  • I had installed alpha6 on my dedicated server (26/11/2008) and I had some problems. I have uninstalled it now so I can’t go back and see but I’ll post a couple issues I had and wondered if anyone else had them.

    I was able to create a new doc but I could not click the save or cancel buttons, well they were clickable but they did not submit. I tried FF3, IE7, Chrome and Safari.

    I could not download any snippets via the package downloader for hours but eventually it worked.... half of the snippets didn’t install and said package was missing. I couldn’t download the files off the repo page as the links just redirected me to the page where you select core, add-ons and extensions?

    Far too many loading, saving, light boxes and ajax for my liking. When saving a simple option 3-4 boxes appear letting me know the info is being saved, is that normal? Like anything, things take time to get use too which is why I will be trying the beta version when it’s nearing full release.

    Server setup
    Linux Centos
    8 cpus, 8gb ram
    mysql (5.0.67-community)
    PHP Version 5.2.6

    • Alpha 6 installed!!!

      However, it is extremely slow.

      error_log shows:
      [Thu Nov 27 23:09:18 2008] [notice] child pid 24513 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
      [Thu Nov 27 23:09:19 2008] [notice] child pid 24515 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
      [Thu Nov 27 23:09:19 2008] [warn] (2)No such file or directory: Cannot reinit SSLMutex
      [Thu Nov 27 23:09:19 2008] [crit] (2)No such file or directory: mod_rewrite: could not init rewrite log lock in child
      [Thu Nov 27 23:09:23 2008] [warn] (2)No such file or directory: Cannot reinit SSLMutex

      Speed issues are more than likely being caused by the apache restart issue.

      Keep up the good work!

      • Carsten, sounds like you have PHP and/or MySQL configuration problems with Apache if it’s segfaulting. You’ll need to get that figured out. It’s running very fast on my configurations, including Mac (WAMP), PC (XAMPP) and CentOS.

        rossco: The download problems were with the WTF site and have been since fixed. I cannot reproduce any of your other issues.
        • It could well of happened during a busy time with the site or something... I can see that the new release is much faster in the manager than alpha1 that I tried so excellent job with that.

                I only get the segfaults with modx alphas ....
                That may be, but the segfaults are not caused by just executing PHP scripts (unless there is a relevant bug in PHP itself), but rather by code that interacts with Apache (i.e. mod_php, the MySQL client API, or another Apache module or extension).
                • I could be way off, but I used to have segfault issues with eaccelerator and IPB on my server... do you maybe have a caching software like EA or APC installed?
                  • update:

                    Installed on MAMP and alpha8 installed with no problems. What gives???


                    anybody have some demo data and pages? laugh
