Re: Fatal error

A casualty of recent Textpattern architectural changes, I’m afraid. Hack the plugin for now. Look for the _cbe_fa_auth() function and on line 680ish add:

include txpath.'/lib/txplib_admin.php';

That should fix it (untested).

EDIT: I raised an issue on the plugin’s repo.

Re: Fatal error

Sadly, no Bingo noises

Textpattern version: 4.8.5 (fe6df0487f1a92cf562eafddc1260096)
PHP Version 7.3.27

And the same error when I re-enable cbe_frontauth (cbe_frontauth 0.9.7) …but I can’t see this from within my website, and have to directly manipulate the plugin status from PHPMyAdmin, which would seem to suggest a bigger problem

Re: Fatal error

Sorry, I missed your second piece of magic, and shall hack the plugin now… only I can’t see it??

Any idea what other wheels might have fallen off that I can’t see the installed plugin listed anymore

Re: Fatal error

Hmmm, that is worrying. Does Diagnostics say everything else is tickety boo? And is your /texptattern/plugins directory writable?

Re: Fatal error

Pre-flight check All checks passed
textpattern directory has permission 705

And when you say “hmm worrying” I know it’s bad

Oh, hang on you said ‘plugins’ directory: 705 also

The only active plugins are these:

smd_calendar-0.53
smd_gallery-0.62
smd_lib-0.36

What else should I try to even see the ‘Plugins’ listed (This is from diagnostics)

Re: Fatal error

Can’t say I’ve ever seen 705 as a permission strategy on a host: that’s a new one! Is there anything in that /textpattern/plugins directory? You should have a subdir per plugin installed.

Switch that to 755.

Makes no sense that everyone has higher access privileges (5) than the owner group (0).

Re: Fatal error

‘Textpattern’ now has 755

(Thank you, that was going to be my next question)

…and plugins directory the same? (all subdirectories are there per plugin, and at 705)

And do I hack the plugin and leave the original txp_auth.php in place, too?

// -------------------------------------------------------------------
function cbe_frontauth( $atts, $thing = null )
{
    include txpath.'/lib/txplib_admin.php';
    include_once( txpath.'/include/txp_auth.php' ) ;

Yep. Just give that a go and see if things pick up. When you edit+save a plugin from the Admin>Plugins panel, it should write to that dir and you’ll see the relevant datestamps change if the server manages it.

Re: Fatal error

Well, I get a different error now… so sort of progress
(but still can’t see my plugins listed within textpattern itself)

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare send_account_activation()

Oops, I meant:

include_once(txpath.'/include/txp_admin.php');

Sorry.

Re: Fatal error

Thank you Stef…

Alas, that revised improvement to Claire’s plugin takes me back to my original error, and I can’t help but think something else is seriously wrong. Why (O-Y-O-Y) would installed plugins not be listed within Textpattern itself (I can see them in the database and also the sub directories on the web server–now with the correct permissions), but on Textpattern itself there are (apparently) none installed :-(
