Moved my UBB to new server, now it doesn't work #109030

http://www.19wheels.com/cgi-bin/Ultimate.cgi?action=intro

Just waits and waits and waits and waits.

I ran the test script to check the permissions and everything and it all came out good...

I can run the Ultimate.cgi from the command line on the server.... it generates output, but it also generates a lot of errors to stderr... here are a few.. there are about 100 of them..

Name "main::BBTitle" used only once: possible typo at ./Ultimate.cgi line 723.
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at ./Ultimate.cgi line 880.

There are differences between the old server and the new server.. the old was running redhat 7.3 with Apache 1.3.29 and perl 5.6.1 ... the new server is running Redhat 9.0, Apache 2.0.49, and perl 5.8.0

My UBB version is 5.47d

I cannot find the licence information anywhere (we bought it a LONG time ago)

Okay, first things first - did you follow the 5-series instructions when moving the board?

Do the control panel scripts work?

I did not follow those instructions.. I simple tarred/gzipped the files, transferred them, then ungzipped/untarred them... the directory paths were all the exactly the same, as was the domain name and everything else.

I went through and checked my permissions, they all seem to be okay (as I stated in my original message).

The control panel scripts run, but when I try to log in, they just hang, just like the main screen does.

Oh also in step 4 under general settings, there is no link to configure for the first time... it says:

"Your UBB paths are already configured. Identify yourself by filling in the UserName and Password fields below!"

And presents me with a login screen.

You've checked permissions, but have you checked ownership?

I'm not sure what would cause the scripts to hang like that. It shouldn't/can't be the file locking, as the 5-series does not have effective file locking...

Yes, I checked the ownership of the files and directories as well.

The "Ultimate.cgi" script runs okay from the command line, but generates a lot of errors... is this normal?

For the 5-series, yeah, that's all normal. Don't bother trying to run under warnings mode, as you'll get flooded with errors such as those. There is minimal error checking...

What I want you to do is grab the 6-series Trial Version and install it elsewhere on your server.

If it installs properly, then the problem is somewhere in the existing 5-series installation. But if it also locks up, then it's more likely to be a server configuration issue rather than a problem with the boards themselves.
