Unexpected Bootstrap mode

When I try to run configure when logged in as an admin user I get am message that Foswiki is run ning in bootstrap mode and I can't proceed with configure.

Any ideas what is wrong?

Screenshot attached.

Have used configure many times before.

This can happen if the javascript failed, something is blocking execution of javascript, or possibly the jsonrpc back-end is failing. You are seeing the default bin/configure output which is then overwritten / hidden by the javascript code.

So things to check for:
  • Were pub files (js & css) being served - no errors - 404's etc.
  • javascript not blocked by browser, noscript, etc.
  • No javascript errors in the browser console
  • Check network trace - were "jsonrpc" requests issued and returned json data?

I checked all your suggestions, but found nothing wrong.

I then disabled the last plugin installed by editing LocalSite.cfg - PageOptimizerPlugin.

Aok now.

Another side effect this plugin caused by PageOptimizerPlugin was to remove the text "Jump" and "Search" from the Jump and Search boxes in the page headers.

Can't wait to uninstall it.
