Explain what you do to find the issue
You try to activate AuditLog ?
I check : it seems to work on last master, no need symbolic link.
|It was all the plugins in /limesurvey/application/core/plugins/. I debugged myself and in application/models/Plugin.php I saw the path to the configuration files for plugins was pointing to /limesurvey/plugins/... So I did this adhoc solution with symbolic link and it started to work.|
|After a manually upgrade of Limesurvey, according to these instructions https://manual.limesurvey.org/upgrading_from_a_previous_version, I wanted to change settings in a plugin AuthLdap, therefore I went to Global Settings -> Plugin Manager and encountered immediately error message "Missing configuration for plugin AuditLog". As I understand AuditLog is on top of the plugin list.|
Upgrade from what version ?
|I don't quite remember now. But it was around 4.3 I think. I upgraded because I encountered a similiar problem when I was going to change settings for AuthLdap. I went to Global Settings->Plugin Manager and got the plugin list accordingly. But as soon as I pressed AuthLdap plugin the error message was "Missing configuration for plugin AuthLdap". Then I thought maybe I should upgrade to see if it works better and on that road it was.|
For information :
type of plugin set the directory : https://github.com/LimeSurvey/LimeSurvey/blob/master/application/models/Plugin.php#L25
update steps are
AuthDB and AuditLog must be «core»
|In mysql database the table lime_plugins shows type "core" for AuthDB and AuditLog and "user" for AuthLdap. But when I debugged the directory for all these plugins was pointed to /limesurvey/plugins.|
I checked the upgrade from the last 4.3 to latest 4.x version and I could not reproduce the problem.
Did you maybe use a 4.4RC version in the past?
> In mysql database the table lime_plugins shows type "core" for AuthDB and AuditLog and "user" for AuthLdap. But when I debugged the directory for all these plugins was pointed to /limesurvey/plugins.
Maybe related to a specific directory configuration ?
Dir set here : https://github.com/LimeSurvey/LimeSurvey/blob/5423d57d4fa289c5d54a1c5b1cdd90d7f26323b0/application/libraries/PluginManager/PluginManager.php#L35
> "user" for AuthLdap
It must be core
In Plugin.php in function getDir() the following happens:
$alias is set to "webroot.plugins" and $this->plugin_type is "user" for plugin AuditLog. In mysql database the plugin_type is "core" for AuditLog. So the plugin_type is set to wrong type. I haven't yet checked how the plugin_type is set. But probably there is the error.
As I said I followed the instructions for manual upgrade and removed all files except for
The version before was something 4.3 as I remember I upgraded limesurvey last year in June.
The error only appears in PluginManager, otherwise Limesurvey works fine.
|I can also see when I list the plugins in https://www.irf.se/limesurvey/index.php?r=admin/pluginmanager/sa/index that AuditLog and AuthLdap is marked with correct plugin_type core. But despite of that in Plugin.php plugin_type is "user" fro all plugins.|
