    In order to make the plain guestbook work i had to set permissions to 666 on the .guestbook file. Is this normal?

    Anyone else seen similar?

    Thanks!

    Yep! Couldn't get mine to work until I saw your post and tried the CHMOD idea. Thanks!

    chmod 666 .guestbook

    This fixes the simple guestbook problem but only until you click on 'Manage Guestbook' when they are reset to 755 and it doesn't work again.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    a fix

    to fix the problem with the permissions being set back to 755 from 666 you can chattr +a .guestbook in the root of the site.

    Hope that helps!

    This seemed to work also

    I also had this problem reported today, where the customer could not view or add her guestbook entries.

    After some checking I found that none of the domains could use the simple guestbook on her server, but on another server domains could. Permissions were the same on both servers (755 for the .guestbook file and the script)

    After copying the good script from one server to the other, the guestbook runs fine. So perhaps some copies of guestbook.cgi may have been corrupted.

    Is there a permanent fix to this annoying bug? Clients keep on harassing me about this issue over and over and over again.

    And I've tried the chattr solution, but that's only temporary because then they can't delete entries.
