Title: Unable to load Themes/default/index.template.php!
Post by: Heartlander on May 17, 2008, 04:04:18 PM
Messed around trying to get a youtube mod to work, and somehow managed to screw up the database.

Pointing to anywhere on the site produces:

Unable to load Themes/default/index.template.php!

I replaced that file, ran repair_settings.php to double check everything.....
Still can't access site.
Had my host double check that the themes folder is set to 777.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
My board is dead.

Trying to directly access file in guestion (http://www.heartlandoutdoorsman.com/smf/Themes/default/index.template.php) reveals that permission doesn't allow accesssing it. Try using 755 instead of 777 some servers may block access to files with chmod 777.

Ugggh.
My host is basically a friend that hosts it on his server for me, and isn't always accessible.
My assumption is that he has something running that doesn't allow me to set permissions on my own via FTP.
The reason I suspect it is that no FTP client I use seems to set the permissions after I change them.

Hi,
I just encountered the same thing when moving servers, still no luck with changing permissions as above.

May not apply, however in my case when I uploaded with wsftp, for some reason it changed the Themes folder to themes notice the small "t".
Have no idea why as all other folders , files seemed to be named correctly.

Just something else to check if you have this problem.

Heartlander,

Where you able to resolve this?
The above message simply states it can't locate the file. Since it is a default theme file, I would assume the Themes directory is missing, renamed or not completely there.

You can use the repair_settings.php to make sure the path is correct.
