Inline Editing not working on remote site

Inline Editing not working on remote site

The PowerCMS works fine on the local host. However, once I migrated files and database to the live server, the inline editing and CKEditor does not work. The config.js and ckedit scripts are not being included in the head section. Interestingly these are absolute paths in the loacalhost installation (see screenshots from FireBug below) and those are the ones that are not included on the live server.
Not sure about the value of the cms_root variable…
First picture is the localhost (XAMPP), second picture is the remote host.
Note that basic editing works on the remote side from the admin_cms side but just source code edit, no ckedit shows up because the includes are also missing in these pages. Basic editing updates the DB and the changes show up in the pages. This tells me that the DB is basically working.

Any idea what the problem might be. I looked at the database and could not find any relevant entries that could explain that behavior… Also checked permissions.
The web site is www.kapcoaching.com

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Kind regards.

the paths should not use absolute paths, the paths should just be:

webassist/ckeditor/....

using absolute paths is the cause of the problem.

thanks for the post.
The absolute paths were my suspicion as well. However, those are generated by the WebAssist code. Nothing that I hard coded...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Marcello

This looks like an issue with the files becoming corrupted during the upload.

Instead of using the Dreamweaver File Upload, try using a 3rd party FTP client like File Zilla to upload the Power CMS Files to the site to prevent corruption during file upload.

Thank you very much for pointing out the issue. I just tested with 3rd party FTP and no problems. Uploaded again with Dreamweaver and it works as well...This must have been a temporary issue with Dreamweaver.

Really appreciate your help to get this sorted out!!!

Kind regards,

Marcello
