1and1 finally gave the correct permission setting steps but to no avail. I could not change anything. I believe the problem is with the server and have told them so. (Failure with ftp method is supposed to provide a clue in the ftp log but the log is empty.

1and1 sent me new directions for changing permissions, which of course did not react as claimed. However, I was able to change the main file to 777, Test message results now show that posts.txt and gbook_log.txt (which I created)are being populated, but the moderation mode comments do not get through to the guestbook page when approved, and the reserved name comment also does not get through to the guestbook page. Troubleshooting is starting but if you have any shortcut ideas they would be appreciated.

Well, 1and1 decided it would be easy for me to change the permissions and directed me to a section on my Control Panel which does not have a feature (Webspace Explorer) that they claimed it did. Nevermind, FileZilla is the recommended alternative but when I used it all the attempts came back as "command not understood". Hence, three failures from techniques that should have worked (FTP and Dreamweaver are the other two). So, I have asked them to try and change the five folders/files themselves if it's so easy. I need this software to get rid of a harrasser. Thanks for hanging in there Andrea.

My site host, 1and1, is pondering the notion of allowing me to set permissions.

Posted by AndreaJuly 24, 2013 - 02:31 pm
CY the software might not be for you then, you will have lots of issues if you cannot grant proper permission because of your server settings. You can create manually posts.txt and log.txt, however can you then grant 666 permission? Maybe so. However I suggest you consider a different software or change hosting provider.

Posted by C PottsJuly 24, 2013 - 01:56 pm
Server Posts file folder has only index.html file. Effort to change permission results in failure. Have to check ftp log - wherever that is. Permissions failed on conf.php file as well. :-(

Posted by AndreaJuly 24, 2013 - 01:11 pm
CY double was a posts file created inside the posts folder? In the posts folder you should see a posts.txt file and a log.txt file. If they are not there then there might be a problem with the posts folder permission. Should be 755 or 777 depending on the server.

Posted by C PottsJuly 24, 2013 - 12:34 pm
Ok, I crossed the first hurdle by editing the conf.php file directly. However, when I write a comment and add it, the notation email is sent to me and I go to the Messages waiting for approval page but there isn't message there. Help!

Posted by AndreaJuly 23, 2013 - 11:39 pm
Cy double check the permissions of your configuration file, should be writable (666)

Posted by Cy PottsJuly 23, 2013 - 05:38 pm
I am using your enhanced version and for the life of me cannot change any of the variables on the configuration page, not even the password by itself. I am doing the change online. What am I missing?

Hiya, nice guestbook. I get the 500 error when using internet explorer, which other people have commented on here. The guestbook works fine in other browsers.

So, are you going to post this example even though I used a fake email?

Nick your first point can be addressed by editing the php code, no easy configuration tweak to do it. Requires some work.

Concerning your second point, slashes are normally nicely accepted on posts. Do you get the same problem on this guestbook here? Should be the same as yours. Unable to replicate the problem for now.

Hello Andrea,
One more thing. When I try to post a comment on the guestbook. It shows an error and I have figured it out that is because I am including a "/" in the content. Like in "e/mail".
When I delete the "/" everything is posted correctly.
This is however becoming anoying. Is there a way to configure the guestbook to accept the "/" and all other type of characters?
Thanks a lot!

Hello Andrea,
I am forwarding every comment on my guestbook to my e/mail address, however when I opne the e/mail the following fields are displayed:
email: / post_id: / gbid: / name: / message: / date: / ip_addr: / show_email: / show_message:
Is there a way to show in the e/mail only:
name: / message: / date:
Please, advise if possible and how to make it work.
Congratulations! for your guestbook.
I love it! :-)
