Hi, can the guestbook page be located outside the 'main' folder? i have done this and everything works bar the messages are not displayed on the page. They are sent to my email, and can be viewed via the admin login. I have checked and double checked all permissions & paths, but feel i must have missed something.
Thanks in advance.

I am developing a new site completely offline using a php enabled mac, FF as my browser. I have followed all the installation instructions but for some reason if I try and enter the admin section or add a comment FF does not recognize the .php files, and yet all my other .php files call fine. What am I doing wrong!

Thanks for any help!
Felicity

I just installed the software, and set the permissions per the read me. When I click the Add Comment, I get a HTTP 500 error, and when I refresh, I get "unrecognized call". The email notification goes through, and if I go to the guestbook.html page, the post is there. Have I missed something?

Thanks!

I've finished implementing the new version of guestbook code on my site. I'm amazed at how easy it was for me to cobble my many modifications into the new code.

Thanks again for some great code Andrea!

Thank you!! The guestbook is used for a funeral home, so there are several and I was afraid I was going to have to redo each of them. I think the original site owner is using a older version as there a far fewer files than your current version. Thank you again,you are a life saver!

Posted by AndreaFebruary 21, 2012 - 12:01 pm
Jenn, can you login to admin.html and check if the configuration is still correct after migration? You will find the password to login in include/conf.php

Posted by AndreaFebruary 21, 2012 - 11:59 am
Jenn, the guestbook html file itself needs to be writable (666 permission)

I am hoping someone may be able to help. We recently took over a website from another company, PHP Guestbook was being used in the site. Now that I have the site transferred onto our server the guestbooks are not working. I uploaded all of the files that they had with-in the original FTP and get the error, "The Guestbook html file is not writable! Check the file permissions and try again. Good Luck." Do I just need to reset the permissions to be:

“posts” folder - 777 or 755
main folder - 777 or 755
“verify.png” - 666
“include/conf.php” - 666
“guestbook.html” - 666

Or is this something that has to be done with-in the administrative panel?

Thank you,
Jenn

Kristian, yes indeed, please contact me by e-mail.

Kristian, are you positive that both include/default_conf.php and include/global_conf.php are chmoded to 666? Sorry to ask again, however I am puzzled by this "you dont' have permission to access /wcs/php_guestbook.php", since the mere display of the admin section indeed requires that this file is accessed.

Posted by DennisFebruary 20, 2012 - 03:51 pmthun3905@earthlink.net
I had a similar problem. The install instruction imply that ALL php files need per missions of 644. When I copied mine up to the server I found I had to change most of them to 644. Hope that helps I really am a novice with this.

Posted by KristianFebruary 20, 2012 - 03:39 pm
Andrea,

Thanks for the quick response. I am on a UNIX server.

Tried permission 777 and 775 for wcs and gbooks. the include files are at 666.

does it matter that to access it must go to www.kristiankeith.com/kristiankeith/wcs/php_guestbook.php? do I need to add .. before link to the /kristiankeith/wcs/php_guestbook.php?

Posted by AndreaFebruary 20, 2012 - 03:11 pm
JFK and Kristian, please check that the config files have a 666 permission and the posts folder a 755 or 777 permission.

Posted by kristianFebruary 20, 2012 - 03:08 pm
actually this is my exact error:

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /kristiankeith/wcs/php_guestbook.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Posted by KristianFebruary 20, 2012 - 02:43 pm
I am running into same error as JFK

Loaded all and set permissions. Can access admin.html and Configure Guestbook settings - but as soon as I Save it tells me

You don't have permission to access /Comments/php_guestbook.php on this server.

Sorry I've been using http://thundering-third.org/guestbook/guestbooknew.html

Andrea
Everything is working as advertised. Then I tired to customize the html code for guestbook.html and the smallest change causes
some of the buttons over the this text area to quit working.
see http://Thundering-Third.org/guestbook/guestbook.html
I also tried numerous changes like just the title and still have the same results? Any ideas?

Posted by DennisFebruary 18, 2012 - 05:12 pmthun3905@earthlink.net
ok will do that.
btw Thanks Again

Posted by AndreaFebruary 18, 2012 - 05:09 pm
I wonder if you are missing some files. May I suggest you clear up everything and start from scratch. Just:
- unzip
- upload
- set permissions

Then check you admin area, it does not look good at all right now.

Can you post a private message with the address so that I can login and see what you have in admin.

Posted by DennisFebruary 18, 2012 - 04:53 pmthun3905@earthlink.net
No it's a unix server.
I just followed the directions where it tells you to go to log into to admin.html and configure guestbook. It keeps giving me a timeout when I try to save changes also.
I tried a sample guestbook post but it told me I exceeded number of lines on a one sentence test.

Posted by AndreaFebruary 18, 2012 - 04:41 pm
Dennis you should not see this in admin/configuration. There is something wrong in your installation. Are you on a windows server?
