XtdRatings.

I found the problem, and it is in Facileforms.

Facileforms will run in a frame, and in that frame it emulates Mambo/Joomla. The file it uses is /components/com_facileforms/facileforms.frame.php .

I set up a test, where I added a simple print statement to the top of this file.  I wanted to see if the .htaccess was failing and rewriting a url bound for this file.  The print statement displayed!  Now we know that .htaccess was not rewriting requests for this file.  The 404 error was still there below the new print statement, so did a little more investigating.  I added a new print statement and started moving down through the file and re-testing.  As soon as I got below some Mambo/Joomla sef file includes, the print statement stopped displaying.  So with a little reading in Joomla's sef.php, here is what I see happening:

The facilforms.frame.php file needs the breakdown of the params from a sef'd url, so it will include the standard Mambo/Joomla sef files to get the job done:

Code: Select all

if (file_exists('components/com_sef/sef.php')) {
   require_once('components/com_sef/sef.php');
} else {
   require_once('includes/sef.php');}


Now the code in sef has become part of this script, and is looking for either '/content/' or '/component/' in the inbound url  (which is http://your_domain.com/components/com_f ... e.php?.....).

If it doesn't find it, sef then checks to see if the URL has either 'index.php', 'index2.php', or '/?' in it.  If it does not, sef.php will include the /templates/404.php file (now used for 404 errors) and EXITS THE SCRIPT.  The remainder of facileforms.frame.php NEVER  GETS EXECUTED, and the only thing displayed in that frame is the contents of 404.php.

This is why GooseMoose got his xtdratings to work by commenting out the code in sef.php that would include the 404.php and exit the script.

The folks at facileforms will need to find a solution for this, to get it working properly with SEF and 1.07.

I am trying to follow this the best that I can but without much knowledge about .htaccess I sometimes think I understand from reading all the post but sometimes scratches my head..  :-\

Gram, from your last post, it looks like Facileforms will stay broken even with the suggested .htaccess contents on the first post and Joomla! 1.0.7 SEF enabled. Is this correct?

Thanks.

@Redbox,

I would be happy to assist if you have questions.  Please post them in this thread for the benefit of other users here.

Facileforms will continue to have problems whenever they utilize thier internal frame script to display data (like xtended ratings).  Hopefully they will have a solution soon.  It does not look like a major fix to me, but I don't know a lot about thier scripts.  One of the participants in this thread advised that he had alerted the developers of facilforms to the problem.

@Predator

Thats a good idea.  I will see if I can come up with a better set of implemenation instructions for new .htaccess users.

To fix facile forms do two things:
1. In admin panel go to Facile Forms -> Manage Backend Menus and make sure nothing has "Run in IFrame" checked.
2. Also in admin panel go to Facile Forms -> Configuration and set "Run backend preview in a frame" to no.

For some reason the IFrame is where the code was bad, so removing the IFrame fixed the problem. Plus, it looks a hell of a lot better without the IFrame :)

Thanks Gram and Goosemoose.

@Goosemoose, I did what you suggested and now at least the facile forms will show up when I click on 'Manage Forms' but I still get a 404 error when I try to show it on a page.

Thanks.

Ok, mine might be working because of the fix I posted a few posts back about commenting out part of the sef.php. Not the cleanest thing, but at least it will work for now.

I went back and found where you commented out in sef.php. I tried it and all my pages went blank. Almost fell from my chair.  :laugh: Anyway, I uncommented that line and now all my pages are back but still without Facile Forms working.

Anyway, I know this is about .htaccess and it somehow went to xdratings and facileforms so if I shouldn't be asking anymore questions on here regarding facileforms, please let me know. It wasn't my intention to hijack the thread. Sorry...

Ok.. I re-tried commenting out the stuff on sef.php as you suggested Goosemoose and it looks like I have to comment out all the lines that you posted. I only saw a // on the first line so I thought you only have to do it for that first line. I did this and it looks like that gave a temporary workaround to FacileForms. I am nervous though since I am not sure what I am commenting out.

Code: Select all

//      if ($juri != "" && !eregi( "index\.php", $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] ) && !eregi( "index2\.php", $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] ) && !eregi( "/\?", $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] ) ) {
//         header( 'HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found' );
//         require_once( $mosConfig_absolute_path . '/templates/404.php' );
//         exit( 404 );
//      }


Thanks.

@Redbox,

You are commenting out Joomla 1.07's 404 capabilities.  IF the inbound request does not match the Joomla SEF conventions, Joomla will throw out a 404 error page for that request.

If you are using the new .htaccess posted in this thread, it will be of little consequence.  It will have to be formatted fairly correctly just to get to this point.

I wouldn't recommend commenting that section out if you keep the original Joomla .htaccess.

Ok. Thanks for the explanation. Now I can sit back and not worry about it exploding.  :P In between all my tries, I had actually reverted the .htaccess to the original that came with 1.0.7. I'll change it to this one then.

Thanks again!

If you are going to try this, I would suggest backing your old .htaccess file up (obviously), but I think I nailed it.

Consistant 404s, no more potential loops for nonexistant files, and no more Joomla instantiation (even with 1.07 and its 404 page) for these non-existant files.

In direct consultation with Steve, his proposal (as outlined in first post of this thread) is being utilized directly into 1.0.8 - with only minor aesthetic changes.


I'd like to publicly acknowledge Steve for his outstanding work on this matter.
He provided a succinct response and timely solution to an obvious problem.  He meticilously researched the issues at hand and put together a detailed specification of the problem, issues and more importantly provided a solution.  I also thank all the people who provided feedback on his work - helping assist in putting together the solution.

It is only through such strong community participation & involvement in this parthenership that Joomla! will be successful.


Kudos and thanks to Steve!!

I whole-heartedly agree.  Many people have provided good insight and discussion and it was Gram who was instrumental in making this reality come true.

Gram, you are a model citizen for us all.  Your concise detailed explanations even make amateurs like myself feel that I'm smart (by taking a bunch of complicated stuff and putting it in lay terms).

Keep up the amazing work  :D

Re: [UTILIZED FOR 1.0.8] new .htaccess gives proper 404s

Postby WebJIVE » Mon Feb 20, 2006 4:43 pm

I have been testing this for about 2-3 weeks with zero problems.  Attached is what I used (for those interested in having a redirect on their site from yourdomain.com to http://www.yourdomain.com and upping the PHP memory limit).

Re: [UTILIZED FOR 1.0.8] new .htaccess gives proper 404s

Postby silexian » Tue Feb 28, 2006 7:29 am

hello all

I'm a bit lost with the new htaccess.

i have a directory in the root that runs joomla  (/home/domain1/public_html/joomla)
and i have the domain pointing to /home/domain1/public_html

which lines do i have to choose in the .htacces to have my domain running well ?
(http://www.domain1.com instead of http://www.domain1.com/joomla ? i don't want to see th /joomla in the URL)
