  • Hi,

    I have uploaded a clean install of modx and get the following error when i go to the manager page:

    Warning: fopen(mysite/public_html/manager/media/style//login.html) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in mysite/public_html/manager/includes/accesscontrol.inc.php on line 129

    ...i get this error for lines 129 - 131.

    I can’t think waht it could be. When the install finishes it just goes to a page listing the install results and i’m sure previously it gives me an option to sign into the Manager...but nothing.

    Anyone have any ideas what this could be?
    I did find a previous post regarding this error but it went unresolved.

    • What version of MODx are you using? Looks like the theme isn’t being set correctly, which I think was an issue in some older MODx releases but has been fixed in the more recent MODx releases.

      Other than that, have you tried reuploading the files, it may be a case that some files got skipped or corrupted during the upload.

          • i wonder if anyone could take a look at the phpinfo that i have just uploaded to see if there is some kind of server configuration problem??
            I’m clutching at straws here and this may not solve the problem but i can’t think of anything else and i’ve never had an install problem with Modx before.
            I don’t want to add a link to the phpinfo if it contains sensitive info so if anyone knows about this stuff could you pm me?
            Otherwise perhaps there is some info that i could check myself?

            Thanks for any help.


            BTW - I’m using the latest Modx install, PHP5.2.5, MySQL5.0.51a

            • Ok janice171, this is the code line that’s starting the errors :-
              $tplFile = $base_path.'manager/media/style/'.$manager_theme.'/login.html';

              From your first post it would appear that the variable $manager_theme is not being set as was said above.

              This is set from the php extract() function, this may be failing but I can’t find any info on what php settings control this function.
              It may also be that the setting manager_theme in the table system_settings is not set, this should contain the name of one of the subdirs in the manager/media/style path, I think it defaults to MODxLight.
                Use MODx, or the cat gets it!

                • I’m getting exactly the same problem and I had MODX all working, I have re-installed and get the same error. I think the problem is that the SQL database still has old data in it.. I am about to clean out the SQL and see if that fixes the problem.. will let you know soon..
                  • When you say you’ve uploaded a clean install, does that mean you’re running the installer on a server after uploading modx and the installer. Also, please state the explicit version you’re using; if from the subversion repository please include the revision you checked out. "The latest" means a lot of things ranging from Revolution to the Evolution branch to 0963 RC2 to ... you get the idea.

                    Do you have other installs working succesfully? Are you using a custom manager theme? Do you have access to phpmyadmin?
