  • [Forum] Init.php file causing 'http error 500'

    The http error 500 started up on my site, no changes made at all by myself. This is vb 4.2.5 forums.

    I'm at the mercy of my host and opened a ticket. They came back with the following errors, and advised that maybe I should download a backup and overwrite that file from the previous day??

    These are the error lines they shared with me. Can anyone offer any further insight? Thanks much in advance!! -Jim

    I just changed the home directory name to ****'s is all.

    If all your files are up to date and unmodified, the system is trying to contact Facebook at this point in the cycle and refresh a Facebook Login cookie.

    Code:
            $fbredirect = "
                <!DOCTYPE html>
                <html>
                <head>
                    <script type='text/javascript' src='//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js'></script>
                    <script type='text/javascript'>
                        FB.init({
                            appId : '{$vbulletin->options['facebookappid']}',
                            version : 'v2.2',
                            status : false,
                            cookie : true,
                            xfbml : false
                        });
                        FB.getLoginStatus(function(response)
                        {
                            window.top.location.reload(true);
                        });
                    </script>
                </head>
                <body></body>
                </html>
            ";
    Line 722 is the <head> element in that string. If your file has something different, we would need to see the code. Make sure you're using vBulletin 4.2.5 files first though.

      Here is what mine has for that same section:

      $fbredirect = "
      <!DOCTYPE html>
      <html>
      <head><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
      <script type='text/javascript' src='//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js'></script>
      <script type='text/javascript'>
      FB.init({
      appId : '{$vbulletin->options['facebookappid']}',
      version : 'v2.2',
      status : false,
      cookie : true,
      xfbml : false
      });

      FB.getLoginStatus(function(response)
      {
      window.top.location.reload(true);
      });
      </script>
      </head>
      <body></body>
      </html>
      .

        Wayne,

        I just re-uploaded the original init.php file from the 4.2.5 download, and now all appears to be just fine. Is that OK to have reuploaded that older file as such?

        Thanks much!!

          The PHP files shouldn't change since they were released so you can overwrite them from the download package. However, from time to time, files do get altered through hardware glitches, software glitches, and even some tools used by ISPs.
