<![CDATA[Copy a site : File Manager is missing from Tools->Configuration in copied site]]> https://forums.modx.com/thread/36156/copy-a-site-file-manager-is-missing-from-tools--configuration-in-copied-site#dis-post-522002
I have a strange problem in a MODX site.
The site is created on domain "aaa.com" and works fine.
The customers asked me to copy the complete site to
"bbb.com" and he would change the content himself.

This is what I did to copy the site:
- Copy over all file from aaa.com to bbb.com
- Change /manager/includes/config.inc.php to reflect the
new database login codes.
- Export the database of aaa.com
- Change in the database script the two references in
system-settings: rb_base_dir and filemanager_path
from aaa.com document_root to bbb.com document_root.
- Import the changed database script into the database
of bbb.com.

Of course I also changed things like names of the template
to reflect bbb.com, but this has nothing to do with the problem.

The problem is that certain functions are missing from the
manager interface:
- tool->configuration
The complete tab "File Manager" is missing !!
- tool->configuration
At the bottom of tab "Site" the section about TinyMCE
is missing.
- I cannot change the editor for a user to TinyMCE.
(This is probably the same as the second problem-item)

I checked all files in both sites and compared them.
Apart from the obvious files (config.inc.php) no other files
show any differences.
I reloaded the database from aaa.com again and got the same

Basically the question comes down to:
- What in MDOX decides to show the "File Manager" and the
"TinyMCE" in the Manager section.
- What do these two functionality items need which must be missing
in my site.

Thanks for your help.

I’ve just installed Modx into the directory public_html/contents on a site that already has quite a bit of data on it. The install runs cleanly, but once it’s finished I am unable to log into the manager. I keep getting an "Incorrect user name or password entered" error.

I have double-checked and even reset the admin password through MySql, re-uploaded the files and reinstalled several times, and even even deleted the Modx subdirectory and installed version, but I keep getting the same bug.

The manager login screen looks normal. If I enter an incorrect username or password, it tells me so (as expected). But when I enter the correct username/password it just shows the login screen again with no error message. No JS errors reported by firefox.

I checked the database, and the manager_log table indicates that I’ve logged in successfully.
I’ve tried multiple browsers and machines (PC/Mac) with the same result.
I’ve cleared my browser cache and MODx cache directory.
Checked server error logs - no problem there.

I’m at a complete loss - can anyone suggest what might be happening, or what else I can check?

Some stats:

Domain: cktheatreschool.co.uk
PHP: 5.3.6
MySQL: 5.1.56
Browser: Chrome, FF4/FF3, IE8 etc.
Server: VPS hosting, Cpanel v. 11.28.87, 2.6.18-194.8.1.el5.028stab070.5 kernel

Scenario: Started upgrading ModX to a new version - things went wrong. Restored the hosting to pre-upgrade using the image I took before I started work. Things worked okay for a bit but now no users can login correctly. The restore might be co-incidental but I figured it was worth mentioning.

At first I thought the passwords were bad so I used myPHPadmin to change them in the database, I even created a new user for testing purposes this way. The results are always the same.

Step 1. I enter my username
Step 2: I enter my RIGHT password, and
Step 3: I click on Login button, and nothing happens.
A) The user interface gets reloaded, and
B) The system pretends steps 1 through 3 have never happened.

Step 1. I enter my username
Step 2: I enter a WRONG password, and
Step 3: I click on Login button,
something happens.
A) The user interface gets reloaded, and
B) The system tells me, "The username or password you entered is incorrect. Please check the username, re-type the password, and try again."

This bug has been reported in Revolution (see here: http://bugs.modx.com/issues/4242) so that information might be relevant.

Any ideas what might be going on here...?

I have been trying to work out what the problem is and whether on not I should update, as well as how to update it, if that proves to be the solution.

The thing that is currently causing trouble is that TinyMCE has stopped appearing in the editor window and this is how my friend updates his site (he doesn’t know anything about code or html).

Currently TinyMCE ( is installed, as I recently discovered some of the older JavaScript editors can stop working (or appearing) in newer browsers. I don’t know if/how this plug-in can be upgraded by itself without upgrading the rest of the cms, as I want to create a local version of the site first to ensure that nothing inside the templates break when upgraded.

I’ve run into a bit of a problem, where I receive the above error when trying to access the manager.

I found this thread http://modxcms.com/forums/index.php?topic=18563.0 which seems to be the same issue, however changing the code as described did nothing.

The install is running in xampp, on a usb key. I had it running at work today fine and am now receiving this error on my PC at home, the site is accessible, just not the manager. Presumably it is to do with session/cookie information as stated in the other thread, however I’m not sure what to look for or how I can clear/reset it.

My install directory was removed after the initial installation, which complete without any errors, so it can’t actually be running any install or upgrade.

Any pointers would be great. Apologies if I’m going over old ground, but searching only brought up that previous thread.
