Need help desperately.... What would make a redmine site looks like this?

Added by Allan Melsen over 9 years ago

Alright.. I'm working on moving to a new host.. the new host supports fcgi, and the old one doesn't.

So, on the new site, I installed redmine, and once that was done, copied the files over from the old site and then imported the old DB, and it seems all content is there.. except the two sites looks VEEERY different.

Old site (that works) http://forge.insane-asylum.dk
New site (doesn't look right http://forge.meta-network.net/public/

Can anyone tell me whats wrong here?

Easy: /public/stylesheets/application.css?1206615845 is not accessible. Please ensure that your web server is configured to serve this css.

First, check that in your redmine tree you have the $REDMINE_ROOT/public/stylesheets/application.css file, and that's readable for the web server. Then check that your web server don't prevent access to it.

PS: fcgi is not a good idea, from my point of view...

Hey thanks...

Why is it fcgi isnt a good idea? With CGI I just find it runs so slow....

CGI is worst :)

CGI and fcgi are just pain to configure: if you meet a problem, there's poor or no log or information about the "why" it crashes. Personnaly, I'm adept of the mongrel cluster behind a reverse_proxy: it's damn easy to configure and to monitor.

I seriously cannot make it work...

You are right.. it does seem as if it is the css files its not accessing.

Can anyone here tell me precisely in detail what to ask for, because this is with a hosting company, and I dont have access to do any specific configuration in regards to the webserver.

Is there any other configuration I can do.. like.. .htaccess or something like that?

Did you make sure (like Thomas already said) that the web server can read the CSS file? Did you set the correct directory and file permissions after uploading? In a shared hosting environment the files in the public directory usually have to be world-readable.

Could you please tell me how I do these things precisely in detail?

Here's what I can tell you.

Everybody has read access to both the public and the stylesheets directory.
Everybody has read access on the .css files. (there isn't execute rights on them which I presume shouldn't be necessary.

When you say "did you set the correct directory" - what do you mean by that? Also... since I dont have read access to the actual apache configuration, how do I make sure that the webserver actually can access and attempts to access the .css files?

If anyone here would be willing to take a look, I would be more than happy to provide a login to that section....

It's a question of webserver configuration. You should request the help of your system administrator for this question.
