Support » Plugin: Gitium » Webhook not working on site in subfolder

  • When my wordpress install is in a subfolder the webhook shows a 500 error.
    the file wp-load.php is not found because the plugin tries to open it from the public_html folder, and not the subdirectory where the wordpress install is

    gitium-webhook.php line 21

    Hello @gbruynseels and thanks for reporting this issue.

    Can you please try to comment out the line 21 from gitium-webhook.php:

    and uncomment line 20 from the same file:

    And let us know if it works as expected in this way?

    If you still get an error, please get back to this thread and we’ll come up with another fix. I’ve also added a bug report for this in our GitHub repo here:


    Line 20 uses $_SERVER[‘DOCUMENT_ROOT’], causing the same problem as line 21.
    Line 21 would be better to get the public folder.

    A solution would be using a relative path starting from the __DIR__ or __FILE__ (dirname(__FILE__)) constant.

    For example:
    $wordpress_loader = __DIR__ . ‘/../../../wp-load.php’;
    $wordpress_loader = dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/../../../wp-load.php’;

    Even better would be using a WordPress endpoint.
