Bug: Can't save edits after installing TWiki20010817beta

Test case

  • Install the latest (8/17/01) beta.
  • Edit TWiki.cfg to match site information.
  • Pick a page, edit, preview, and try to save.
  • In browser, see the following:

Software error: Can't locate Net/SMTP.pm in @INC (@INC contains: ../lib . /usr/share/lib/perl5/irix-n32/5.00404 /usr/share/lib/perl5 /usr/share/lib/perl5/site_perl/irix-n32 /usr/share/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/share/lib/perl5/sgi_perl) at ../lib/TWiki/Net.pm line 38.

  • In Apache log, there is the following error:

I'm not sure if the ref to SMTP.pm is really relavent, the software can cope with this not being present. There error appears to be due to $meta not being defined, it's not obvious how this could happen. The URL appears to be odd, no web or topic between bin and save. I assume you can view and preview a page, can you check the urls all have Web and Topic in them.

-- JohnTalintyre - 23 Aug 2001

Yes, view and preview work just fine, it's only the final save step that generates an error.

I just verified that the URL in the browser window does include the web and topic. So, my real URL is http://premfg.umi.bhowell.com:58304/twiki-beta/bin/save/Test/TestTopic2, but in the Apache log I see

[Fri Aug 24 08:18:45 2001] save: Name "main::noForm" used only once: possible typo at /msdtools/apache_msdinet/twiki-beta/bin//save line 122.
[Fri Aug 24 08:18:45 2001] save: Name "main::tmpl" used only once: possible typo at /msdtools/apache_msdinet/twiki-beta/bin//save line 112.

Curiouser and curiouser ... the edit is saved after all, even though an error is reported.

I've just installed the latest beta and I see this error at every page view.

My environment:

TWiki version: TWiki20010817beta
TWiki plugins: None
Server OS: Redhat Linux 7.1
Web server: Apache 1.3.19
Perl version: 5.6.0
Client OS: Redhat Linux 7.1
Web Browser: Mozilla 0.9.1

A similar problem looks to have occured in the 20010720 beta - see SMTPnotWorking.

-- MartinPotter - 26 Aug 2001

Fix record

The SMTP error and the $meta problem should be fixed in the TWikiRelease01Dec2001.
