Problems with PowerCMS

Problems with PowerCMS

I have just installed Design Extensions and cannot get PowerCMS to work. I had previously installed this extension and it worked. However since migrating to CC 2017 it doesn't. If you visit and go to About us you will see error messages that say the files cannot be found. In an attempt to rectify this I went to your extension menu list (in Dreamweaver) and under CMS I found three entries

a. Add content to PowerCMS
b. Insert content to PowerCMS
c. Reload content

None of these seem to do anything and I no longer see the "set up" form that allowed me to set connections etc. I need to check that the stated paths are correct.

I am attaching a couple of screenshots to assist

a. Shows the error messages when the management.php file is selected from the sub About us menu is selected.
b. Shows the database links I used previously when it worked.

Before it stopped working we used to get a window asking us to login and our password but we no longer get that window.

I would like to get this extension back to the position I had when I first installed PowerCMS. Can I do that and start again? Can I uninstall the links from the
web pages to totally uninstall this extension?

I have no idea why it stopped working or what needs to be changed to re-instate the same.

I would appreciate your assistance in this matter.



I researched the matter further and found that a path to the server was incorrect. I have rewritten the code, in the various pages, and now I have access to the CMS content of those pages again.

If you are still having issues on the live site I'd need a url to reproduce and FTP access to debug. Most likely some files are missing and weren't properly uploaded.
