One of the admins on the site said the last thing he was doing was looking in NukeSentinal about a person that could not access the site.

He then says after finishing with NukeSenntinal he can no longer see the left admin menu in the Forum ACP.

Just to touch base again: The left "pane" is missing in the forum ACP.

Could the new version of PHP have anything to do with this?

Edit: I installed the newest NukeSentinal to see if it woudl fix the issue but it hasn't.

Well, the two definitely do not have anything to do with each other. I suspect it was related to the server changes and was just now noticed.

I suspect that you may have had HTTP Auth set up on the modules/Forums/admin directory or maybe there is an .htaccess file in there? Remember about 2 years back all the exploits going directly against the scripts within this directory? The immediate stop-gap was to do either HTTP Auth (which you could have even set up via cPanel) or .htaccess.

Of course, those holes have long since been plugged as long as you are on the latest BBtoNuke.

I have some custom mods installed on the forums and hence have not upgraded. I am still running phpBB 2.0.19.

I had HTTP Auth enabled with an .htaccess file in the public_html

If I remove the .htaccess would this solve the issue?

I have no .htaccess in modules/Forums/admin

No, do not remove that. So, there is no .htaccess file in the modules/Forums/admin directory?

If not, I am not sure what this could be, except maybe have him try a couple different browsers.

You might also want to see if there could be any statements that you have added to your root level .htaccess which might cause some form of redirect that might be picking up on one of these directory names or file...

Also, any chance you can post (or send me) a picture of exactly what it looks like?

No .htaccess in my modules/Forums/admin

Here is the beginning of my root .htaccess.


Code:
Options All -Indexes

DirectoryIndex index.php index.htm index.html

# -------------------------------------------
# Start of NukeSentinel(tm) admin.php Auth
# -------------------------------------------
<Files .ftaccess>
  deny from all
</Files>

<Files .staccess>
  deny from all
</Files>

# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Leave this block commented out unless HTTPAuth is NOT available in your NukeSentinel(tm) Admin Panel.
# This code is mainly for use with CGI Authentication and most servers do not require it.
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# <Files admin.php>
#    <Limit GET POST PUT>
#       require valid-user
#    </Limit>
#    AuthName "Restricted"
#    AuthType Basic
#   AuthUserFile /path/to/your/.staccess
# </Files>
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

# -------------------------------------------
# Start of NukeSentinel(tm) DENY FROM area
# -------------------------------------------

Ok, we've rules out the "easy ones". See if you get anything different with FireFox.

This frame is not loading for a reason, but IE is not showing it. May also need to look at your Apache error and possibly the access log to see if it can give us any hints.

(BTW, I am probably not going to be back on-line until morning...)

I can only offer this then:

You'll need to dig into them. I have not seen this and I've been running PHP5 for over a year. However, I have NOT been running PHPSuExec. So, I do wonder if that has anything to do with it. Hopefully the logs will give you/us a clue.
