[gitHub #1377] [Solved] Hide 'Vanilla has already been installed'

jcwebdevjcwebdev New
edited June 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

When I browse to /path/to/vanilla/forum/setup/ I'm presented with a very detailed error message that outlines where Vanilla has been installed to.

This gives away too much system information for my liking and I'd like to hide the page. I can see the error message is being generated by:

forum/applications/dashboard/controllers/class.setupcontroller.php

Is it possible to disable this page without hacking the PHP code in this file?

    Server rule have some nuances, which can be specific to your setup

    I may be easier to use vanilla routes. dashboard/routes->Add Route

    Route Expression

    (dashboard/)?setup(/.*)?

    Target

    dashboard/home/filenotfound

    Type

    Not Found (404)

    You could also use it to redirect to a custom page. I would say report this on git hub becuase is still triggers even if debugging is off. it should really show 'Bonk!' as default.

    grep is your friend.

    yes with server rules like .htaccess something like so

    RewriteRule ^setup(/.*)$ dashboard/home/filenotfound [R=404, L]

    grep is your friend.

    This gives me a 500 internal redirect error.

    I've got Vanilla installed in a subfolder or the domain root but have modified my .htaccess accordingly.

    This works

    ErrorDocument 404 /path/to/forum/dashboard/home/filenotfound 
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule ^(dashboard/)?setup(/.*)? - [L]
    

    change /path/to/forum

    grep is your friend.

    This doesn't work either. No 500 error but it doesn't hide the setup page output.

    Tried a few combinations but I can't get it to work. Any thoughts?

  • Options

    Alternatively, would it be possible just to setup Vanilla to return a simple message saying that it has already been installed as opposed to revealing system paths?

    Sweet, this worked a treat and I've reported it to GitHub as suggested.
