  • I tried to install 0.9.7 from svn yesterday in order to test it out and maybe find a way to contribute. The build and installation seemed to go smooth, but I ended up with the following problems:
    - Browsing to the new site just brings up a blank page
    - The manager login page shows up ok but after authenticating the manager interface fails to load properly, I get a white empty page. Viewing the source shows that the javascript libraries get included and something is executed but nothing actually shows up, Firebug lists a few js errors.

    Was it better to install 0.9.6 and then do an upgrade to 0.9.7? How do I approach solving/debugging this?
    • - The new site will be blank, because you haven’t created any documents
      - What JS errors are there? What browser are you using? OS? Do you have the latest SVN?
      - Turn off Firebug for 0.9.7. Trust us. FB is a memory hog.

      • I’m using revision 3329 which should be latest.

        Looking closer at the errors it seems that I was missing one js file:
        /manager/templates/default/js/tree/modx.tree.js

        I copied it from:
        /manager/templates/default/js/ui/modx.tree.js
        And now things seem to work properly.

        This might need fixing though
        • That reference was fixed in r3328...you might want to update again. What file did that occur in?

          • I seem to have a similar problem with the latest build (3330), except install goes fine, but when I get to the manager login I just can’t login : I see a blink of a "Please Wait... loading" window but it just remains on the manager login page. Occuring with both FF 2.0.0.11 and Safari 3.0.4.

            I have FireBug disabled, checked the config file, cleared cookies, cache and session data but to no avail...
            Latest 0.9.7 I had up and running was 3249 and I had no issues...

            Running MAMP Pro 1.7.1 / OS X 10.5.1 with PHP 5.2.5 and Apache 2.0.59

            Is 3330 broken or is it me ?

              David, I can’t seem to replicate your problem on OS X.

              Could you tell me if there’s any JS errors occuring in FIrefox? If so, what? And if there are none, could you paste the page source for the broken manager?

              • I have checked the error console : no JS errors in FF, just a few warnings "FIREBUG WARNING: TypeError: FirebugContext has no properties" which is strange since FireBug is disabled huh

                Here is a zip of the manager page source code

                  I can’t see why things wouldn’t work...the only thing that seems odd in the file is this line:

                  <script src="connectors/lang.js.php" type="text/javascript"></script>


                  Which should be pointing to something like

                  <script src="/modx/connectors/lang.js.php" type="text/javascript"></script>


                  The Smarty var there is {$_config.connectors_url}, which should be set in your modx config...check your config.core.php files, and if not, try running setup/ again.
