SID-02214: Format issues after lift and shift of Twiki between machines

Status: Asked Asked TWiki version: pre-4 Perl version: unknown
Category: CategoryBrowser Server OS: Unix/linux Last update: 1 year ago

We have copied our Twiki site from one unix server to a Linux and when I access the url, the formatting in the web browser seems to have gone a little dulally. Any ideas would be grateful ly appreciated. I tried to register a username with you but I am still waiting on an email delivery so have used guest log on instead. My email is peter.bracuti@sainsburysPLEASENOSPAM.co.uk. Thanks and regards Peter

Discussion and Answer

Just a guess: A frequent cause of layout problems are permissions. Different flavours of Unix/Linux (or even different Linux distributions) run their web servers under different user ids. Just check file ownerships for the templates and pub directories. Another check would be whether the url-to-path mapping in the web server's configuration matches. In both cases, the web server's error log should contain complaints about 'no permission' or 'file not found', respectively.

Good luck!

As Harald indicated, layout issue is likely caused by a TWiki pub path not working properly.

Check the apache setting for twiki/pub. Assuming it is at /var/www/example.com/twiki/pub, and assuming your TWiki pub URL path is defined at /pub, do this:

Alias /pub "/var/www/example.com/twiki/pub"

Then check your TWiki configure setting (or directly twiki/lib/LocalSite.cfg) for TWiki pub:

$TWiki::cfg{PubUrlPath} = '/pub';

$TWiki::cfg{PubDir} = '/var/www/example.com/twiki/pub';
