Admin Links Redirecting to home page
« on: May 01, 2012, 05:43:28 PM »
I just recently upgraded from SMF 1.1.16 to 2.0.2 via the webinstall.php.  The installation seemed to go through fine, no errors. When I log in as admin I can or cant access the following

Can Access
-Core Features
- Languages...but not its settings
-Themes and Layout...but not member options

Cant access without being redirected
-Features and Options
-Security and Moderation
-Server Settings
-Current Theme
-Modification Settings




Ive tried Permission settings but to no avail, Ive tried the string fix in the querystring.php , nothing worked

My forums are at http://forums.thrutheuprights.com/index.php [nofollow]

Im even using the default theme.

Can anyone help?







Version Information:
Forum version: SMF 2.0.2 (more detailed)
Current SMF version: SMF 2.0.2
GD version: bundled (2.0.34 compatible)
MySQL version: 5.0.95-community-log
eAccelerator: 0.9.6.1
PHP: 5.3.6
Server version: Apache/2.0.64 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.64 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 mod_antiloris/0.4

Welcome to SMF,
This was asked not too long ago: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=475292.0

Also who are you hosting with? This appears to be part of the problem according to the last user who had this issue.

Did you take a look at this thread: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=475292.0 and try the steps listed in there?

Yea, I've reviewed that post , then went to
 http://dev.simplemachines.org/mantis/view.php?id=2669

I read some fragmented replies but not anything I understood

I did try to edit my querystring.php. and replaced the parse_string line but it doesnt appear to have helped , not sure if that's what I was supposed to do.

Have you tried installing SMF not through webinstall.php? Are you sure you checked the file permissions?

That string would be included in the url of the admin page that got redirected?

What modifications do you have installed and was is the most recent one specifically?

*Thanks Flamer for the tip there.

NCHAT is really the only different mod I installed since the SMF upgrade, but I have had it inactive a few times to try with it off, lemme uninstall it.

Here are others installed

Personally, I don't see a mod that stands out in that list that would seem to cause those symptoms. Flamer if you want to chime in, it would be greatly appreciated.

the query string, request variables, and session management.  It contains
the following functions:

void cleanRequest()
- cleans the request variables (ENV, GET, POST, COOKIE, SERVER) and
  makes sure the query string was parsed correctly.
- handles the URLs passed by the queryless URLs option.
- makes sure, regardless of php.ini, everything has slashes.
- sets up $board, $topic, and $scripturl and $_REQUEST['start'].
- determines, or rather tries to determine, the client's IP.

array escapestring__recursive(array var)
- returns the var, as an array or string, with escapes as required.
- importantly escapes all keys and values!
- calls itself recursively if necessary.

array htmlspecialchars__recursive(array var)
- adds entities (&quot;, &lt;, &gt;) to the array or string var.
- importantly, does not effect keys, only values.
- calls itself recursively if necessary.

array urldecode__recursive(array var)
- takes off url encoding (%20, etc.) from the array or string var.
- importantly, does it to keys too!
- calls itself recursively if there are any sub arrays.

array unescapestring__recursive(array var)
- unescapes, recursively, from the array or string var.
- effects both keys and values of arrays.
- calls itself recursively to handle arrays of arrays.

array stripslashes__recursive(array var)
- removes slashes, recursively, from the array or string var.
- effects both keys and values of arrays.
- calls itself recursively to handle arrays of arrays.

array htmltrim__recursive(array var)
- trims a string or an the var array using html characters as well.
- does not effect keys, only values.
- may call itself recursively if needed.

string cleanXml(string var)
- removes invalid XML characters to assure the input string being
  parsed properly.

string ob_sessrewrite(string buffer)
- rewrites the URLs outputted to have the session ID, if the user
  is not accepting cookies and is using a standard web browser.
- handles rewriting URLs for the queryless URLs option.
- can be turned off entirely by setting $scripturl to an empty
  string, ''. (it wouldn't work well like that anyway.)
- because of bugs in certain builds of PHP, does not function in

Your best fix currently would be to use the Large upgrade and upgrade once more as it does seem to be a broken upgrade. http://download.simplemachines.org/)

- Download a copy of Large Upgrade.
- Upload all the files on the server and replace them.
- Run the upgrade.php from yourwebsite.com/upgrade.php
- Follow the steps and once done, try again.

No you wouldn't. All you will loose are the installed modifications. You have already lost them while you upgraded anyhow. :) So, that shouldn't be a problem.

However, I would suggest grabbing a copy of your database just for as a backup before continuing unless you already have a backup while you were at 1.1.x.

Should I install the whole smf_2_0_2_upgrade contents individually, just replacing on file at a time. or should I extract them while they are zipped in the server. currently the zip file is in the packages folder

You can use FTP and replace all the files through that, or you can upload the file on to your server, unzip it and then replace it. Anything would be fine.

You should always back up your database regardless of the type of work you are doing on your forum just in case.

I'd like to chime in real quick as I'm helping scsouders with this issue.

I downloaded a backup of the forum and installed it on a computer running a LAMP server.  After installing fresh from the website, I did an import and everything works as it should.  I click on the admin interface and they redirect me to the correct location.  So it is working.

NO NO I meant I had it working on a different server so I'm wondering what server setting it could be.  If you think that  might be the case.

Sorry didn't mean to sound confusing. :-(

Oh, sorry about that. *Topic marked as unsolved. It now goes back to my initial hunch of it being a host/serverside issue.

Yea, all was fine when we had 1.1.16 installed, no admin issues, wasn't until the move to 2.0.2 , thats when I had issues. Could it be a permission stetting im missing..Im using 755 for directories and 644 for files.

Yes, it is likely to be a permissions issue. I highly doubt if a host can cause such an issue.

If you do not mind, feel free to send me the following details via PM and I will look into it personally for you:
- Your Hosting Control Panel Link.
- Your SMF Admin username/password.
- FTP access details.

Yes I'm having the same issue. Some admin links work and some are going straight to the frontpage.

Didn't check all my file permission. What CHMOD for all the files?
