New configuration.php file causes malfunctioning Browse Server (upoad image) function

I recently downloaded and installed the security fix for Power CMS 2.x. As instructed, I unzipped and replaced the new configuration.php file into the folder webassist/kfm/ My issue now is that with this new php file, when I try to Browse Server to look for and/or upload any images, my image browser in the editor no longer works. I just get a blank new popup window with no content or text. Please advise.

Yes, the directory structure is all screwed up in the fixes (which I applied to my sites before realising). Two of my clients were a bit miffed.

[Warning: require_once(../../../../Connections/PowerCMSConnection.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream:
No such file or directory in /home/fairlieh/public_html/cms/webassist/kfm/configuration.php on line 1]

My CMS installations are their own directory in the site root called 'cms'. The original correct include paths were:

<?php require_once( "../../Connections/PowerCMSConnection.php" ); ?>
<?php require_once( "../../WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); ?>
<?php require_once( "../../WA_Globals/WA_Globals.php" ); ?>
<?php require_once( "../../WA_CMS/library.php" ); ?>

Your 'fix' has these as:

<?php require_once( "../../../../Connections/PowerCMSConnection.php" ); ?>
<?php require_once( "../../../WA_Globals.php" ); ?>
<?php require_once( "../../../../webassist/framework/library.php" ); ?>
<?php require_once( "../../../../WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); ?>

The fix also contains lines such as:

$absLink = realpath("../../../../");

and:

$kfm_userfiles_address = '../../../../'.$WAGLOBAL_images_folder;

I don't know if these are correct for my installation.

I am certainly not up for making hand edits to the new fix in my sites, so I have reverted to the old un-fixed version, and I will need WA to provide a fresh fix for each version of PowerCMS installs where the files and folders are in their own directory in the site root.

This shouldn't be happening.

I also have the same issue / warning with directory structure when I click on Browse Server having installed the new security fix.

In addition if it helps, having sign in to the CMS OK, select a file from the home page or directly on the website, if I then click on edit I get the following Windows Internet Explorer warning:

Stop running this script?

A script on this page is causing internet explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive.

Yes NO

Having selected Yes to stop running the script I am able to edit text but unable to browse the server to an image etc.

In my case, the fault was because I had previously tried to update PCMS2 to CMS Builder, which does not require a security fix.

If nothing else, I am at least the first to admit that I am an imbecile*.

Thanks and apologies. The haughtier they pronounce, the more humiliated they fall.

Same Issue

Yeah I'm having this issue too which effects multiple sites. None of my clients who currently have Power CMS can upload any images following the security patch.

Urgent help required please.

Thanks in advance

Gary
