Hello all,

I have two active installs of xenForo, one Beta 1 and one Beta 2. Neither site will allow me to view attached images when I click the thumbnail image. I receive an error everytime.

You may see this happen clicking on the image here.

In Google Chrome, I am getting this error:

Code:
Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown error.
Every user account has full access to the two data directories and I am running on WIMP.

What did you do man !! the whole site went 500

3. ### BlandtWell-Known Member

Ok go to your xenforo adminpanel and try to set the home page to C:\your\path\to\index.php

refresh IIS and try again

4. ### Shaun MasonActive Member

No dice for that.

BTW, I don't have any root content, hence the 500.=)

In Firefox I get a 403 forbidden error.

Are there any server logs to go along with that error?

6. ### Shaun MasonActive Member

I'll have to dig through the logs tonight.

7. ### BlandtWell-Known Member

Bump

I have just setup xenforo with IIS ... I'm having the same issue

it's 1:02 am though ... I will be digging this tomorrow ...

by the way mariadb works wonderful on windows

... and the upload folder contains thumbnail pictures only .. no full size ...hmmm ...

What are the advantages of MariaDB over standard MySQL?

10. ### BlandtWell-Known Member

better engines

and version 5.2.2 + includes Sphinx storage engine

and my favorite is : It's not owned by Oracle ... they can suspend the community edition for all we care now

11. ### BlandtWell-Known Member

This issue has been fixed with the release of Beta 4

12. ### Shaun MasonActive Member

Excellent!

I still need to try out MariaDB.

13. ### BlandtWell-Known Member

Very easy ... but it's going to cost you down-time for your live board unless you have a staging server ...

14. ### Shaun MasonActive Member

No way to run them concurrently? If I could do that I could switch in the AM.

15. ### BlandtWell-Known Member

No we cannot because both use the same port ... unless we use an unconventional port for MySQL ... which is a bad idea

MariaDB? Hm, damn .. now I have to read up on stuff again.
