Codoforum on OpenLightSpeed Web Server + broken links on docs page

This is a duplicate of a support ticket I created earlier today; perhaps it's worthwhile with a broader audience and greater visibility to find what I'm looking for.


I have recently installed codoforum on OLSWS. The installation was mostly painless; however some of the admin pages aren't working properly. I did hit a snag trying to create my admin user - when trying to create an admin user with a different name I got an error, but when I named the admin user "admin" it proceeded as desired. I don't know if this is a bug or intentional; just thought it worth a mention.


Initially I was getting 404/403 errors on the whole site, but I updated the .htaccess with the recommended rewrite rules and that brought it to life.


However, I'm getting errors in the admin area on a couple of pages when trying to "save" settings. Example: the "Global settings" is accessible but throws 403 when I try to save.
Same problem with trying to edit "Pages" - I can access them, and bring up the editor, but when I try to save it's 403.


All permissions have been set by default by "Cyberpanel": all files are rw-r-r and all directories are rwxr-xr-x.


The codoforum looks and feels amazing. Would be great to publicize that we can make it work on OpenLightSpeed WebServer smile


[edit]
Also, there is a broken link at //codoforum.com/documentation/installation (left off the h-t-t-p-s due to user restrictions) at the bottom of the post it suggests to create a topic if you have problems installing on a different web server.


Here is the way the link is formed on the instalation docs page:
codologic.com/forum/index.php?u=/forum/topics/codoforum-related-discussions (I couldn't post the h-t-t-p due to user restrictions)


Here is how it should be formed (I couldn't post the h-t-t-p-s due to user restrictions)

I found the solution but I had to uninstall codo and go back to wordpress before google would show me an answer.


The issue was ModSecurity being too strict. Appears to be working fine now.

Hi


Thanks for letting us know about the link issues in documentation.


Glad you found a solution. Let us know if you need any help.

Necessity is the mother of all inventions!

I'm having a new issue. I believe it's related to caching. The issue seems non-critical but somewhat inconvenient.


It appears to happen the first time I click on a link to a category/topic/post. If it hasn't been clicked before. Then I get a php fatal error. Refresh page and the error goes away.


I was unable to post the error message in a code block: it triggered an error. I assume this is because the code blocks are made for html and not for php.


Here's a screenshot at printscr: https://prnt.sc/w47sc7


I edited the error message to remove my domain and replaced it with my.domain
