How do I repair a broken configruation (A.K.A. HELP!!!!)

If you get into 'trouble' with your system you might be able to salvage your site by browsing to either:

If you are not logged in as an administrator when trying this you will have to:

  • Open the cchost_lib/cc-config-repair.php file in a text editor
  • Remove the two forward slashes '//' before the word 'return' in the line at the top of the file
  • Save this file to disk
  • From your browser, go to 'http://your_server/cchost_lib/cc-config-repair.php'. This should bring up a configuration editor
  • Click on the word 'media' to open the configuration settings and see if you can spot the error
  • After you have fixed (or decided you can't fix) the problem make sure to the put the '//' back into the cchost_lib/cc-config-repair.php file otherwise you will leave a large gaping security hole in your site
