  • A couple of issues - v9

    Hi there,

    i've got actinic v9 and everythings been working great up until the end of may when its all gone wrong. All of a sudden the website can no longer receive orders and when you go through the check out process there's an internal server error once you've selected your payment method.

    i've looked through countless post on here about server errors and have incremented the cgi script by 1, refreshed the site but with no luck.

    Also, just today when checking the network configuration its nows saying "You do not have write permissions to the cgi-bin directory "cgi-bin/" or it does not exist." after the test. It passes all other checks.

    Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?

    I've got a 1and1 business package, running windows 7 and have the ssl switched off. Im beginning to wonder whether the recent changes to paypal, and a recent update to the 1and1 server has rendered my site now inoperable permanently??

    My domain is www.purethoughts.co.uk - any help/insight would be so very much appreciated.

    Have you tried connecting manually to the server with an FTP client and checking the folder permissions?

      Hi Duncan.

      Thanks for the response, Yes, check using Filezilla permissions on the cgi bin are 755.

        It all seems to be working this morning? I placed a test order and got as far as the paypal login screen so there's nothing wrong that I could see.

        Is it all Ok at your end?

          HI Mike

          Thanks so much for trying - unfortunatly nothing working at my end on two differnent pcs with different browsers.

          I've attached the error file from the server. Im totally confused by whats occurring as ive had 0 orders in a week which is most unusual.

          All i get when i place an order is an internal server error after 10 seconds, on both worldpay and paypal.

            Strange, now I'm seeing the same thing on your site, but it definitely worked earlier this morning.

            I'm also with 1and1 on a business package but orders are still coming in so unless they're doing a staged server upgrade then that doesn't sound like the problem.

            Also the paypal updates have been put off until next year so that shouldn't be the problem either.

            The cgi-bin and stale lock error messages does sound like a server issue. The first things I'd try is opening permissions right up on the cgi-bin and acatalog folders and doing another refresh.

            Do you get the test email when you test the network settings? Email problems are another thing that can freeze the checkout on earlier sellerdeck versions.

              HI Mike

              Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. I've opened the acatalog/cgi files to 777 but that doesnt seem to help. When i do a network test(setting attached) it sporadically gives me a cant connect to via ftp or sporadically says i dont have permission to access cgi bin/ it does exist - however i ve just tested them again, received the actinic email no problem but when it goes to testing write permission tells me

              "Failed to transfer a test file to the online store folder. (null)" - not sure what that even means.

              Thought, damn now what going on - retried it and everything goes through fine , received actinic email and then received the network settings succesful message.

              This is proving to be quite testing!! Website still inoperable.

                I dont really get this as i've just refreshed the website and it still doesnt work on two different pcs. Flicked on my tablet and it worked straight away - how is that even possible?

                Still not working for everyone though....

                    No at work computer as at home so cannot look up on mine but there is a facility to delete and re publish sellerdeck on one of the menu's on the right hand side of the main menu so making a clean install on the server

                    Otherwise snapshot and open a new site and import snapshot and re publish to server which means you would have checked sellerdeck files are ok

                      Hi chris, thanks so much for the advice, ive tried a few diferrent purge and refreshes but will follow your advice and try your approach.

                      It sure is a frustrating problem as it does work sporadically.

                      Does anyone think that 1and 1 might have changed some server setting that would make my site permanently unusable?

                      Does any else still use v9 on 1 and 1?

                      For some reason on the sucessful orders actinic doesnt register the payment in , its all v e ry strange.

                      Cheers,

                        Similar Problem on V8

                        I'm having a similar problem with v8 and 1 & 1.

                        There was a problem Aug/Sept last year where 1 & 1 had changed the PHP settings without telling anyone. After a lot of running in to brick walls it was eventually solved by manually changing the PHP setting on 1 & 1 server back to 5.4 as detailed here: http://community.sellerdeck.com/show...485#post349485

                        It's all been working as normal until yesterday. I've had a go at ordering and a 500 error occurs after clicking "next" on the payment details page (I'm old school and don't use a provider).

                        I've checked the PHP setting on the1 & 1 server and it's still on 5.4.

                        Odd thing is, I received an email from 1 & 1 in May saying they were updating their server and that I should ensure my scripts are compatible with Perl 5.2. I then received an email yesterday pm saying that the upgrade was complete and Perl 5.2 was now available.

                          Im so glad that your've posted - i found your post when this whole thing started for me 3 weeks ago!! I've not had an order since then. I even nearly rang your phone listed on the site as i had got so desperate.

                          I've tried EVERYTHING - purges, refreshes, i even paid extra to drop back to 5.2 on php - nothing seems to work - ive ranted and ranted and ranted some more at 1and1 they insist nothings changed and i keep getting this blanket response from them

                            Michael - which version of Sellerdeck are you using?

                            Same thing has just happened to our site this evening (24th June from 5pm) (on shared server with1&1 Business Pro).
                            We are running Sellerdeck version 10.0.2 and had the server upgrade email from 1&1 today.
                            Now everything results in an Internal server error once you try to complete an order
                            As already stated by another, the same thing happened back in November, then righted itself
                            1&1 do seem to have a habit of tampering/server changes, without keeping the helpdesk briefed

                              Hi Im using version 9.05 - its been down for like a month now - trying to move to actinic hosting just to get the site back up - its proving more challenging than i though changing servers -

                              did you get your site back up?
