This is the same problem I have - when I attempt to upload ... it's blank.


Can you email me exactly how to fix it? I am such a newbie when it comes to this stuff and am trying to figure this all out for the first time. The learning curve is harsh!

At first I figured it was because I didn't have the phpbb.php link properly put in, but now I am wondering, if it's supposed to be where it is /Roster/lib/phpbb.php, or am I supposed to have that somewhere else?

That's my problem, too. I've read Twisted-Monkey's following post, but my skills aren't big enough to handle this for my own. Could someone explain it to me in a few steps or short tutorial?

Thanks a lot for your great work ... and hopefully for a little help. :)

I had the same problem since the installation for the roster.

I tried to install it in 2 different host providers with different php/mysql configuration, but both under Apache/Linux.

With little php knowledge, I check the upgrade.php file and I found that the file filter doesn't have any upper/lower check for the name, so the CharacterProfiler.lua must be entered exactly as the script need.

In case of Apache/ISS under Windows there is no problem, but under Linux the filename must be exact as the script.

So I rename the CHARACTERPROFILER.LUA (exactly what I found in my installation) to CharacterProfiler.lua and everything runs smooth on both installs.

Hope that helps :)

As said in another topic, i still have problems with the fact that my members cant upload. they only get an empty update log.
I can upload my own chacracter.lua file, but not that from another member (they sen dthem to me and i upload..), i got an empty log also.

I was wondering if anyone who has reconfigured their php.ini file with open_base_dir could send me a snipet of it. I dont know what I'm supposed to configure it to. Should it be the base directory of my account or base directory of the base of wowroster?

thanks for the help.

You need the php upload temp directory in there
You can find what this is set to in php.ini

If you have open_basedir enabled, ensure you edit the upload_tmp_dir in your php.ini to be under the basedir.

basically my file was not being accepted when it was uploaded. so it never got processed.
I have the same problem but i can't edit the php.ini file. Other suggestions? :scratch:

Ok, i'm alittle confused now. I just talked with my host and they have no variables set for open_base_dir meaning, i guess, i uploads to the current dir. Is it required to have it? I am able to edit my php.ini so no prob with that. my whole roster install is setup like this:

[my portion of server base]/wowroster/htdocs/[all the files]
AKA
/wowroster/htdocs

so what should I put in my php.ini file?

open_base_dir = '/wowroster/htdocs/'

thanks for all the help.

There is a variable set in php.ini called "upload_tmp_dir"
You need the value of this set in "open_base_dir" as well

I dunno how to set multiple paths, but I know it is possible

Thank you so much. That was exactly what I needed to boost me to get it to work. Aparently my host just sends out generic php.ini files and doesnt adjust them with your spot on the server, meaning it was trying to upload to part of the server i didn't own, or didn't have permission to access.

thanks for all the help!

.... it would have helped if they had tried to upload the lua file from the WTF/ directory instead of the addons directory...

In other words.. it works now :)

BUT, it might be wise to put that piece of info in the basic upload instructions.
As it is now, i can kinda understand how they tried to upload the wrong file.

1. Download Character Profiler
2. Extract zip into its own dir in C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons\ (CharacterProfiler\) directory
3. Start WoW
4. Open your bank, quests, and the profession windows which contain recipes
5. Log out/Exit WoW (See above if you want to use the UniUploader to upload the data automatically for you.)
6. Go to the update page
7. Click browse and select your *.lua files to upload

Optional PvP Stats: .....


i'd add to point 7. Click browse and select your *.lua files, Which are located in your WTF/ACCOUNT/SAVEDVARIABLES.... etc.. directory

Just a suggestion :)

There are help tooltips in the update page
Hover over the word "CharacterProfiler.lua"

(In 1.7.1, it should be easier to find the tooltip)

Can anybody tell me what has to be changed in the php.ini file exactly, since I am not able to change the php.ini file myself.

Are there any other solutions for this too?

Thanks folks!
