[Resolved] [Plugin: XCloner – Backup and Restore] Broken
XCloner can also be accessed directly using the link to the plugin folder, like
If you still get a blank page there, i would advise enabling php errors on your server to see what the actual error is, what php version are you running?
PHP Version : 5.2.17
And yes you are right. Using the URL you gave me, I can access the XCloner Manager Authentication Area immediately. Thanks for your so quick support. And sorry for being a noob, lol
Note: with one more vote, the compatibility check of your WP.org plugin page is now green 😉
Sorry to be bothering but I need more help. Here is a screenshot of the page I get in the User Authentication tab of the Settings menu.
I can’t find nor a save button nor any way to save my changes. Do you have any idea of where I should look for it? Do I have to “Edit config file: cloner.config.php” manually?
If you are able to share that page url, please send me an email here http://www.xcloner.com/contact/ and i will take a look to see what the issue is, please include also the XCloner admin details
Regarding the frame error you got, could it be caused by a local firewall/ads blocker from your computer?
After more researches, I can see in Firebug that both Save and Cancel buttons are located in
div id="toolbar"but this toolbar is set to
style="display:none"(screenshot). I’ve tried with Firefox, Chrome and even IE8. I can see the 2 Logout and Cancel blue buttons on top-right in XCloner Main Menu from any browser. But there’s no more button when I click on Settings. Really strange. I’ve searched for a problem with my CSS styles, but the display property is set in the div element itself, not in any CSS file.
And yes, I can also see the 5 buttons of the top toolbar in View Backups area. Even more strange.
There’s no post in my blog because it’s a kind of template, a site configuration that I will copy to multiple blogs, so I’ll just have to change the theme for each one. I’ve sent you more details through your contact form.
Ok, the frame problem is simple to solve. For my blog’s security I’ve renamed the
/files/(using the WordPress
wp-config.phpfile). So I’ve edited xcloner.php to change the plugins path.
Maybe the future releases of your WordPress plugin could use the WP plugins_url() function to avoid this for other users but I don’t know if it is technically possible.
Anyway it seems to be not so important as it doesn’t fix the buttons problem. But at least now I can open XCloner from the WP Admin area.
Also found the
wp-content/directory in cloner.config.php. Replaced too and still doesn’t make the top right buttons appear in Settings. the only change is Temporary Path Check in main page shows
Invalid directory (/home/fenyx/domains/anydomain.com/public_html/administrator/backups)now. Why is it not finding the right plugins directory anymore? I don’t know. Above all I can’t try to fix anything without the Save button, as you already know.
I hope all your users aren’t causing you as much troubles as me, lol
The HTTP Headers monitored when clicking the Settings button in Main Menu: [link]
Not sure it could help by any way.
From what i have been able to check, the server seems to stop the script when it asks if the exec function is enabled, around line 2053->2056
$out = @exec(“ls -al”);
inside the wp-content/plugins/xcloner-backup-and-restore/admin.cloner.html.php file, check the XCloner Config, Info tab, you will see that page is incomplete
I would advise checking with your hosting support on this as the issue is generated by their server config, or simply remove that code, it should help.
I’ve tried to remove the part you’ve shown me so now it looks like this:
<?php $out = ""; $val = ($out != "")? "ENABLED":"<font color='red'>DISABLED</font>"; echo HTML_cloner::get_color($val, 'DISABLED'); ?>
But it still doesn’t work. Should I remove this entirely too?
I don’t understand why their server would add a
display:nonestyle to the DIV but I’ll follow your advice and will discuss it with my hosting support team.
Thanks a lot for your efforts to help me. I will let you know the result of the discussion with support…
By the way, Php open_basedir returns a red text:
I don’t know why it’s in red text but this path seems complicate too me. Couldn’t it be related?
The open_basedir is not related to this matter, we mark that with red in case users need to track down permission issues.
Regarding the display:none, that code is being enabled only when the page is fully loaded, so when the config page will display properly, that code should work
Confirmation by WeServIT.nl support team:
The exec command is disabled for security reasons. If we enable this, clients would be able to execute Linux commands on our servers.
So my only way seems to be a Linux VPS. More expensive but I will seriously think about it. I just think that my lack of skills could be a big problem. Still hesitating.
I’m really thankful for all your help and for the time you’ve been working on solving my problem. And for sure I will install XCloner as soon as it will be technically possible to me.
XCloner does not require the exec function to be enabled, it can work without it also, just that the code should not break when it asks for that function existence, so I think your hosting support still need to fix this!
Send them the code i sent you earlier so they can test it, the script should finish execution under normal conditions with or without exec function enabled!
