Yesterday morning I went to check out my admin pages and I got this:


The website server has not been able to respond to your request.

I reinstalled the sapphire and cms folders using FTP, but nothing changed. What can I do? This is NO fun!

I tried ?debug=1 , ?flush=1

still nothing.

The only thing I did just before I got this problem was that I logged out.

This is not fun! What can I do????

Thanks for any help on this self-destruction mode.

inside your _config.php file, add this line:


This should then show you the error, rather than give you a page without any debugging information.

If you don't know what the error means, then please reply back. :-)

There is some ID missing for some reason.....

any hints?

The problem must be in the database I guess....

Looks like your NextPage / PrevPage controls are the cuplrit?
