when i proceed from site options page i get Internal Server Error

Hi all,
  This portal look very good I've used E107 for a very long time and this seems to be all inclusive to what I'm looking for and run smother, except that when I try to commit any of the changes I make in the site options page.  Please give me some pointers.

Hi,

We won't be able to see your PHP-info as it requires an administrative login.

However, I suspect the problem here is caused by an Apache (the web server) module called mod_security, that is installed on some servers. It intercepts web requests to block 'suspicious' ones. As this option page contains settings for server paths, the request sent to the web server when submitting them looks similar to a hack attempt, and is blocked.

Please try renaming the ocPortal recommended.htaccess file to .htaccess. This file will attempt to disable mod_security, which is safe as ocPortal has it's own security filter.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
