This question about Configuration, Using an extension, Upgrading from TWiki to Foswiki: Asked

PreferencesPlugin chokes on TWikiPreferencesForm

I encounter a Perl error on an otherwise blank page when attempting to load SitePreferences after upgrading to Foswiki 1.1.4. 1.1.3 loaded this page without problems.

Our site is running Perl version 5.8.5.

I am upgrading from TWiki 4.2.0, with plugin TWikiCompatibilityPlugin v.1.1.2 installed. As per upgrade instructions, I copied SitePreferences into SitePreferences.

When I disable PreferencesPlugin, the topic renders fine.

Configure shows no stop error problems with permissions.

The Foswiki error log reads as follows:
