Help! Can't Disable Plugins or Switch themes all of a sudden!

I installed Vanilla 2.2 a couple days ago and today all of a sudden I am unable to Disable any plugin or Apply themes. This worked a day or two ago but now I have no idea why this is happening. When I click on the 'Disable' or 'Apply' buttons, the page reloads but the action does not take place. I opened up the Developer Tools bar in Chrome and I don't see any errors there. Any ideas on why this is happening or how I can debug this?

  • You can disable plugins by changing True to False in the config.php for enabled plugins in question. You can set the default theme there too while you trouble shoot .

  • Looks like it was a permissions problem, once I set it to 777 it is fixed!

    THanks!

  • @heat23: 777 is not necessarily a good idea for the config.php.

    You can use this bash commands to set the file permissions in your vanilla folder to a slightly less insecure 775 for the config

    find ./ -type d -exec chmod 755 {} +
    find ./ -type f -exec chmod 644 {} +
    chmod -R 775 cache/
    chmod -R 775 uploads
    chmod 775 conf/config.php
