Fixed WAMP - Localhost Apache issue saving CSS files

Discussion in 'Resolved Bug Reports' started by Kim, Nov 1, 2010.

    Hey hey :)

    I have discovered an issue with WAMP and Apache, when saving CSS files (only - templates changes save fine) in imported Styles (Default or new children styles no problems with saving CSS files)

    Basically Apache is resetting the connection when I attempt to save a change to CSS files on imported Styles.

    ... and I would rather not go to Zend as I have other products on my localhost that work perfectly with WAMP.

    Thanks :)

    What do you mean by resetting the connection ? :)

    you´´ll have much less problems if you install a (real)server on any old computer. if needed go to http://netboot.me
    where you get the images for a cd or usb the rest is quite easy.
    a step further will be a vps but such require more administration effort.

    Hi Cool...I don't want a real server, nor VPS, this is a localhost on my own computer for development purposes, not a live situation ;) As I said in my original post, I am not after another solution, no other software has this issue, only xenforo on one particular set of circumstances (saving a CSS file on an imported style).

    Hi Blandt.. as in; I get a windows message saying Apache has stopped running - but actually it hasn't it has just reset the connection to Apache, so when I try to save a CSS file it fails.

    Any CSS template? (Even one of the really small ones?)

    Kim Well-Known Member

    yes Mike... the one I first discovered it on was the forms.css which is only a pretty small one.

    I have tested several others, but not one of the tiny baby ones..will do so now.

    Ok... Interesting node_page.css which is a baby one saved fine.

    pagenode.css also saved fine.


    could be size related...

    Can you save an unmodified version of form.css? (Well, not totally unmodified - you'll need to add a space somewhere insignificant to trigger the "change indicator".)

    Hi Mike,

    No, form.css will not save.

    I just encountered this issue saving xenforo.css in a brand new skin.

    Does this happen just on the localhost?

    The reason I'm asking is to see if this is a server issue .... and if so do you know how to dig the log file?

    I've noticed on WAMP that for whatever reason, when any PHP error occurs within XenForo, Apache completely crashes (and silently). The error appears in the PHP error log; nothing interesting in the Apache log.

    Though it may be unrelated/just me.

    Yes just on localhost, live server environment is fine (just too slow to develop on)

    I use this tool to debug IIS issues (very effective) : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...41-C458-46F1-B24D-F60151D875A3&displaylang=en

    If you want to give it a go and post back the results ... or wait until I get my hands on my kids computer to install WAMP... :D (Sorry I wish I could help right away)

    I know ... :)

    but any windows process that "hangs" or dies unexpectedly can be debugged with it
    The tool provides special scripts for IIS though ... which you won't be using :) Any ways ... I only have two arms, give me some time I will get to this.
    I always have this urge to mess and debug servers :D and I take great pleasure in doing it :D

    Speaking of which, how is my messing around with my server going :D

    Blandt Well-Known Member

    One server at a time :D .... but I am convinced that the best course to take in your case is the use of subdomains :) (But let's wait for Beta3)
  19. Andy.N

    Andy.N Well-Known Member

    You and your subdomains. ;)

    This is the same issue with IIS as well. The server appears to "reset" even when attaching a PDF or a large JPEG file
