Hi all.

 

Great contribution.

 

I have installed it with no problem, and discovered that after cleaning my hacked site, I forgot one file with bad code inside.

 

Anyway, I don't understand how to set automatic scans (due to my bad english).

 

Where is configured this feature?

 

Thanks.

You have to setup a cron job. There are basic instructions in the install file but cron jobs can vary with the host so you will probably need to ask your host how to do it if the basic code doesn't work.

Ahhh, it's an option in cPanel. Got it.

 

Thank you for your fast reply.

hi Jack

 

After having problems with the script timing out after 30 seconds I contacted my host who informed me that:

"we do not allow site monitor, as it causes high load on the server."

 

So I was just wanted to make you aware of this, maybe in the future the script could be a little lighter as I am unable to benefit from it currently.

 

Thanks

You can reduce the number of files being monitored to get the script to run.

I have a problem where if I run sitemonitor.php through a browser it gives me a report on the screen, but even though I have set it to always email me, which it used to do up until yesterday. Now it doesnt send any email and if I run it through the admin it comes up with an error 500 - Internal Server Error. If I run it manually from the Site Monitor Admin, it works.

 

I have got auto_backup on this shop too and have already checked the clash in the microtime_float, but I must have a later version of the site monitor code as mine says SiteMonitor_microtime_float, even so I have commented it out but that makes no difference.

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

If it was working before and you didn't change any of the files, then the problem isn't in the contribution. Most likely, your host has made some change to the server or maybe you have added enough files to your shop to put you over the limit that your server can handle.

Thanks for that Jack,

 

I have spoken to the host (1 and 1) who say they couldnt see any reason in particular for it, I am well within my resource usage and there are no other apparent problems. They did do a webspace refresh to make sure there were no processes stuck running or anything like that.

 

I have tried it since and still get the same issue. One thing I did notice that having done a phpinfo() I found that this server has php 4.4.9, I also found numerous things on the web that suggest the fix for 1 and 1 in particular is to add the following to the .htaccess file

 

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

 

But this also made no difference, having said that, I have numerous versions of .htaccess and the only one I changed was in the route of the admin folder, should I change any of the others with the same thing?

 

Thanks:)

Jack,

 

One more question if I may, how do the run site monitor and delete reference file and run site monitor keeping the existing reference file differ from running it manually or checking for hacked files?

 

Those are the only 2 processes on my shop that give an error 500 problem, I havent found anything else that causes the error.

 

Thanks.

I don't know which two you are saying works and which two fail so I can't really comment on that. But the kind of error you are getting can be caused by the script timing out. Try cutting down the number of files being referenced and see if that makes a difference. I posted a general troubleshooting method for this in this thread but I'v eno idea how long ago that was. But it is there is you need it.

Hi Jack,

 

Hope all is excellent with you.

 

Just finished updating from 1.7 to 2.7(inch by inch).

Nice enhancements, like watching a rose bloom.

 

There are a couple areas of uncertainty...

 

Should the quarantine folder be added to admin?

 

Should iframes be added to the hacker box or

does the <frames encompass iframes?

 

Lastly, regarding the exclude checkbox, if it is checked,

does it skip the entire file or just that specific line number?

 

Thanks for your patience and support.

Yes.

No, that is a mistake. It should be <frame. Thanks for pointing it out.

does it skip the entire file or just that specific line number?

The file.

I have 2.2RC2 installed, initially had 2.3 installed but downgraded due to mods not being available yet due to some code change in 2.3. Everything went fine with the install and I was able to update the config file with no problems...only issues i run into is when I click the first button for Site Mon in the admin panel...instead of getting the message stating this was the first time the process has ran I get a few hundred lines of the below and then my store no longer works....is this a possible permissions issue?

Those are all errors caused by the failure of the code to quaranteen the files. Which is a good thing in this case since it will pobably destroy your site. The quaranteen option should not be used until you know everything is working. This was gone over recently. Just read back through the thread for details.

I can't complete Step 5:

 

Step 5: Go to admin->Sitemonitor->Configure, setup the various settings and click Update.

 

I've done everything to the letter up through step 4 but when I try to change the configuration options by clicking the Update button I get taken to a customer screen. When I go back to SiteMonitor none of the options have changed.

 

What am I doing wrong?

There is something wrong in your admin (no idea where) since there isn't any code in SiteMonitor to cause it to go to the customer section. I can't even offer a suggestion on this one.

It's not that it actually goes to the customer section, the address just displays the admin address and the screen displays the last 5 orders. It's like it can't write to the configuration file. I've tried different permissions with no luck. I can manually edit the configuration file to have the values I want and it will run, but I get unlink errors when it tries to copy files when I run it.

So the error is saying, "Your username is invalid" and the message is showing your system username is "stopdra1" and that your SiteMonitor user name is "username." Please explain what part of that you don't understand?

Hi Jack,

Thanks for the answers to my last post.

 

I know this is outside the scope of this thread but

I'm hoping it doesn't go beyond the limits of your patience.

 

Do you know of a way to substitute

echo tep_image_submit( ...

 

with

echo '<a href="' . tep_href_link( ...

 

to get the same result?

 

in other words, is there a way to use

echo '<a href="' . tep_href_link( ...

as a submit hyperlink?

 

The reason why is trying to get code that works fine in firefox

to work in internet explorer.

 

Thanks for any answer(even a reprimand)

It's not a matter of patience. Support threads are for questions about a particular contribution. Those with problems will, should, read through the thread to find answers for their problems before posting. When there are posts that have nothing to with the contribution,it makes it more difficult to find the answer. So please post non-contribution related questions in the general forum.

( of course it was before the last ?>. )

It means it can't find the actual file. You should double check that you have actually uploaded the files and they are in the correct location. In other words, go to admin/includes/boxes and see if there is a file there named sitemonitor.php.
