Getting error when installing themes and mods [solved]
« on: March 22, 2012, 01:07:51 PM »
Hello,

I just installed fresh 2.0.2

Now when i try to install new themes (via theme installation) or mods (via package manager), i keep getting error 500

It doesnt even upload

CHMOD is 0755 on all important directories

When i refresh the page, i get back to forum but having actual error message: Session verification failed. Please try logging out and back in again, and then try again.

I am logged in

I dont understand what is wrong. Might be something to do with server.

Mods will install if i specify URL and not upload the zip package

Any ideas?

Thank you!

Cant understand what part of the permissions isnt correct. I have standard permissions set now for sure but still that error keeps coming

I suspect your host hasn't given you full ownership of the files on your site, mate.

Give 'em a nudge. ;) (It's a CHOWN thing, not CHMOD).

Whilst you're at it, ask them to disable mod_security, too. Coz that's bound to crop up, sometime. ;)

Sent them message to check permissions


Big thanks :)

Problem solved!

It was caused by firewall

Adding this into htaccess file fixed it:

<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off
</IfModule>
