MDB2 Error

MDB2 Error

I had an existing Power CMS solution installed on a server for a client. I have had to move the Database and the site to a new server.

I exported the Power CMS Database and imported it into the new server. I have also gone through the site and replaced all the old Power CMS code with Power CMS Builder code.

Everything is working well except for the admin backend. As such I blew away the old power CMS backend and let Power CMS Builder upload all its files and went through the whole install process again.

As such everything works fine except for the following. When I try to insert an image I get the following error.

alert("MDB2 Error: no such table\nSELECT extension, plugin FROM kfm_plugin_extensions WHERE user_id=1")

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks,
Martin

I have solved my own problem. Here is what I did.

I noticed that compared to other clients i have installed this for. I was missing a table, kfm_plugin_extensions.

I was able to export this table from another CMS database and import it into this database.

Now when I went to add an image it came up with "please wait loading" and the "Kae's file manager" header.

I remembered from a previous support assist that this error was due to a script issue in the kfm/index.php page.

showthread.php?t=22454

I used this fix and changed the script in the index page and it now works!

I just thought I would share my experience with others!

Cheers,
Martin

One issue I am still seeing is not related to images, it is a problem making text hyperlinks. When I highlight some text and hit the link button and choose browse the server, I am stuck in the images folder??

All would be well if I could go up one directory, but I cannot see any way to do this. Any ideas on what could be causing this issue?

Thanks again!

By default, image uploads and links will start in the "files" folder.


you can change this by editing the wa_settings table of the power cms database , you can set it to use the site root by changing the value column of the Image Upload Folder setting from files to be blank.

Hi Jason,

I tried what you suggested, I went to the WA Settings table and changed the "image upload folder to just a slash "/". Leaving it blank produced an error.

Now I can see .html file links but I cannot see any PHP files?? Any ideas?

Thanks again!

in the webassist/kfm/initialize.php file, change the following line:

php:
$kfm->defaultSetting('banned_extensions',array('asp','cfm','cgi','php','php3','php4','php5','phtm','pl','sh','shtm','shtml'));




to:

php:
$kfm->defaultSetting('banned_extensions',array('asp','cfm','cgi','pl','sh','shtm','shtml'));

Excellent! Thank you!

Perhaps in future it might be a helpful thing to be able set these variables from within the Web Assist UI? Maybe a different table field that controls how users browse for images versus links?

Thanks,
Martin
