Something has gone wrong.

We've run into a problem and are unable to handle this request right now.

Please check back in a little while.


The site was working with about.php no problems ,

It's broken after I replaced about.php with addon.json.

I have try clear .ini files from cache and it does'nt help.

How can i fix that and make addon.json works?
