Vanilla HELP! :)

 [1/14] from: norselord::hotmail::com at: 31-Jan-2002 16:33


I've installed Vanilla 0.5.1 on a Windows XP Pro machine running IIS. Here is what I know is correct: 1. The shebang is correct. 2. IIS is set up to execute REBOL scripts and test scripts work fine. REBOL is set up to use all CGI verbs. 3. I have set my Web Sharing permissions for all /cgi-bin directories and sub-directories (where Vanilla resides) to allow read, write, and script execution. 4. Writing to a /cgi-bin subdirectory using a REBOL script does work. Now here's my problem: I am able to execute/browse to the vanilla.r file and view the initial page where you are asked to create a master user. When I enter my information and submit the form, it just times out. Any friggin' clue why this is happening? I've been racking my brain on this one for hours. Oh, and hello to everyone in REBOLand! I haven't submitted to the list in a while because I've been so busy at my new job. Now hopefully I can spend more time with my language of choice. :) -Ryan

Unfortunately I have no IIS available to test. Why not just use Apache, where everything works, always (uhm, almost always ;-)? I guess it's an IIS-specific anomaly in the request reading code ... Has anyone had any success in getting Vanilla to work with IIS (5) yet? You can download Vanilla, REBOL and Apache in an easily installable package from http://www.vanillasite.at/dist/0.5/vanilla-sbx-0.5.exe . Best regards, -- Chris -- http://www.langreiter.com

Hi Ryan 1. If you are using vanilla be sure to register for vanilla-pudding mailing list. Very ittle traffic, but vanilla developers are there. 2. The first debug advice for vanilla is to edit your /exec/vanilla.r file as follows: Find the first line which says ; print "Content-type: text/html^/^/" and delete the semicolon. Hitting reload in your web browser and you may now see a more helpful error message. 3. Chris Langreiter's vanilla site is back up in new dversion :) So check out the installation help pages at: http://www.langreiter.com/space/vanilla-installation http://www.langreiter.com/space/vanilla-installation-windowsxp good luck and welcome to vanilla! ./Jason

Chris, This is probably the old error I detected last summer which prevents one of using IIS w/Vanilla. MS nurtures this bug since 3 versions now! See also: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q176113 Eberhard

Christian- Thanks for the link to the VanillaSBX. The reason I tried IIS in the first place is because I could not find an active VanillaSBX link on langreiter.com. Also, please check into the CGI non-parsing headers problem which was pointed out in a different response. IIS is easy to administer and it would be nice to be able to run Vanilla on IIS. Thanks again! You're one of my heroes. :)

The link to VanillaSBX was broken on langreiter.com. But hey, it's a Wiki! So I fixed it myself. :)

that is an IIS feature - it'd be better if microsoft breaks it ;) vanilla uses redirection extensively to present proper things after a user logged in or registered. one would be able to circumvent the IIS bug by using a kinda trick: rewrite your http-redir function to NOT write out an http header but print a simple html page with a meta http-equiv redirection. but that is just plain ugly - i would suggest to urge for a fix at microsoft. -- Best regards, Andreas mailto:[andreas--bolka--gmx--net]

it's basically a wikiwiki written in REBOL - although in reality its quite enhanced already ;) documentation is rare langreiter.com is rebuilding, but you'd better subscribe vanilla-pudding at yahoogroups where this discussion would better fit ;) -- Best regards, Andreas mailto:[andreas--bolka--gmx--net]

A wikiwiki? I'm going to go lie down, now.

Oh, wow. Okay. That site raises more questions than answers - much more - so uh.. I'm going to get some sleep and tackle it in the morning ;) Thanks for the info, though.
