View Full Version : My efm directory got zapped
11-09-2008, 11:28 AM
Everything but the index.php file in /big/dom/xljvideo/www/efm has disappeared. I've done nothing to cause this.
Yesterday, I could access efm as usual, today, it's a blank web page.

Nevermind... Remembered that the filter files are located somewhere else, but that still doesn't explain why I'm getting a blank page when accessing EFM.

See if this helps:

Thanks, Melissa. I see that I've been "upgraded" to PHP5.

I've found a simple fix for EFM.
Thanks to hints in Matt's post here (http://www.aota.net/forums/showthread.php?t=24427) (as I am NOT a PHP programmer) but it turns out the problem is the $this variable.
Here is the fix:
Go to your file
find the file
In that file change all occurences of
(or some other value that starts with a dollar sign and is not the same as $this)
There were 10 such occurences in my index.php file.
I changed them all, saved the index.php file, and now it works again.

Yep, I did it based on Melissa's earlier post, and now I can access the EFM manager again.
Huh. My index.php file doesn't contain "$this" anywhere.

Huh. My index.php file doesn't contain "$this" anywhere.Maybe it's an earlier version (v1.15 is the last)?
All three of my EFM installs had that in it. Replacing it did the trick!

This thread just rescued me -- thanks Melissa and Sheila!!!

I didn't think to check the EFM manager either. Just to be perverse, I changed $this to $that. :rasberry:
To tell the truth, I wasn't even sure EFM was still active. My father used to give me words and domains for the blacklists, but they haven't been updated in years. The logs show that EFM is still eating some of the junk, but it amounts to only 6,400 rejects since mid-2005.
Probably could use some freshening up...
