Following yesterdays post, here is another issue I found with XAMPP and Tikiwiki.
Synopsis: After installation of Tikiwiki 6.1 on a Vista machine using XAMPP Lite 1.7.3, The Tikiwiki groupware logo on top and bottom of the page were not displayed. When I tried to access the image through the browser (localhost/xampp/tiki-[version]/img/tiki/Tiki_WCG.png) I got a Server Error 500.
Workaround: This is definitely not a solution, but once again it is the .htaccess file that is screwing things up. Once it is removed from the localhost/xampp/tiki-[version]/img folder then the logos are displayed properly.
Synopsis: Getting Server Error 500’s trying to install Tikiwiki 6.1 on a Vista machine using XAMPP Lite 1.7.3
Specifics: The Tiki installer launch and I could enter all details about the database but when i clicked on the blue Install button I ended up with a Server Error 500.
Solution: Remove the .htaccess file from the folder containing the Tikiwiki code (e.i: c:/xamplite/htdocs/tiki-[version]/.htaccess)
Issues: You may need to put the .htaccess file back after the installation for security and functionality reasons – haven’t tried this though.
I recently noticed in my sats that a bunch of the 404 errors that were logged were most likely hacking attempts. So, since I didn’t want to keep going back to logs to figure out who did what, I threw together a little code that can be inserted into any html file that is stored on a host that supports php. The code provides a warning for the person trying to access a file that does not exist, and it also sends an e-mail to me when such a thing happens.
Following the last tutorial here is part two on how to embed adverts into your WordPress template code. This time I focus on where to put in the advert code on the page showing a single blog-posts.
