    More likely a local install issue as this is the only report.

    If you say it happens for everything, that could well be a server issue - though I don't think you would've been able to complete the install or log into the admin CP. Can you try a reupload and a fresh install?

    Also tryed the test upload


    Requirements Met

    Your server meets all of XenForo's PHP requirements.
    XenForo also requires MySQL 5.0 or newer. Please manually check that you meet this requirement.

    What is the URL of the page that gives that error? The URL should expose the action that is 'POST only'.

    The url is when saving anythign in the admincp
    Can't give the url out atm

    Just post the end of the URL. For example:

    admin.php?options/list/boardActive

    Yeah it's submitting it as a GET request. You can see the save action in the URL:

    admin.php?options/save/boardActive

    Try viewing the source code of the page (before you save it). Search for "<form". You should see this code:

    Code:
    <form action="admin.php?options/save/boardActive" method="post" class="xenForm formOverlay">
    
    Can you confirm this code exists in the source? I want to confirm that the form uses method="post".

    Yup its the same

    Code:
    <form action="admin.php?options/save/boardActive" method="post" class="xenForm formOverlay">

    Weird.

    Try a different browser?
     
  15. Wuebit

    Wuebit Well-Known Member

    Same on IE FF and my main one chrome.

    Not this does this on both the xenforo sites on my server.

    In that case I agree with Mike... this sounds like a server problem.

    For the purpose of diagnosing the problem you can submit a ticket with your forum and server logins:

    http://xenforo.com/customers/support

    Fixing the problem might require you to contact your host or server person.
