FoswikiAuxMuteOut

Hi,

I am trying to install Foswiki on Windows 10.,Foswiki release is : 2.1.3, I was trying to configure Mail by going to url /foswiki/bin/configure ,

clicking on to Mail -> Basic Settings & Auto-Configure.

When I click on to autoconfigure button in Webmaster Email, I am getting below error:


Failed to load wizard Foswiki::Configure::Wizards::AutoConfigureEmail: Can't locate Foswiki/Aux/MuteOut.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Foswiki::Aux::MuteOut module) (@INC contains: C:/www/foswiki/lib C:/Perl64/site/lib C:/Perl64/lib .

Could you please suggest how to rectify this issue?

I'm not sure what is going on here. What version and distribution of Perl is installed? Strawberry? ActiveState? Also what web server are you running.

Please make sure that C:/www/foswiki/lib/Foswiki/Aux/MuteOut.pm exists. It is shipped with Foswiki, so it should exist.

Thanks a lot for your reply. Please find below the details: Perl 5, version - 24, subversion - 1 (ActiveState) Running on Apache/2.4.25 (Win 64) I did not find Aux Folder within "C:/www/foswiki/lib/Foswiki/". It seems this folder was missing from the Foswiki release which I have downloaded. Let me try to download latest Foswiki release and see if this folder exists in that. Will copying "Aux/MuteOut.pm" from latest release be sufficient or do I need to execute some command after copying it.

I downloaded Foswiki-2.1.4.zip from foswiki.org, but when I try to unzip it , I am getting below error C:\Foswiki-2.1.4.zip: Cannot create Foswiki-2.1.4\lib\Foswiki\Aux\MuteOut.pm ! The system cannot find the path specified.

-- FahadOzair - 10 Oct 2017

That is really strange. Is there any chance your local system or anti-virus is blocking creation of that directory or path? I've unzipped the file here and it expands fine:

 unzip ../building/Foswiki-2.1.4.zip 
Archive:  ../building/Foswiki-2.1.4.zip
   creating: Foswiki-2.1.4/
   creating: Foswiki-2.1.4/pub/
...
  inflating: Foswiki-2.1.4/lib/Foswiki/Serialise.pm  
   creating: Foswiki-2.1.4/lib/Foswiki/Aux/
  inflating: Foswiki-2.1.4/lib/Foswiki/Aux/MuteOut.pm  
  inflating: Foswiki-2.1.4/lib/Foswiki/Attrs.pm  
  inflating: Foswiki-2.1.4/lib/Foswiki/MetaCache.pm  
...

Did any other files during the unzip fail to expand? You can try manually downloading Aux\MuteOut.pm from https://raw.githubusercontent.com/foswiki/distro/FoswikiRelease02x01x04/core/lib/Foswiki/Aux/MuteOut.pm

Googled it out and found we can not create any folder by name "AUX" in Windows. I think this is the reason why unzipping was getting failed and hence unable to place MuteOut.pm file in this directory.

Any suggestions on this. Do I need to change the folder name Aux to something different and change in all the files where ever referenced.

-- FahadOzair - 11 Oct 2017

Yikes. You can tell that we don't do windows much here. That file was added in Foswiki 2.1.3. It's only used in 1 place that I can find: lib/Foswiki/Configure/Wizards/AutoConfigureEmail.pm. So you could rename it to Auxil, and then in 2 files, you need to change all ::Aux to ::Auxil

Changing this to needing follow-up in tasks.

Created Tasks.Item14515 Thanks for the report and the solution!

-- GeorgeClark - 11 Oct 2017

Once again Thanks a lot for your Help and Support. I changed the folder name to Auxil and made the necessary changes in both the files as suggested. Now I am not getting this Error message and it seems to be working fine.
