  • Need to work with tools.php but I am not allowed to use it

    Hello,

    I need to use tools.php to reimport the default language.
    The problem is, that If I upload "tools.php" to "forum/admincp" I can't no longer use admincp. vB says: "Security problem, please remove tools.php from admincp".


    So: How should I use tools.php?

    You need to call it directly:

    www.yourdomain.com/path_to_your_forum/admincp/tools.php

        You need to remove tools.php to access the Admin CP. This is a security precaution.

          I think you didn't understand me

          I need tools.php to reimport the default language.
          But If I put tools.php into admincp, I cannot access admincp.

          ...okay, this seems to be, because of security - it is wanted.

          But If I try opening tools.php directly, I will get a blank page.

            Use tools.php to do the import, remove tools.php then access the Admin CP. I do this all the time in support tickets.

              May be... I think the problem is, that tools.php will be a blank page.

              This seems to be the problem.

                This problem is almost always because the file was not uploaded correctly. Make sure you upload this in ASCII format and overwrite the one on the server.

                  I tried this many times. Redownloading...

                  I think I have to mention, that I am using "IIS" with "PHP 5.1.2".
                  So, it is localhost, no upload...

                      If i understand what your saying, you cant have tools.php uploaded at the same time, while trying to access the ACP.

                        Yes, you cannot access the Admin CP when tools.php is in the admincp directory.
