Can't access dashboard settings area - fresh install [RESOLVED]
This discussion is related to the Vanilla addon.
edited March 2018 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Everything went just fine on the forum I manage. But I tried to install Yaga plugin, and then I can't acces anymore some sections of the dashboard.
I check the permisssions with file explorer and find various permissions like 777 for many folders.
I said to myself, wtf, did I really do that? Reverted to 755 folders and 644 all files, messed up all the installation.
I thought I have a malware, and scanned everything.
Now I tried to start from scratch with a new installation then just change the config.php. But NO, it's the same problem.
And I noticed that non-standard permissions are set even for a fresh install. Is this the new trend for security, 777 permissions?
This is the message loaded when I try to access right dashboard section.
This is displayed when I click the right dashboard area.
These are the errors displayed with debug set TRUE.
Sounds as if you haven't deleted "/applications/vanilla/controllers/class.settingscontroller.php"

This is a fresh install of Vanilla 2.5.1, nothing to upgrade, and no file to delete.
If we are talking of a fresh installation of plain Vanilla and you have problems with only a few routes, check the following:
PHP and MySQL minimum requirements are met?
Curl and MB_String extensions installed?
I couldn't think of much more... :-(
I have those extensions installed for php 7.1, that forum is using.
This is the debug output using the new .htaccess:
I compiled php 7.2 and this time won the jackpot. I am curious about what's the difference between the two, must check the php extensions list. Thank you!
Maybe you didn't have 'iconv' extension installed on previous version.
(looking at the code you've posted previously)
