View Full Version : /index.php not found
02-19-2007, 08:22 PM
Someone recently pointed out this issue to me, but I'm lost as to where to go from here..
I haven't made any changes to the site other than adding a new template recently.. When I've done this previously, I haven't had this issue..
Now when someone leaves a comment at www.splendor-solis.com it says:
The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Any help is very much appreciated :)

Does your new template require you to use a modified index.php file?
I also tried making a comment and i received the same error.

Don't believe so.. AFAIK I have never modified the index.php page at all..

Hmm, seems strange.
I would have thought that the index was modified.
I took a quick glance at the comment form code and made sure your links all worked and everything seemed fine except for the comment submission error.

Well, I'm stumped.. I wonder if I should just reinstall.. hopefully I can do that without losing all images, etc?

The 404 error occurs when some variables do not match when posting a comment.
So compare the comment form (HTML) to one of Pixelpost's own templates. You'll see there are some hidden fields in there. If these values are not found a 404 error can occur.

Well I had Transcending send me his index.php file and sure enough the save_comment function was heavily modified.
Just make sure to make a backup of the hacked version first. Other functions besides save_comment may also be modified and then you'll be in trouble!

All sorted.. Thanks to you both!
It was, as above, a missing script from the new template..

I'm not sure as i don't use google analytics, but, if google uses JS to track visitors then I don't see how google will be able to track a visitor with JS disabled ;)
