    Thanks for the confirmation, Jerome. I ended up using authtype basic for site access and then email-only login for the walled garden. view reply
  • It's working now. My fault :( I finally tracked it down to an orphan record in the queue.db (I don't know how it got there). This appeared to cause a problem in: /izap_videos/views/default/izap_videos/admin/getQueue.php Line 33 with a... view reply
  • Hello iionly, Thanks for your prompt response. I've been on this all afternoon and still no joy. Ffmpeg just appears to stop after the creation of the png thumbnail. I'm also using Tidypics and that is working fine. Cron is enabled and... view reply

    Hello Hermand, You could have a look at the following for working examples: a) Elgg reference at http://reference.elgg.org/index.html Search for elgg_view_entity_icon and look at the given example. b) Plugins that use the functionality you... view reply

    • Hello iionly,

      Thanks for your prompt response. I've been on this all afternoon and still no joy. Ffmpeg just appears to stop after the creation of the png thumbnail. I'm also using Tidypics and that is working fine. Cron is enabled and running, the files exist, I can video convert via the command line using the domain user and the data directory group includes www-data.

      I'll keep at it and let you know when I've succeeded. It's probably something embarrassingly simple :) 

      Thanks again.

    • It's working now. My fault :(

      I finally tracked it down to an orphan record in the queue.db (I don't know how it got there). This appeared to cause a problem in: /izap_videos/views/default/izap_videos/admin/getQueue.php Line 33 with a call to PHP filesize(). As the orphan record was first in the queue I believe it prevented the queue from running the conversion on the other videos. What led me to this was attempting to delete the first record in the queue threw a critical error.

      Anyway, if anyone else should have problems converting videos and a "Warning: filesize() [function.filesize]: stat failed for..." is logged in the error.log and deleting a video in the queue causes a critical error it could be the result of an orphan record in the queue.db.

    Not to worry, I've answered my own question. I added AuthType Basic to .htaccess. view reply

    Hello, I have installed the latest version of Elgg (via composer) on a VPS (Ubuntu 20.04 - Plesk Obsidian). It is a private family site (invite only) and hence I am using the Walled Garden. The data folder is outside httpdocs. Ideally, I would...
    • Not to worry, I've answered my own question.

      I added AuthType Basic to .htaccess.

    • How secure is Elgg in Walled Garden mode from indexing and those pesky bots?

      We haven't had any issues yet with our clients which use Walled Garden mode to protect their websites from the public eye.

      In the admin section you can also configure the robots.txt which is used by the indexing bots, there you can make sure the bots don't try to index your site.

      But since all unauthenticated responses are 403 the bots wont index those pages anyway

    Thanks for this, Jeroen. It's extremely useful for upgrading plugins.
